MORE NEWS OF WHAT'S CHANGING AT 

MOUNTAIN MAYHEM® FOR 2019

2019 ENTRY PRICES REDUCED

16.08.18

Mountain Mayhem®, the longest running 24hr mountain bike endurance event in the world, has today announced the date for ticket sales,  Tuesday 21st August at 6pm, and details of 2019 entry prices – which have actually been reduced in most categories.

In 2019, a whole new decade of Mountain Mayhem® will begin, with new rules and a new venue, the magnificent Marston Lodge, but importantly still the same amazing, unique Mountain Mayhem® atmosphere.

The basic strategy is to ‘Keep it Simple’ by introducing a few changes:

  • Per person pricing

  • No sub categories

  • No restriction on bikes allowed

  • Race entry from age 14

How is this possible?  

“We are introducing Early Bird pricing plus an entry fee for non-riders.  Mountain Mayhem® is a very expensive event to produce. Our costs increase every year.  We no longer feel that it is fair for riders to subsidise non-riders who also use all the facilities and can enjoy everything that Mayhem has to offer – except the racing of course” said Jill Greenfield, owner and organiser of Mountain Mayhem®.  

How much will it cost you?

EARLY BIRD (AVAILABLE UNTIL 31ST DECEMBER 2018)

  • £75 for riders

  • £25 for non-riders

  • FREE non-riders under 18 accompanied by an adult

REGULAR (AVAILABLE FROM 1ST JANUARY 2019)

  • £85 for riders

  • £35 for non-riders

  • FREE non-riders under 18 accompanied by an adult

There will also be a  completely new two stage race -  6 of One/Half Dozen of the Other.  This involves racing for six hours on Saturday and six hours on Sunday giving you time to chill in between.  

 

There are two categories in the 6 of One/Half Dozen of the Other two stage race:

  • Open (teams of up to 3)

  • E-bike (teams of up to 3)

“We know there are riders out there that would love the opportunity to ride their E-bike at Mountain Mayhem.  We think the time is right to give them the chance to do just that.  We believe that the 6 of One/Half Dozen of the Other two stage race is just the ticket for a first outing at Mayhem.” said Alex McNicol, course designer.

Alex also explained about the new rules: “Essentially there are two main changes.  The first is that you can now ride from age 14. The second, and biggest change is in the type of bike permitted:  there are no restrictions. Riders need to understand that this is a mountain bike race with a course designed specifically for mountain bikes.  That said, if you want to ride a BMX we’re not going to stop you!! The one exception is E-bikes: they are only allowed in the 6 of One/Half Dozen of the Other two stage race”

Early Bird tickets going on sale on Tuesday 21st August at 6pm.  

More details will be announced over the coming weeks and months.
