Less than 60 days to go!


Less than 60 days to go…………..when Minehead’s town centre will be humming, thrumming and whirring to the sound of an 80-strong peloton in at least 2 of Saturdays races. Full fields and strong entries are guaranteed for all the National Youth Series races with the Youth A Boys already oversubscribed. Great numbers from the girls Youth A and B too.


Sundays Youth A also almost FULL……..just 6 places left!!!!  First come first served!


First entries now confirmed for the GoRace event, (for cat 4’s/Youth A's without points, uncategorised riders and non-BC members) with local legend Nathan Bale and super-smooth style-king Erik Whiteman the first to nail their colours to the mast.  Great show fellas! Still waiting for that first lady entry…….


The local club, Minehead Merlins, are already well-represented with youngsters Joe and Louis Wright and Fin and Reuben Walter among the early entries and lining up against the nation’s very best on both Saturday and Sunday. Younger sister Franny Wright takes on the under 10’s on Sunday.  Rider entries are strong from every corner of the UK with all the home nations represented, including names from the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

Still plenty of entries available for youngsters up to 14 years of age on the Sunday, so well suited to all the Merlins.


So finally, a big shout out to all senior members of promoting club, Minehead CC, show the youngsters the way and get entered now.  Its what the GoRace is about…..defo the race of the day in 2018!!!!!!
