MEET THE SPONSORS
With only a handful of days before the 2018 series kicks off at Hadleigh Park we thought we would let you know about some of the key support we have enabling us to continue what we do. Our thanks to Darren Evans for continuing sponsorship for 2018 with Epic Orange. Darren helps us with a wide range of products from flags, banners, medals and much more. If you're in a club or group and looking at any purchases like club kit or branded marquees then Daz is your man. You will be able to easily spot him in the event arena at the Epic Orange Team tent.

Just been over at Haders this am, looking at a few tweaks to the course with Hadleigh MTB Clubs Kevin Darragh. A few wet bits out and a few dry bits in and its looking pretty damn good. B line for Final descent being tested this day in 2018, so all looking very good right now.
Entry is looking a lot like being a record, so get yours in before its too late, it'll be epic !!

Now then, this Hadleigh Park opener......
We are well aware of what a challenge Hadleigh can be so given its the first race of the season, and we know you all had too much Turkey over Christmas...... and that Dry January got put off until next year, we've been very kind and gentle to you. The course we are putting together will only have three of the technical features in it, and two of them we have never used before.

1) The rocky technical climb before the pits. Its short but its hard. There will be an advantage to doing it, and there will be a "B" line if you don' fancy it.
2) Final descent: We've never put it into an MSG before for want of a suitable B line. We think we've cracked that, so we are going to include it for those who like a spectacular entry into the arena. Again it will be B lined.

The other will be Oak Tree Drop, again B lined.

Those apart we have sought to make the course fun, we have tried to take out as much climbing as possible, and we have kept the course in the lee of the hill to give shelter from the wind if there is any on the day.

So no excuses, it will be the most fun you've had at Hadleigh and 90% on man made trails, so the best chance of not getting muddy too.
