Found it. Usually unbelievable bargains to be had on shoes, tyres, clothing, wheels, especially if you are 1st through the door. Some pretty good prices on bikes and other stuff. All Trek and Bontrager brand stuff. Some is production samples, some is press demo kit, some is new old stock.
Plenty of parking outside. Cash and cards accepted. Usually free tea, coffee, biscuits.

Whoops - accidentally bought a new (ex-display) bike - Trek Crockett 9 Disc CX bike with Ultegra Di2 in my size for 500 incl. factory warranty etc. Typical actual discounted retail price in the shops seems to be 1850 so couldn't resist. Hopefully can sell off some old bits and a couple of clunker bikes this weekend to cover it and clear the garage space.
New tyres this year were 2.50, which is extortionate considering they have been 1 each for the last couple of years, but just had to bite the bullet and get a load anyway.
Huge quantities of new cycling shoes there today - many priced at 10 (RRP 100ish) and 25 (RRP 170ish) but with extra 30% off at the till.
Same time next year hopefully - I'll let you know.

Blimey, I didn't realise stuff was so cheap! Looks like it's worth the trip then.

Did you get in early for session 1 or do they replenish between the sessions?

Definitely one for the calendar.

No replenishment as far as I am aware - all out at the start. Not sure what time the earliest person got there, but I arrived about 7.20 and there were maybe 25 people in front of me.

I will look out for it again next year and try and get a bit more notice.
