TORQ in your Sleep is Gorrick’s hugely popular 12 hour weekend XC enduro event for Solos, Pairs and Teams which takes place at Minley Manor, Hants over the August Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 29 to Monday 31).
This year there are additional 6 hour plus Fat Bike and Single Speed categories. Fat Bike and Single Speed riders will be timed and listed in their ‘regular’ category but will be eligible for separate prizes.
Located just minutes from the M3 junction 4A, the course will cover a classic 8 mile figure of 8 circuit of heath land, beech woods, pine forest and open parkland. Riding for the 12 hour event starts on the Sunday at 12 noon and ends at 12 midnight, so powerful lights suitable for riding off road at night are needed.
TORQ Fitness are the headline sponsors and the event is everything that you would expect from the Gorrick team.
There’s FREE CAMPING, for those who want to make a weekend of it, from Noon on Saturday right through to 2pm on the Bank Holiday Monday afternoon.
The event offers a full programme of riding including children and young rider races on the Saturday afternoon with medals and sweets for all.
Saturday night is film night at the Marquee where you can relax and enjoy popcorn and a beer.
TORQ in your Sleep has comprehensive facilities including computerised chip timing, In-Vision results screen, a huge prize pool – with lots of spot prizes too, a bike mechanic, photographer, Marquee HQ, Trade Arena, quality catering all weekend, toilets, hot showers, DJ and music plus free beer and drinks at the main prize giving in the early hours.
