TORQ in Your Sleep: updates from our Sponsors
by Jane Lucas, 15 Aug 12.
Well the superb Olympics are over and now it's time to get up off the sofa and ride. Yes, it's less than 2 weeks to the Gorrick 12:12 Torq in your Sleep and entry will be closing this Friday. See Gorrick 12:12 for full details and online entry and this latest news item for the weekend timetable, but just in case you need any more reasons to take part, here are a few more from our fantastic Sponsors...
Torq Fitness our headline sponsor will be there with the Torq wagon, on hand to discuss and advise you on your fuelling needs. To get you off to a good start your rider pack will contain fuelling system information and a delicious Torq bar. They are also putting up a huge number of product prizes for the top three in each category. See www.torqfitness.co.uk to find out more.
Mountain Trax are, as ever, supporting us in the 12:12, and this year will be advising on and promoting GORE BIKE WEAR® and offering special discounted race weekend prices. There will be a wide range of discounted clothing on sale from the Gore collection and to make your choices even easier, GORE BIKE WEAR® will be offering their Try Before You Buy scheme. This allows you to test out the product you’re interested in while in a real riding environment. Just choose a product, take it for a spin and drop it back at the end. It's a great opportunity to test the latest award winning ALP-X & FUSION MTB specific products. All you’ll need is a form of ID and for trying out an item of demo kit you’ll receive a 12% discount voucher to use at Mountain Trax. What better way to start our 12 hour event than with some fresh new kit!
Four4th Lights. If you need information to buy or hire some lights then Four4th Lights will be there to sort it for you. Run by a long time Gorrick rider, we think their kit is innovative and impressive, so why not go to www.four4th.co.uk and have a look at what they do?
Saddle Skedaddle. Another long standing Gorrick sponsor is Saddle Skedaddle and there are some of their holidays among the many prizes to be won in the Killer Prize draw. This takes place before the main prize presentations. All you need to do is put your riding number in the Prize draw bin and you’re in with a chance, but only if you’re there when it’s drawn, otherwise it’ll be drawn again! Over the years lots of riders have won Saddle Skedaddle holidays and we’ve yet to hear of anyone who had a less than brilliant time.
We are also pleased that among others we’ll have Joolze Dymond on hand to photograph your finest moments, Mike from 1st Gear Cycles will be there with his comprehensive trade stand, the latest Shred Mag will be in your rider pack and the SRAM Technical Truck will there too, to assist you with your bike components. Finally, of course, we will all be pleased to see Phil as the evening sets in at the complimentary bar where he’ll be serving up some of his own ale from the Longdog Brewery.
So, not long to go now, entry closes this FRIDAY and there is no entry on the day. Remember too that Endurance Series points are up for grabs!
