Mick Ives Provides Newnham 90 Warm Up
The legendary Mick Ives will be providing a mini tour of Dartmoor as a warm up ride to the 2002 Newnham 90. Mick will lead a 'leisurely' 17 mile ride onto the moor with a 'refreshment' stop at a Dartmoor hostelry on Sep 7. The ride will begin at the Newnham 90 registration area at midday and costs £8 for CTC members and £10 for non members but best of all will be free for all Newnham 90 participants.
Also on Sep 7 will be the Shred Short Track XC event with cash prizes, plus the pasta party with live music and a bar and also the chance to get a pre ride massage.
All camping facilities will be located adjacent to the main registration/party area and there will even be the opportunity to try your hand at paintball on site. Newnham 90 entries are coming in thick and fast but there is still time to get your entry form in before the closing date of Sep 2, at the current rate of entry there will be around 600 participants.
This will be the second staging of the Newnham 90 which mixes a blend of previous Newnham World Cup courses with moorland bridleways, forest road, singletrack and quarries to make an excellent route. The event is one of the few endurance weekends that is non competitive which brings a unique and enjoyable atmosphere with a high ratio of female participants.
The event is supported by Freestyle Clothing, Shred Magazine, Bikemagic.com, Halfords (who will be providing technical support along the route) and HiGH5. For an entry form send an sae to Newnham 90, PO Box 11, Plympton, Plymouth PL7 5XU, download one from Bikemagic.com or singletrackworld.com or if you are at the Marin Dusk til Dawn then you can get one from the Shred stand.
