SnowQuake will be broadcast at on ITV4, Wednesday February 7 at 8pm.
Start 2018 in the right way!
We are excited to announce that SnowQuake will return for its third edition on Wednesday 17th January at the Ice Rosa Ring in Riva Valdobbia near Milan, Italy.
We are taking things up a level, quite literally, trading dirt for snow and ice, ovals for corners and some serious elevation changes. All against the stunning backdrop of the snow-capped Alps.
So shake off those post-Christmas blues by riding in one of our 3 race classes; Inappropriate road bike, Vintage and SnowPro, all set within the winter wonderland of the Ice Rosa Ring.
Race entries are filling up quickly so get in touch by entering your details on the form below. Race entry is €65 and includes a rider +1 entry to the Deus Cafe After-Party in Milan. Riders will also need race day insurance available on the day at signing on.
Friends and family are welcome to brave the cold and cheer on the riders, but it will be bitter so both riders and supporters will need to dust off their faux fur coats and wooly hats.
Stay tuned... more news to follow!

The good people who have organised and run the DirtQuake campsite for the last few years are taking bookings for this year's event.
Neither Sideburn nor North One TV run the camping, so we're very pleased that the DQ Trailer Trash team step up and put this great service on for the racers and spectators.
We're told, 'Campsite opens noon on Friday 7th July 2017 and will close Noon on Monday 10th 2017. It is 100 metres from the stadium.
'Cost is £13.50 /€16.00 per person per night. Payable by PAYPAL only. Under 12s free. Well behaved dogs welcome.'
You must book in advance and early if you want to guarantee your place. The organisers are expecting it to sell out. Don't turn up on the day without booking in advance and expect to camp.
To book, email email@example.com
North One Television is pleased to confirm it is the new promoter and owner of the DirtQuake brand and event.
DirtQuake is an alternative motorcycling festival that encourages a diverse blend of bike fans, dirt racers, millennials, grease monkeys, celebrities, custom shop designers, speed freaks and weekend warriors to celebrate their shared love of motorbikes.
Irreverent racing is at the heart of DirtQuake. The action takes place on high-adrenaline, loose-surface oval circuits without the hassle, rules and costs usually associated with motorsport. Dirt Quake is inclusive - giving riders, enthusiasts and even pro-racers a unique chance to take on all-comers.
North One plans to hold races in the UK, Europe and US in 2017/18 on mud, snow and sand, allowing more bike fans than ever before to take part live and watch the show on television.
With an ITV television deal already in place and multiple sponsors coming on-board, the company plans to grow DirtQuake globally building out numerous events around the world in the coming years.
The next DirtQuake - at King’s Lynn in Norfolk on July 7th, 8th and 9th 2017 - will be the first event that receives television coverage, with a one-hour special planned for ITV4 at 8pm on Wednesday 12 July. It will also be super-sized compared with previous years, with the event held over a weekend rather than on a single day.
Well-known names in motorcycling, particularly Guy Martin, have raced at DirtQuake every year and he will return in July, along with the likes Carl Fogarty and Neil Hodgson.
Commenting on the acquisition, Neil Duncanson, CEO North One Television, said: “Guy Martin introduced us to DirtQuake a few years ago and we’ve been watching the event grow with interest. What Gary Inman has created is a micro-festival that celebrates our collective love of motorbikes. We don’t want to change the DNA of the event but we certainly want to build on it. The UK DirtQuake only happens once a year in Norfolk, and we think more people around the world will welcome an event like this. We’re in the business of building an audience, both live and on television, and are making a major investment in DirtQuake to make that happens. I’m very confident the event will be rewarding for anyone who loves bikes.”
Gary Inman, founder of DirtQuake said: “I’m very pleased that a business with the track record has recognised what’s great about DirtQuake and am confident they are the right people to take it to the next level. We have had five amazing years growing this event from nothing, primarily for fun, and I’m very proud of what it’s become and will go on to. I’ll be staying on as a creative consultant to ensure DirtQuake continues to grow successfully.”
