The organisers of the Benromach Three Tens Series have announced the introduction of a Le Mans style start for 2010.
The start will see riders off on foot and sprinting 100 yards to pick up their bikes before setting off on the 9 mile course used for the 10-hour event. This new starting format has been designed to ease congestion, separate the field and add a touch of mayhem.
The second event in the series, 10 At Kirroughtree, takes place on 10 July at Galloway Forest Park. The venue is famous for its fast flowing singletrack and superb mountain bike trails proved its reputation in the first event in 2007 and in 2009 the course was even better as No Fuss had been working with Forestry Commission to build some new natural sections of trail.
Participants can compete as a solo or in relay teams of two, three or four. The race is an endurance format with teams and individuals competing to see who can complete the most laps in the 10 hours.
