Due to the increasing popularity of the race we are going to introduce a new Singlespeed category for any super-women riding a one-geared wonder!
There will also be the usual two-hour solo category and four-hour pairs and solo categories.
Following on from its success last year we will also be offering the Cinderella lap for any riders who just want to have a go at one lap of the course and there will be prizes for this category too!
Because we think that every woman who completes the Stilettos On Wheels race is a champion we will continue to present every finisher with a special medal, but for 2014 we will also be having extra prizes for the top five riders in each category.
Many of our regular sponsors have already signed up to support the event for this year and we've already been promised some really cool biking prizes, one more incentive for that winter training. Just saying.
Stilettos On Wheels is a xc mountain bike race for women-only, fun is at the heart of the track design and we aim to provide something challenging for every level of rider, from beginners to expert racers.
The race will take place in the beautiful setting of Stanmer Park, Brighton, with a smile-inducing course swooping up and down through woodland singletrack.
We use a professional chip timing system so supporters and pairs can keep track of times and positions throughout the event and we also have an amazing photographer on hand to make sure riders can get photographic evidence of how rad they looked racing round the course!
Plans for the arena facilities include a range of demo bikes for riders to trial during the event, bike maintenance area, physio clinic for pre- and post-ride leg rubs, and an expo of women-specific bike kit and all other things bike related.
There are also whispers about a vintage tea and cake stall to provide refreshments to both racers and their supporters.
Entries are already open on the website www.stilettosonwheels.com and you can keep up with latest news on the event on Facebook and Twitter.
The ever-popular Stilettos On Wheels race jersey is also available to pre-order in 2014 aqua colour.
With more than 80 women taking part in last year's event we are hoping to attract an even bigger crowd this year, so tell your friends and we'll see you all on the start line!
