2017 Hammer Sportive

Hammer Sportive

October 23 2022
Devon, South West, UK
Status: The date for the event has not yet been confirmed.

The most spectacular, challenging and rewarding early season sportive in the UK! Starting from the beautiful resort town of Salcombe, the Hammer takes in a stunning tour of the breathtaking South Hams. An incredible event in its own right, it is a perfect springboard to European hilly and mountain sportives as well as a logical stepping stone for UK events like the Dartmoor Classic.

With Spring being the one day 'classics' season, we've added a distinctly continental flavour to the feed stations, which in addition to the usual energy products, drinks, and fruit, will also offer Belgian Liege waffles. If they don't keep you going,nothing will!
