Top Riders in the area on Saturday helping with charity C2C Challenge

Bradley Smith - Moto 2 - 2011This weekend a team form Merit Merrell Technology will be undertaking the “Coast 2 Coast Challenge”.

Starting in Workington, Cumbria on Thursday 19th April they will be travelling 140 miles in three days, finishing at Tynemouth, Tyne & Wear on Saturday 21st April.

Over the three days the route will take them along Main Roads (4%), Minor Roads (50%), Cyclepaths / Off-Road (46%) and will include some very hilly climbs, the highest point being 609 metres above Sea Level.

At first  they wanted to do this “just for the hell of it” but soon realised that  they would be using up a lot of energy for nothing more than personal satisfaction and bragging rights.

Therefore, they decided to take on the challenge as a “Charity Event”, so that their efforts can raise money for some very worthwhile causes.

Merit Merrell Technology is very lucky to have close links with the Biking Community and are delighted to announce that Bradley Smith, Brent Nichol, Taylor MacKenzie and Niall MacKenzie will be joining them for the last day of the “C2C Challenge”.

Bradley is competing for the 2nd year in the Moto2 Class before graduating to MotoGP next season on a Yamaha. Taylor competed on the world stage last year in the 125cc Class and will be competing in the British Supersport Championship this season.
Niall MacKenzie is Taylor’s father and is the only person to have won the British Superbike Championship 3 years in succession after competing for most of his career on Factory 500cc bikes in the World Championship. .
