Just one month to go until the next women-only Stilettos On Wheels mtb race in the sunny seaside resort of Brighton! The event will be held on Saturday 7th September at Stanmer Park, Brighton. This is the same venue as last year and boasts some fantastic swooping singletrack through the woodland, as well as the lovely green park where the event arena will be. Holding with the mantra ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ we’ve kept the course pretty much the same as last year, the exception being that this year riders will be following bright purple arrows through the trees!
Once again we have a two-hour and a four-hour solo race, and we also have the popular four-hour pairs category. With only one month to go until the event there’s still time for a bit of last-minute training. Hopefully you’re all having a fantastic summer of bike rides, but if not here’s a few top tips from the Stilettos On Wheels team http://totalwomenscycling.com/fitness/training-tips-from-the-stilettos-on-wheels-team-4891/
An array of event sponsors will be in the arena on the day to show off lots of lovely bike products. Including Prestige Cycles, Bamboo Bikes, Ana Niccola, Trail42, Lezyne, Active Physio Clinics, I Love Girl Riders, USE, Exposure Lights, Od Pod, MT Zoom, Torq, Morvelo . Following on from the success of last year’s event our sponsors were more than happy to get back on board for 2013, so we’ve got lots of fantastic prizes to give out on race day. Every finisher will receive a special Stilettos On Wheels medal, and we also have bespoke leather medals for the top three finishers in each category.
Registration is still open and will be available online until 03.09.2013. Riders can register on the day, although this will be a little bit more costly than the pre-entry. We will also have this year’s gorgeous purple water bottles and specially designed race jerseys available to buy at the event.
We haven’t forgotten your support crews either. Pizza Amore will be offering delicious pizzas (what else!) and Dinkyccino will be on hand with a range of reviving coffees to ensure everyone is well fed and watered.
For any riders who are feeling a bit nervous about the race (or just want a bit of a warm up) we will be providing guided pre-race rides of the course. Knowing what’s around the corner, and where the chicken run is if required, can definitely provide a confidence boost during the event. Pre-rides will be held Friday 06.09 at 5pm and 6pm? If you’d like to take part in a course pre-ride please contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The race begins at 11am on Saturday 7th September, looking forward to seeing you all there!
