PLATE COLLECTION

Before you can race you need to pick up your race number plate as this is your identification and includes your timing chip (so please do not bend your plate!)

To avoid the Sunday morning queue and get some more pre-race snooze, you can pick up your number plate at our BBQ and beers night at Wembley Cycles on Thursday 6 April.  Come in for a drink and a bite to eat, pick up your plate, get some bike or race tips from the guys or just enjoy meeting some other mountain bikers that will be out there on the day.  You can also grab all of your nutrition requirements and anything else you might need such as gas canisters, spare tubes etc.  Here is a list of suggestions to take with you for the race.

  • At least 1 litre of water for every hour that you think you will be out there.
  • At least 1 form of nutrition for every hour that you will be riding.  We have fantastic nutrition available at Wembley Cycles including Em's Power Bars, Clif bars and bloks, Shotz gels, Pure Hydration, 32GI hydration and GU gels and stroopwafle.  It is much better to be carrying too much food than to run out half way around a lap.  
  • 2 tubes
  • A good pump or CO2 canisters
  • Tyre levers
  • Spare chain link and chain breaker
  • Multitool

Plate collection will begin at 5.00pm on Thursday 6 April and will continue at Wembley Cycles until Saturday 5pm.

Wembley Cycles will have a number of pre-race specials on the night
