Oktoberfest – 10th October 2015
October 10, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm
2015 Halo Oktoberfest.
Autumn 2015 - Ashton Court is once again host to the fifth Oktoberfest. The date for this one day spectacle is the 10th October 2015.
Following the success and the positive feedback if the last few years the Oktoberfest returns to the all weather course in Ashton Court. Properly tested since its opening 2 years ago the course gets better and better and keeps on putting lots of smiles on rider’s faces.
Besides the racing action we will also have a great musical line-up, with live DJs running from early evening until late into the night on Friday and Saturday. On top of that we will also have a broad selection of the latest bikes and kit, which will be available for testing on the day.
The concept of the event is similar to the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest but reduced in hours due to the shorter daylight hours. So we will be running an 8 hour event and mixed in with that we will have two 4 hour events. This should give everybody lots of options to bring the season to a well-deserved yet fun packed end. It is also just a one-day event so that we can all concentrate on the riding followed by a well-deserved finishing party.
All events can be ridden as solo entries, pairs or teams of 3 - 4 riders.
Registration opening times:
Friday: 5.00pm - 8.00pm
Saturday: 7.00am - 8.15am (and again after the race has been started)
