April - Track n Trail: GNCC Scramble Round 2 kicks off at Thorncombe
Track n Trail Grand National Cross Country Scramble Series continues at
Thorncombe we have tagged this venue Enduro heaven, when you see her you will
know why. Last summer we added a purpose built GNCC race track to this
already outstanding venue.
This track has everything an Enduro rider could ask for! Grassy, open
moorland, no shortage of wooded terrain and two craggy stubble fields to tear
through. The first as soon as you set off at the starting area and the second
to break up the woodland sections. Plus there are rocky streams beds, some
3rd and 4th gear flowing, open going and plenty of air time including a table
top! You will need to keep your eyes stretched and your mind focused. I,
myself, cannot wait to have a go on this track of 3 to 4 miles of cross
country Heaven. This track will be one of the best Enduro tracks you will
ride in 2015. This will be the only chance to ride this GNCC race track this
year. Bring it on the 26th April!
