2  - 4 November 2015 17:28

Emailed BC on this just last week and to date no one has put in a bid to stage it,they did also add that they would put it out for tenders again ,but nothing yet.

Someone, I forgot who but he seemed to know what he was talking about, told me it wouldn't be Selkirk. Shame, I've just moved there...

Blog and other random thoughts and waffle

Anyone have any new information?

You are right AndyH it isn't Selkirk.

Lucky it's not Hawick you moved too wink

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but just discovered this and thought I'd provide a bit of background info,

I'm the organiser (along with Pete Laing) of the Selkirk MTB Marathon. We did bid to BC to host the Champs this year, but also asked that they support the event properly (not cash, but 'cost free' stuff like podiums, branding, a bit of promo, razzamatazz etc.) - essentially we wanted them to show a bit of respect for the athletes racing the British Champs.

They declined.

So we reluctantly withdrew our bid to host. All we wanted was for BC to support their championships and the athletes racing it.

We might have another crack in 2017, or might just host the 'UK Championships' or similar wink

The courses are still there though, and it's all happening on 1st May. Pre-entries are open until 26th April.

Yep, sounds about right for BC.
Well done for trying and still hosting the event.
Definitely try again next year but if no one else is holding it, a U.K. Champs alternative sounds pretty cool too

Good to see it on again. Just tried to email organiser but message failed to send.

Do we know whether jerseys are to be awarded to Elites only, or will there be something for the Vets and Grand Vets to fight for?

Well done Matt for organising this!
The BC website states there's jerseys for senior and vets male/female.
