TORQ in your Sleep - The Hot One - Results and Photos
Ten. TEN. 10. It doesn't matter how you write the number, that's a milestone we are very pleased to have achieved since the very first TORQ in Your Sleep in 2008. You know, the Wet and Windy One where eze-ups and tents blew around the field, vehicles got stuck in the mud and we all got a bit emotional at this new 12hour venture. By contrast this was the hottest yet. But #10 was hanging in the balance only a few weeks ago as red-tape (not the course marking type!) reared it's head and almost put a stop to the event. A massive debt of gratitude goes to the very hardworking backoffice team for pulling out all the stops. We can happily say we're looking forward to #11 and beyond at Minley, so you might just as well block book your August Bank Holiday weekends now!
The course is naturally the highlight of the race and it never fails to dissapoint. In the words of one rider who's likely raced all ten; "It's like meeting up with an old friend. They've aged a bit, got a bit rougher, a few more lines and wrinkles have appeared. But you know you can embrace them and party together and enjoy the best and worst of the challenging ups and downs that lay ahead."
