After ​two ​successful ​years ​the ​Mondraker ​Gravity ​Rally, ​in ​association ​with ​the ​National ​Trust, ​will ​return ​for ​a ​third ​year. ​Over ​the ​past ​two ​years ​the ​Exmoor ​based ​event ​has ​established ​itself ​as ​one ​of ​the ​UK's ​best ​gravity ​enduro ​weekends: ​good ​vibes, ​good ​beer ​and ​of ​course ​great ​riding ​are ​all ​trademarks ​of ​this ​event. ​It's ​competitive ​- ​but ​it's ​also ​a ​great ​laugh.

For ​2014 ​the ​organising ​team ​at ​Shred ​are ​delighted ​to ​announce ​a ​second ​date ​to ​make ​up ​a ​mini ​series ​across ​the ​Summer ​of ​2014. ​The ​first ​event ​will ​be ​held ​on ​the ​weekend ​of ​July ​5/6th ​at ​the ​now ​infamous ​Holnicote ​Estate ​in ​Exmoor ​National ​Park, ​the ​second ​event ​will ​be ​September ​13/14th ​at ​Newnham ​Park, ​Plymouth ​- ​right ​on ​the ​edge ​of ​Dartmoor ​National ​Park.

Shred's ​Steve ​Toze ​is ​pleased ​with ​the ​outlook ​for ​2014, ​"I've ​wanted ​to ​bring ​an ​event ​back ​to ​Newnham ​Park ​since ​I ​organised ​the ​massive ​1998 ​Grundig ​World ​Cup ​as ​a ​youngster. ​The ​park ​offers ​different ​challenges ​to ​the ​Exmoor ​venue ​and ​with ​the ​help ​of ​local ​landowners ​I ​think ​we'll ​be ​able ​to ​showcase ​some ​of ​the ​astounding ​trails ​the ​Plym ​Valley ​area ​has ​to ​offer. ​Exmoor ​continues ​to ​blow ​us ​away ​and ​amazingly ​we ​keep ​finding ​new ​trails ​for ​stages ​that ​are ​simply ​awesome. ​We're ​also ​building ​new ​trails ​on ​Exmoor ​which ​is ​a ​great ​legacy. ​They're ​going ​to ​be ​two ​really ​great ​riding ​weekends."

2014 ​also ​sees ​the ​introduction ​of ​a ​completely ​new ​timing ​system, ​Event ​Manager ​Jon ​Catney ​said, ​"We're ​still ​taking ​abuse ​from ​screwing ​up ​the ​timing ​on ​a ​stage ​last ​year ​so ​we've ​covered ​our ​butts ​by ​purchasing ​what ​we ​consider ​to ​be ​the ​best ​timing ​system ​currently ​available ​in ​the ​UK ​- ​if ​not ​the ​World. ​It's ​the ​same ​system ​used ​by ​the ​World ​Enduro ​Series ​and ​we ​hope ​this ​will ​give ​Mondraker ​Gravity ​Rally ​that ​final ​piece ​in ​the ​jigsaw, ​with ​times ​available ​immediately ​after ​each ​stage. ​Real ​time ​'live ​timing' ​is ​not ​realistic ​due ​to ​the ​long ​stages ​and ​terrain ​but ​we're ​testing ​it ​over ​the ​winter ​in ​our ​RaceFace ​Circus ​of ​Dirt ​enduro's ​so ​we'll ​be ​pin ​sharp ​and ​ready ​for ​action."

Of ​course ​both ​events ​will ​feature ​a ​large ​dollop ​of ​South ​West ​hospitality ​with ​our ​main ​sponsors ​all ​returning ​for ​2014, ​expect ​the ​usual ​massive ​prize ​raffle, ​free ​brake ​pads ​and ​service ​assistance ​from ​RWD, ​the ​finest ​coffee ​on ​the ​planet ​thanks ​to ​Rockets ​& ​Rascals ​and ​local ​ale ​from ​our ​friends ​at ​Exmoor ​ale. ​We ​expect ​a ​few ​more ​trade ​stands, ​a ​larger ​food ​offering ​and ​of ​course ​we'll ​have ​a ​rocking ​band ​for ​each ​event ​too.

Entry ​is ​open ​now, ​it's ​£50 ​with ​only ​400 ​places ​available ​for ​each ​event. ​Last ​year's ​event ​attracted ​a ​full ​field ​so ​early ​entry ​is ​encouraged.

Please ​note ​we ​cannot ​offer ​refunds ​for ​entry ​cancellations, ​but ​we'll ​be ​happy ​to ​transfer ​your ​entry ​to ​another ​event. ​
