Race it or Ride it

Choose Gravel Race or Gravel Challenge

Gravel Race Category

The Battle Gravel 100 now features a timed stage Gravel Race option with podium & prizes!

Race It

The Gravel Race category (100k only) is a competitive ride featuring three timed stages around the private Battle Gravel Matterley Bowl circuit. The open hill sections of the course are non competitive neutral stages that just need to be completed within a qualifying pace. The fastest combined timed stages from qualifying riders will make the podium and prize presentation! 

Gravel Challenge Category

 If you don’t want to race, choose the Gravel Challenge Category.

Race It

The Gravel Challenge category (100, 66 or 33km) is a non competitive personal challenge. Your ride will be timed for your personal interest and finishers medals will be awarded, but there is no competition with other riders so you can concentrate on your own targets or enjoy the challenge at your own pace!

(Full details and ride rules will be published in your event information).

Bike Suitability

Which bike will be best or this ride? Battle Gravel 100 is open to any bike and any rider – but here’s our guide to which type of bike suits this course best.

Q

MTB or Gravel?

You can use either a MTB or gravel bike for any of our events; none of our rides are exclusively one or the other. Al lthat matters is that your bike is suitable for riding off road. The question of which bike you should choose is harder to answer, as it will vary from person to person and ride to ride, but we’ve tried to give yuo some guidance here. While our events ar open to any off road bike, each event may lean slightly more towards one than the other. So our MTB branded events will typically be shorter distances and may use some more rougher or more technical sections and places, while our Gravel branded events will generally be longer distances, with typically less technical surfaces involved. But the emphasis for all rides is off road – our Gravel events are not intended to be road rides with just a few bits of dirt track here and there; they are created to give you plenty of good, varied open hill riding. 

In our videos you’ll see us riding gravel bikes on most courses, regardless of whether it’s for a Gravel or MTB event, but really only because that’s our personal preference here in the Trail Break office these days. For individual riders though, that choice will vary. It will depend on your abilities and preferences; how happy you are to push the limits of where you can take a gravel bike for example, or whether you prefer to have the benefits of an MTB under you when the going gets rougher. The terrain, distance nd weather/ground conditions may make a difference too. We try and guide you as best we can – you’ll see here a guide showing a suitability rating for different kinds of bikes, plus a physical and technical severity rating for the courses, and we’re going too add that information for all events as we go into the new season. But at the end of the day, that is only a guide, and the best choice is going to be different for every rider.

Warning: This ride contains off road sections and rough surfaces. Only use road bikes that are capable of some off road. DO NOT use any bike you do not want to expose to dirt and the risk scratches or some damage. Only use a bike with strong wheels and off road capable tyres. Close fitting commute/road style mudguards are not suaitable for this ride.

Riding the Battle Gravel 100

The unique Battle Gravel course features two distinct sections; the open hill trail section in the beautiful countryside of the South Downs, east of Winchester, and the private trails in and around the spectacular Matterley Bowl where the event is based. 

The open hill section uses an entertaining variety of open public trails and lanes to passing through stunning scenery and picture postcard villages. The private Matterley Bowl loop is comprised of an excellent mix of gravel and dirt tracks around the magnificent Matterley Estate – these are trails you can’t ride at any other time of year!

Depending on which category you’ve entered, how you ride Battle Gravel may vary. The Gravel Challenge Category is just about going the distance. You’ll ride 1,2 or 3 laps of the combined circuit and enjoy the ride at your preferred pace. The finish line is your goal. Things get different in the Battle Race Category, where there is a competition and prizes to aim for. But here the trick is to ride smart, not just hard. The Battle Race is the full 100km, but the only bit that counts towards your race position, is your combined time on the private Matterley Bowl section the circuit. The open hill section is ‘neutralised’; you just have to complete it at a basic qualifying pace. So that’s where things get tactical; the secret to success in the Battle Race is to pace yourself on the open hill section to save as much energy as you can for the Matterley Bowl laps. The winner won’t be the fastest over the full 100km, it’ll be whoever gets those tactics right!

Event Logistics

On the Ride

Once you’re ready to start, report to the start / finish area with your timing chap strapped to your ankle. Listen to the short briefing and ride across the timing mat as directed. As you go around the route, you will find bright orange signs and ribbons to follow. At route divide points, you will find yellow signs showing you which way to go to follow the Full, Mid or Short routes. These should guide you around the whole route, but use your map if you think you have strayed off course or have a problem with the route navigation. There are also emergency contact numbers on the edge of your map. Ride safely at all times, and remember that you are on public rights of way and roads. This is not a race, so please ride appropriately, and be friendly and polite to other trail users you meet. At the end of the ride, pass over the timing mat once again, and hand in your timing chip. For those interested in there ride time, these will be available on the computer screen at the finish.

Entry on the Day

You can enter the event on the day, although there is a small surcharge of £3 (so pre entering is recommended). Just arrive before the end of the registration period and pay at the desk.

Registration

Go to the registration desk on your arrival. If you’ve pre-entered via the internet or posted your entry, you’ll have a timing chip on an ankle strap to collect at the desk. If you haven’t pre-entered, pay at the desk and a chip will be allocated to you. Collect your colour A4 map at registration also. Next, get yourself ready to ride.

Following the Route

Follow the orange signs and orange ribbons (you will shown samples of these at the ride briefing) regardless of which route distance you are riding. Everybody follows orange. At route divide points, you will see a set of yellow signs, with “Full Route”, “Mid Route” or “Short Route” written on them, pointing in different directions. At this point, follow the right sign for the route you are riding. Once you get beyond the route divide point, you will start following orange signs and ribbons again.

(Please note, in spite of our best efforts, signs can go missing or be tampered with during the course of the day. Make sure you pick up a copy of the route map at event registration, and carry it with you for use if needed. We also send out GPS files to all pre entries prior to the event, so if oyu want ot have the route on your phone or GPS device, sign up online now!)

Food and Drink

There will be food, water and energy mix at a feed station on the course to help you stay fuelled during the ride. Hot and cold food & drink and snacks will be available to purchase from the event centre before and after the ride. (Including our ever popular home made chilli!)

 

Rider Timings & Medals

Riders are electronically timed, with rider times displayed on a screen at the finish line. Gold, silver and bronze time bands are set as an optional ride incentive, and finishers medals are presented to reflect the time band you achieve.

PLEASE NOTE: rider timings are provided for personal interest only and time bands are an optional target that you can choose to ignore. This event is not a race. No winner is declared, and no status or prizes are awarded for ‘beating’ other riders. The ride time and completed distance for any individual rider is taken on trust and cannot be definitively verified by the organisers.
