Kenda to be official tyre sponsor of Singletrack Sleepless in the Saddle 2012

13 July 2012

Kenda will be the official tyre sponsor of Sleepless in the Saddle, the 24 hour cross country endurance race.

Kenda will be dishing out prizes on the podium to the winners of each of the 15 categories, with the prize pool worth over 2k. The brand will have a strong presence at the event, displaying the latest tyres available in the UK, including the eagerly awaited Happy Medium, Nextcavator and H Factor. Lake, Limar, Jagwire, One23, G-Form and Knog will also be on display in the Todays Cyclist tent.

The Happy Medium is a universal design for all types of riding and racing, with a fast rolling centre and aggressive outside edge for cornering assurance. The Nexcavator is for the rider that prefers a more open tread pattern, which will cut into the terrain and hold the tyre in place as you arc through a turn. The H-Factor is the perfect all-mountain tyre, aggressive for spirited riding and sleek enough to be fast. The RRP’s on these new tyres start from £32.99.

As usual, Kenda will offer a free inner-tube replacement service for riders who are unlucky enough to get a puncture during the race. All they have to do is come to the Todays Cyclist tent with their race number and we will replace their damaged tube for a brand new Kenda one.

If you’re not racing you still have the opportunity to win Kenda prizes with the Kenda Prize Plunge. For £1.00 you can plunge your hand in and see what you get, it could be a pair of tyres if you’re lucky or one of our smaller Kenda prizes.

Sleepless in the Saddle is to be held at Catton Park between Friday the 3rd August and Sunday the 5th August and spectators are welcome. The race starts at midday on Saturday.
