Sunday September 14th is the date, Keep this date clear in your diary!
What is the MADORC? It’s the Mean and Dirty Off Road Challenge, a mountain bike long distance challenge based just outside of the city of Gloucester.
Entries will be limited to 500 and entries will be open in April. Date to come. All entrants will receive a post-ride meal included in the entry fee. Showers and changing facilities will be provided for those wishing to use them.
Car parking will be available at the start/finish event base.
The course will be mainly off-road and be challenging with plenty of climbs and of course plenty of cool and exciting descents. Cross bikes will not be suitable for this course, so be warned.
Fat bikes are welcome.
The distance will be around 90k with a 40k option. There will be a refreshment stop at 20k, where riders can decide if they wish to do the full course or head home on the shorter route. Full course details will be available close to the event date.
We will be announcing sponsors and more event details shortly.
This event will be supporting the Headway Charity.
Keep it Mean. Keep it Dirty!
We will be announcing some new dates for some spring time fun. One event will be a series of Wednesday evening bashes. 3/4 hour trash to keep you on your toes for the summer.
and last but not least we have an exciting new event coming for you all on September 14th 2014.
The MADORC 2014. Its a long distance offroad mountain bike challenge. (There will be a short course option)
Please keep this date free in your diary as it will be a biggy.
With yet another weekend of storms and flood warnings we have had to taken the decision to cancel this Sundays event.
Its been an unusual winter although we knew the area is a flood plain, but normally the floods are not as long-lasting.
Hopefully the next date will be blessed with a period of dry weather and it can go ahead.
Whatever you do this weekend coming take care, it’s a little damp and breezy out there people.
I’m afraid the up and coming night race, the MaD dash in the Dark scheduled for the 22nd has had to be cancelled, partly due to the condition of the venue but also as we have a funeral to attend on the same day.
We are extremely sorry to have to cancel yet again but we’re hopeful that the rest of the series will make up for it and we will be adding more dates in the spring to make up for it.
Please spread the word and hopefully we’ll see you very soon.
Mean and Dirty
I’m afraid, this coming weekends race has had to be cancelled due to flooding.
It was always going to be a gamble holding events at the Gloucester Boating Lake field; The clues in the name, up to now it has been fine but it was on the cards that the area would be the victim of the flooding at some point over the winter, we just hope its just this weekend and we can resume soon.
The area does dry out extremely quickly once the waters recede, so all’s not lost.
Of course keep an eye on this website and our facebook page for up dates.
Apologies and we’ll see you very soon.
A Big happy new year to you all from the Mean and Dirty crew and role on the next round of the MaD Sunday Roast, just a week or so away now.
As you may have noticed it has rained a little and this could play havoc with our plans, but as of today, the next round is still on.
Just keep an eye on here or our Facebook page for the latest.
Have a great new years party now.

Quick note for you, put this date in your diary The MaD Sunday Roast 3 is on…..12th January. Details coming
After the first round and the threat of flooding, we were slightly concerned this event may have to have a fresh venue, but to everyone’s surprise all had stayed dry.
Round 2 of the MaD Sunday Roast opened for riders at 8am and a new track greeted all who attended.
The beauty of this venue is the never-ending choice of features the site offers, even though the site is for all intents and purposes flat, there is barely anywhere to rest as it has constant changes in elevation and lots of great opportunities to test the best yet make it fine for beginners. The whole ethos of Mean and Dirty is to offer events for everyone and make enjoying the experience high on the list of priorities, whilst hard enough for the pro’s to get a good workout. So far it seems to be working.
