This event is Mens Only Solo 3hr race (Women please see Bella Buxton for the all women’s event that day) and Mens and Mixed teams racing on a new short course format.
Buxton Bootcamp Mens and Teams - Saturday 27th Nov 2021
The course for solo is roughly 12-14k of fast flowing singletrack deep in the beautiful forest in Buxton. If you haven’t ridden here before, then you’re missing out and this event will be your chance in this format!
Teams get to smash it out on a 5km course where you are not allowed to do more than 1 lap in a row. So get your tactics and team mates right.

“Thanks for an awesome event on Saturday:)
My son Charlie and I had a brilliant time.
His first real competition, he was so enthusiastic and up for getting that last lap in.
The short course really made it an exciting quick change over, loved it.
And it allowed him(13yr old) to be able to do it without it being too daunting.”
