Thread: King Of 3 Rock Next Weekend don't miss it !

  1. #1

    Default King Of 3 Rock Next Weekend don't miss it !

    If I were you people I wouldn't miss this..the trails are dry up there at the moment and the stages are riding brilliant. If you were going to avoid this race don't I think its going to be a doozy..I can't wait to get back up and ride them again. Well done to the MADsers and their diggers..I thought they were MAD, running an event this late in the year but they have done a great job and its worth supporting.

    A reminder from Mark, MAD Club Secretary



    In case anyone has missed this, MAD are running the King of Three Rock next week, would you be able to put some info up on your website or pass it onto your members? It would be greatly appreciated and would be deadly to see as many clubs as possible at the race. Heres some info:



    The King of 3 Rock is a two day Enduro MTB event on October 13th/14th 2012 which includes the Team-Trail-Thrash (Saturday), and Dixie-Dash races (Sunday), culminating in the ultimate accolade for any mountain biker in the country – the crowning of the King of Three Rock!!



    We'll be using much different trails to what those which the Ticknock Gravity Enduro used, so there'll be loads of variety and fast techy stuff.



    Our focus in designing these trails has been to create and link downhill sections which have a real test of a mountainbiker's skills and ability to ride techy stuff fast and clean.


    The sections will suit both XC heads and DH heads, so expect to see a variety of riders on the podium


    There will not be any craic-killing climbing in any of the stages.

    Plenty of new trails you likely have never seen before too, we're very busy over the next few weeks getting all the trails in perfect shape for this, and we're also ensuring we have back-up trails in case the weather tries to make a mess of things, which it won't of course because we're unofficially into "summer" now.

    We've widened various sections to make them faster, and cut back a load of grass and nasty gorse to really open-up the sections for speed and alternative lines.

    We've done a lot of planning to put in trails that go from some of the highest points to the lowest points on Three Rock, with 3 stages feature a vertical drop of approx 500 ft each!



    Heres a quick promo video, with more to follow:

    I was out riding the stages yesterday and they're riding brilliantly. There is a bit of rain forecast this week but it won't have much effect and there are still a few tweaks that we're making with input from some top riders. I always think October is the best month of the year for lashing around the woods on your bike and this is going to be a great event for the end of the season - don't miss out!

    Default The King loves you all!

    Hello my EPIC friends
    All is looking very well on the hills - trails are rolling fast and dry & they're a lot of fun - all the stuff you like and nothing you don't!
    We've added plenty of new sections to keep you amused, and some old sections revived and groomed to mix in perfectly with the new stuff.

    Even 'Dark Horse' Mulchrone is signed-up, a man who could do some very serious damage in his category, mark my words,
    he is and always was a man to watch when things get fast and technical, no pressure now Damo!

    Entry is closing Friday night so make sure to sign-up and enjoy the last great MTB Enduro ripper of 2012.

    Looking forward to seeing all the smiling excited faces!

    Best Regards
    King

    Here's the view looking backwards up Stage 2 - yes my friends, some nice rocks!
    And that's AFTER I took all the big durty evil ones out!
    Make sure ye come along on Saturday for the practice, there's some bits your gonna need to have a quick once-over to pick the smoothest & fastest line for Sunday. Nothing dangerous or big drops etc.. but it'll pay to know what's coming around the next corner.

    WEEKEND: Saturday will probably start dry, but widespread rain is likely to develop later on Saturday, and the rain is likely to continue for much of Sunday.

    All stages in very good shape at the moment

    We've targeted a few yards of trail that may be a bit wet so will be bucketting the hardcore into them on Friday.
    We raked the mud out and rocked-up a few spots on Ewoks so they're dramatically improved.

    I'm hard-pressed to think of anywhere on the 6 stages that'll suffer from the weather, we'll even be doing some touch-up on Saturday after the practice to ensure every trail is in tip-top shape.

    We're not going to let the weather upset the fun - get yourselves signed-up and we'll see you there!
