Some new hazards have been plotted by the Clerk of the Course and the setting out teams to keep riders on their toes.
Trials Guru’s John Moffat will be on hand to provide some start field commentary and also at the finish to interview riders as they catch their breath after hauling up the finish field on Park Top Farm land.
