Organised by Team JMC’s very own Jason Miles, Hit the North is a 2 hour offroad cycle race based at Philips Park, almost next door to the JMC IT offices. Over 300 riders have signed up for the February 2012 event, pitting themselves against the unforgiving 4 mile course which includes steep climbs, tricky downhills and unrideable sections.

Profits from the race are donated to local charities and Hit the North has been supported by Team JMC since the very beginning, back in 2008.

This year, a Team JMC ‘squad’ of 12 riders has entered.
