The invites have gone out to those that paved the way for modern day mountain biking. These riders pushed the limits back in the day when cantilever brakes where the norm, suspension in some cases hadn’t even been invented let alone disk brakes. They showed us what could be achieved with narrow bars, long stems and 48t chain rings!
So it’s time to show your respect and come and cheer them on as some of them are now in their 50’s and will need help getting back up the hill.
The event will take place on Sunday the 17th of June 2018 with each rider competing in two race runs, with the fastest time counting for their overall position. Practice will start at 09:00 with the first race runs at 11:00. Last rider down should be around 16:00 with podiums straight afterwards.
