A brand new Pairs category

A brand new Pairs category is to be added to the 18th annual Mountain Mayhem event to be held at Gatcombe Park, home of The Princess Royal, Princess Anne it was announced today.

“There has never been a Pairs category at Mountain Mayhem before. We have been asked many times over the years and now we have finally decided yes, why not? So Pairs it is!” In fact it was a conversation with the chaps at Singletrack, official media sponsors of Mountain Mayhem that swung it in the end. “Those Singletrack boys can be very persuasive…!” said Patrick Adams, creator of Mountain Mayhem and 24hr racing in the UK. “It is easy to get stuck in your ways. Now we are 18 we thought it was time for a few changes.”

Yesterday another new category was announced, a ‘race within a race’, the Halo 24hr Fat Bike Challenge, the first ever 24hr Fat Bike race.

More announcements are due over the next few days.

New Race Within a Race at Mountain Mayhem

Halo Fat Bike 24hr Challenge

This could be the start of something lovely – a low pressure, 24 hour race exclusively for fat bikes. The Halo 24hr Fat Bike Challenge is for fat tyres only, nothing narrower than 3.5” allowed!

Matt Askham from Halo told us: “We’re very excited to be part of this year’s Mountain Mayhem event and especially pleased to sponsor the Fat Bike Challenge. The 9km course is a mixture of free-draining climbs and descents, twisty woodland and open parkland. It’s a fantastic venue where you can enjoy camping beside parts of the course, hot showers, ample parking and the famously renowned Mountain Mayhem hospitality.”

Patrick Adams from Pacific Edge Events, owners and organisers of Mountain Mayhem said: “As far as we are aware, this is the first time ever that the UK has staged a 24hr Fat Bike event. With no limit on entry numbers, we’re looking forwards to seeing solo riders and teams of four (mixed as you please) battle it out day and night, pedalling hard for a place on the podium with trophies and Halo prizes at stake. We are delighted to welcome our Fat Bike friends to Mountain Mayhem.”

What are you waiting for – you’ll be grinning like a fool all weekend so get signed up!

We’ll have fat bikes and accessories on show for those who haven’t yet seen the light.
