Thetford Racing Presents ONIT
One Night In Thetford; A 12 hour mountain bike xc endurance event on the 6th and 7th October 2018. Choose to race with Solo, in a Pair or a Team of up to 4 riders around the single-track and fire roads of Fire Road 24, Thetford Forest from 8pm til 8am.
With racing from 8pm ’til 8am, ONIT will test your endurance and handling skills but will leave you smiling ear from ear as you add to your lap count!
Racing kicks off at 8pm with a controlled lead-out loop before the racers come back through the Event Village and head off into the darkness of the lap.
Solos ride for the 12 hours, stopping as and when they wish in the dedicated solo pit arena.
Pairs and Teams go out onto the course in a relay, completing a lap and then either choose to carry on around the change over area within the Event Village and complete another lap or come into the change over area and hand over the baton (wrist band) to their team mate to collect their bike from the bike park area and then proceed to enter the course and complete a lap.
Riders in the 2-Up category ride for the 12 hours together, crossing the start/finish line within 1 minute of each other or a time penalty will incurred. The final lap time will be decided on the time of the second rider crossing the line. This is a new concept with endurance racing and will give riders the change of pairing up and supporting your team mate around the course.
Riders bikes need to be race ready and capable of riding throughout the darkness. At least one front light will be required. We’d recommend two front lights, one on your handle bar and another on your helmet. Rear lights are not required.
Laps need to be completed before 8am. If they are completed after the 8am finish flag goes up, your lap will not count towards your overall position.
Winner for each category will be decided by the highest number of laps completed within the allotted race time.
There will be podium presentations, top quality prizes and bespoke medals for the top three finishes in each category.
Along with top 3 prizes, there will also be a number of spot prizes up for grabs.
ONLINE ENTRY WILL CLOSE ON 23RD SEPTEMBER at 8pm
