The #tmc crew rolled out to SP9 7TE for the annual "Hooper Hooner" on Sunday 19th November. Ready to take on the 'Hooper Struve" on a muddy & boggy winter morning!
"Hooper Struve is the main race line offering a number of technical challenges including flat corners rock gardens drops and doubles, this trail does require a higher level of ability to safely negotiate to the end of the line. Home of the Hooper Hooner this trail is most representative of what is expected of downhill and offers a number of option lines as you descend down through Mini Morzine and off the coffin drop." - Tidworth Freeride Course write up.
The Hooper Struve is graded at "Large & Extreme". Unavoidable, non-rollable features - suitable ONLY for EXPERT riders !!
As always the #tmc pit area & onsite store arrived early Sunday morning to set up, ready for the riders and spectators alike! The pit area houses space for the riders to chill and relax in-between practice & racing runs. Whilst the Shop area brings all the spares and accessories event attendants would / could want! The Hooper Hooner even saw a secondary pitch from our store housing and displaying some of the top mountain/DH/Enduro bikes our brands have to offer!
THE TEAM RACING ///
"It's great to come back to what we call our home turf, having most of the team here racing the TMC jersey and competing for the win is what we love! We've been active in supporting the Hooper Hooner & the Tidworth Freeride bike park, over the last few years & seeing it rise into such a great event is awesome." - Dave Webb TMC Manager
