Words from Stilettos on Wheels organisers:
"Stilettos On Wheels is a xc mountain bike race for women-only, fun is at the heart of the track design and we aim to provide something challenging for every level of rider, from beginners to expert racers. The race in 2014 will take place on 6th September once again in the beautiful setting of Stanmer Park, Brighton, with a smile-inducing course swooping up and down through woodland singletrack. We use a professional chip timing system so supporters and pairs can keep track of times and positions throughout the event and we also have an amazing photographer on hand to make sure riders can get photographic evidence of how rad they looked racing round the course! Plans for next year’s arena facilities include a range of demo bikes for riders to trial during the event, bike maintenance area, physio clinic for pre- and post-ride leg rubs, and an expo of women-specific bike kit and all other things bike related. There are also whispers about a vintage tea and cake stall to provide refreshments to both racers and their supporters.
Entries are already open on the website www.stilettosonwheels.com and you can keep up with latest news on the event on Facebook and Twitter. The ever-popular Stilettos On Wheels race jersey is also available to pre-order in 2014 aqua colour.
With more than 80 women taking part in 2013’s event we are hoping to attract an even bigger crowd in 2014, so tell your friends and we’ll see you all on the start line!"
