Home > Racing > 12:12 TORQ in your SLEEP


This event is by PRE-ENTRY ONLY, which will now close approx 1 week before. There is NO ENTRY ON THE DAY.



TORQ in your Sleep is headline sponsored by sports nutrition experts TORQ Fitness with a raft of co-sponsors and supporters. It offers 6 hour riding for Solos, Pairs & Teams and 3 hour riding for Solos plus Single Speed and Fat Bike categories. Expect a superb, well prepared, classic XC endurance course.


The well established XC endurance venue with excellent parking is just minutes from the M3 junction 4A with free trackside camping. The Arena has all you will need in the way of TORQ stands, toilets, water, quality catering, results screen, mechanical support & spares.

The course will be based on the end of the Chobham Ridges overlooking the Pirbright & Bisley Firing Ranges with a good mix of free draining pine wood and open heath. Expect a mix of short sharp steep climbs and some longer gentler ones, with fast single track descents and plenty of resting/fueling sections too. There’ll be numerous excellent trails included. The car park and start area are surrounded on three sides by quite a bit of the course so it’s an ideal spectator’s venue.


The venue will open from 6pm Saturday evening and again at 7am on Sunday morning with free trackside camping available. Event Registration will be open from 8am for Pair and Team confirmations and number board collections. The course will be open from 8am for pre-riding. After the usual rider briefing at 11.45, riding for all categories will start at Noon and there will be podium presentations at 3.15 and 6.15pm. We're really sorry but due to time constraints, we will not be able to run any children's rides this year.


As usual, a TORQ Trade Stand Arena, quality catering, toilets, water, event photographer, results screen, mechanical support, spares, trophies and lots of winner's and killer prize draw spot prizes courtesy of event sponsor TORQ Fitness.
