Description

Round 2 - GANDALE

Round 2 takes the Nutcracker to Catterick and back to the old school NEMBA venue at Gandale!

For Adey it's like going back to his "yoof" and the days of the Yorkshire Mountain Bike Club - over 20 years ago! Then it was CATs (Caygill All Terrainers) that took over. Some big names raced here back in the day; from ex National Ladies Champ Sue Dent to trials legend Jez Avery, this course has seen some of the best.

PLEASE NOTE!!!

Gandale is private military land and as such is private property. Anybody found trespassing on the area prior to race day will be refused entry. This is a serious message and failure to comply will jeopardise the future of the event at Gandale. Thanks for your understanding.


The Rollercoaster...

First impressions aren't everything – from the car park, this course looks flat – but don't be fooled.. You'll soon realise when you start to ride it that this is the rollercoaster from hell! Short hard climb after short hard climb, there's no real rest here for anyone. The second half of the course takes in the famous water splash – a big hit in the NEMBA days. Then it's a fast blast through the flowing wooded single tracks back to the finish. It's gonna be awesome!
