Ritchey TrailMasters powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport
The first ever Ritchey TrailMasters powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport is only a little more than a week away and preparations are in full flow.
We have again a few updates for the riders who have already signed up as well as for the once who are still ‘umming and arring’ if they should come along or not.
The entry for the Ritchey TrailMasters is still open and will stay open till the event starts. You can enter via the online entry till 11am on Friday (17th) morning or use the paper entry so it arrives at our office no later than Wednesday the 15th August. But failing that you can even enter at the event. Please make sure that you bring enough cash as we don’t have card facilities. To enter please go to the entry page.
There will be two Professional Massage Therapist and Body Workers on site throughout the event so please book your massage slot when you register to avoid disappointment. Massages may be available on a drop-in basis at the end of each stage but availability cannot be guaranteed.
Rates are £25.00 for 40 minutes; £20.00 for 30 minutes and £15.00 for 20 minutes. Payment in cash/cheque only.
But we don’t just have specialists for your body we also have specialists for your bike. The crew from Cycle-Tec will be with us helping riders out throughout the weekend with their knowledge and expertise. These guys have been with us for a few TransWales events and the majority of our MTB-Marathons!
EXPOSURE LIGTS night stage
To make sure that the night stage on Friday (17th) evening is a much fun as possible we will have the EXPOSURE LIGHTS crew with us as well. The guys will have their charging station for everybody who needs a top-up, hire lights as well as a few event specials on the stand. So make sure you check our their stand and get EXPOSURED up!
And we also have the specialists for your engine. The Torq team will be on site giving advice on energy foods and will have their event stand open throughout the weekend.
As you know we have lots of kids stuff going on. We will have bouncy castles, water slides, face painting, games on the lawn, kids races and so on, and so on. So simply bring your family along and have a great weekend away.
Other stuff going on
In case you missed our last rather packed newsletter which had a rather long list of things you can do, try, expect on it then make sure you give it another read here. Not bad for a small event we thought! And be assured we are not even telling you about everything we have planned.
If you have already entered or if you are thinking about please make sure that we are aware of any special dietary requirements (including vegetarian). Simply send us an email to email@example.com with your name and your requirements and we will do our best to consider them.
