Potash Spring Classic – Race Report

On the weekend Debs, Ian, Trevor and Myself took part in the first Potash Spring Classic.  The course was twisty and narrow and as the private wood is usually used for paint balling they were able to incorporate some interesting man-made features. You can get a flavour of what it was like in the video below.

Debs and Ian had minor offs and I had to pull out after four laps due to mechanical problems but we all survived to enjoy the post race cakes provided by It’s a Cupcake thing.  Out of the four of us Trevor had the best result but it will be double cake for Ian because as one of the fastest on the timed ‘Segment Slam’ he has won more CAKE!

I really enjoyed the event and would recommend racing here to anyone, from beginners to seasoned racers.  It was a very well managed event with a great course and a friendly atmosphere.  Many thanks to Travers Bikes, all the volunteers and British Cycling for making it the event it was.

If you interested in taking part in this type of racing then check out the Essex Summer Evening Series, which will be taking place at Hadleigh Park and Potash this summer.

Many thanks to Dave, Vickie and Josh who supported us on the day, it’s always good to hear your name being called to spur you on 🙂

Thank you to Jim Brown for letting us use these photos.

  1. Great write-up. Thanks for everyone coming along, hope to see you all at the ESES.

    Sadly there wont be any cakes at these events but the overall prizes are worth the trip. Entry for the series is just £60 for 7 races!
