Following the huge success of the Hopetech Women rides in 2016, organising a grass-roots Enduro race was a natural step for us. The PMBA race series is one of the most popular amongst racers. Known for being inviting and unimtimidating for first time racers, but also fun and competitive for the more experiences, advanced riders - the PMBA races cater for all. Partnering up with the PMBA at our local Gisburn Forest trails was the perfect combination.

The race is intended to be a grassroots enduro for women only, with emphasis most definitely on fun. Racing for the first, second, third or twentieth time can be a nerve-wracking thought. The idea behind this event is create a fun route, which can be ridden solo or as part of a group - where some of the more down-hill sections of the route are timed. You can cruise down the trail at your own pace, test yourself and push a little harder or really take it seriously and see how you fare against other ladies. The choice is yours, there is no pressure.

We, (Hope Technology) have heavily subsidised the event so the PMBA can pass those savings onto you. The event will run if we have 30 or 300 entries, and part of the "Hopetech Women" 2017 event program. 

A shortish lap with 3 stages will give plenty of time to chat to the other women on the day. 3 stages - suitable for novices but fun for the experienced racer too. Morning practice Afternoon race lap.


Onsite facilities: 

  • Parking
  • Cafe - with cake!
  • Permanent flush toilets

As with all PMBA Enduro's, this event will use the SI Air+ Contactless timing system
