As a mountain biker, Mountain Mayhem has become the first date in my calendar every year. It’s been the reason to ride when the weather is bleak and has seemed to dominate my cycling the past 4/5 years or so.
This year will be my 5th, riding in a team of 4, and with it being just over a week away the nerves are starting to kick in. The Yeti (subject of a future post) is in for a service, the Ti hardtail (another future post) is all fettled, tent all ready and lists of kit/food all reviewed and tweaked.
It’s the original and largest 24hr race in the world and has a carnival atmosphere with around 2500 racers plus friends/family/ support crew making it a massive event.
This year sees Wiggle taking over from Original Source as the headline sponsor so it’ll interesting to see what freebies we get this year. The wet weather means we are likely to have a muddy race.
I’ll post a review when we’re done so fingers crossed for a decent race.
