One of the highlights of the event weekend has always been the kid's races - with over 100 children taking part in 2017. With the timing of the school holidays being a little more friendly in 2018 we have now grown the concept to a 2 day, 3 stage event with the support of Islabikes.
Friday July 27th will feature 2 stages - A 2km Time Trial and a Dirt Crit with the final stage being the traditional 12 and 24 minute races on Saturday morning. Categories are spilt down into age groups and based on the child age on the day of the event:
Wolverines - U16's - Will ride 24min on Stage 3
Sabres - U12's - Will ride 24min on Stage 3
Storms - U10's - Will ride 12min on Stage 3
Rogues - U8's - Will ride 12min on Stage 3
Entrants into the Islabikes Junior Stage Race are automatically entered into their appropriate 12/24 minute race on Saturday Morning.
If the stage race is not for you but you still want to enter the 12 or 24 minute race then entries are available for this race only. Click on the link below to take you through to the online entry site. Should places be available we will be taking entries on the day.
Islabike Kids Stage 1 - Time Trial - 17.00 Friday
Islabikes Kids Stage 2 - Dirt Crit - 19.00 Friday
Islabikes Kids Stage 3 - 24/12min - 9.30 Saturday
