Legends Cross Country

MBUK Legends XC Race is on Saturday the 16th of June 2018.

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 triple chainrings!

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, especially for that last lap.

The following have all confirmed their attendance, more are to be added!
