To celebrate KLMTB’s 10th anniversary we are organising a back to basic race xc race with all proceeds from the event going to the East Anglian Air Ambulance.  This event is being fully supported by Forestry England and British Cycling

The venue will be Shouldham Warren a favourite of many riders with its flowing single track, short sharp climbs and swooping downhill segments. As always our volunteers will ensure the trails are in pristine condition ready for the race.

Keeping with the ethos of a back-to-basics race for the eastern region this event is designed for everyone from novices for seasoned races. Our aim is to promote an all-inclusive event with stripped back categories and a relaxed atmosphere with close, competitive racing.   

Whether you enter the hour, hour n half or 3-hour category, positions are gained by riders who complete the most laps within the chosen race time. It’s worth noting that racers are permitted to complete their final lap as long as they start within their time category, i.e., a rider in the 3 hour category can go out for another lap as long as the lap is started before the finish flag goes up.

There will be on the day prizes for the top 3 riders in each category.  Places will be limited to 300 riders.

We are also encouraging riders to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance by raising individual sponsorship.  By supporting KLMTB with our fundraising activities, you will be helping the East Anglian Air Ambulance to continue providing this vital support to those who unfortunately require that lifesaving assistance.

Entries will by via British Cycling and will open on 9th December 2023.
