An invitational event organised by The Bicycle Academy’s Andrew Denham.
Fifteen bike builders each with a £300 budget to build and equip a clunker. Each frame has to be hand built for the event. No suspension, discs or gears allowed. Stealing and sabotage a possibility but not really in the spirit of things! Three races. Downhill, dual slalom and a mass Le Mans style start race to end the event. Set up deep in the second Somerset forest, add torrential rain courtesy of storm Imogen, a whole heap of mud, a 2CV van full of Break Fluid coffee, a bacon sandwich or two and a few crates of beer and you’re in for a great weekend!
