The Hunt: a first fixie race coming to London's Hillingon

You think you've seen road rash? The May Bank Holiday means track bikes at West London's roadie mecca

by nick_rearden   February 12, 2012  


Early heads-up fixie fans for a UK-first criterium-style but fixed-gear race called The Hunt at West London's Hillingdon circuit on Sunday 6th May 2012.

No registration site details yet at which point it will appear on the What's On, meanwhile early information stands at:

One Race | 45 Minutes + 5 Laps | Brakeless Fixed Gear Only
Prizes to be won, including frames, entry into the next Red Hook Race and cash.
Racer registration date TBC | 65 Racers maximum | £20 Entry

Oh yes, and we'll be there too supporting the event… some of us might even be racing, look out for a jersey strategically placed in the pack in upcoming versions of the poster.

Title sponsors are Toyko Fixed and Chipotle so you can be sure there will be prizes in fine Japanese track hardware and South-Western foodstuff. And we don't mean from Taunton.

Can't help feeling he'll more likely be wearing a Rapha, Morvelo, Tokyo Fixed, or even one seeing as they're all sponsoring the event… maybe he'll change jersey each lap Wink

I can barely manage my single speed with breaks and free wheel... this will be tough for the riders.

Well if it's broken you should get it fixed
