Once again the UK’s breed of hard core extreme riders returns to Walters Arena, SA10 9LU, for a third year this weekend, January 7/8 to fight for the title of ‘King of the Valleys’.
Based in the Welsh Valleys, this year’s 15 mile circuit will include the most challenging obstacles and undulating terrain to be found anywhere in the UK. This being the very reason even the most experienced riders save this date on their calendar. From Clubman to Pros, every rider can test their mettle to decide how extreme they really are.
Saturday will be a series of tests to qualify for the main race on Sunday. The Sunday races consist of three brutal laps to push every rider and their machine to its limit. The first to complete three laps, wins.
This year sees the return of Graham Jarvis, who once again promises to challenge David Knight’s title for first place and take home the £1000 cash prize.
Second and third place have the opportunity to walk away with goodies in excess of £600 and every rider completing a minimum of one lap will receive a finishers medal.
Over 80 riders are confirmed so far and for the first time this year there is a ‘Mates Rates’ entry which allows you to challenge your fellow rider, even though this is a proper ‘guts and glory’ race for the solo rider.
Spectators are free to enter on the Saturday to support and encourage riders, before Sunday’s main race. Entry prices on Sunday are £8 for adults and £4 for children. On-site facilities will include free parking, toilets and food and drink. A free minibus will be available to ferry spectators around the course to watch riders at the extreme sections and ‘No Help Zones’, which prove more popular to watch every year.
So if you looking to break your new kit in and shake off the Christmas excess, then what better way than to enter with a mate for £99 (includes race licence and numbers). See website for details.
