Hotbox Events and Hotbox Studios is sponsoring an Exeter based mountain bike team! Team Flamingo is currently in training for what will be their biggest cycling challenge ever. Amy, Laura, Fi, and Carrie Burgess (Carrie you may remember from the Reading Festival) will be entering the Nightrider12 event at Plymouth's Newnham Park on April 28th 2007. The girls will be raising money for the Force Cancer Charity which works in Exeter to support anyone affected with Cancer. Further details on the Force Cancer Charity can be found at www.forcecancercharity.co.uk
The event requires the team to cycle non-stop from 8pm to 8am over a course of 12km including 3 of Newnham's finest singletrack sections, 2 challenging climbs, a river crossing. Newnham has long been a host to major events with 5 World Cups, multiple National events and the Newnham 90 all helping to keep Newnham established as one of the countries most popular venues. If you would like to join us at Newnham Park there is plenty of room for camping within a picturesque wooded valley that will act as the event centre with refreshments on offer throughout the event.
