Posted Wednesday 3rd April 2013 –
Southern Sportive’s road season begins this weekend with the Joker from Salisbury Race Course. This is a unique post April Fools day sportive, featuring a variety of speciual challenges including the cobbled 1:4 Gold Hill in Shaftesbury (the hill made famous by the old Hovis adverts). Riders get full sportive support and feed stations, a top quality free event t shirt, and souvenir playing cards for each challenge they complete. You can still enter for the Joker; advance entry is open until midnight on Thursday (4th April). Entry on the day will be available as well – see southernsportive.com for details.
On April 21st, Southern Sportive return to Princes Risborough for their ever popular St George’s Sportive. The event has run since 2007 and has grown in popularity each year, this year having an 800 rider cap on bookings. And as it has in the last six years, it looks like the St George will sell out again in 2013, so don’t leave it late to book. The organisers have advised that they don’t expect on the day entry to be available at the event, and entries may be limited in the final weeks of booking.
