How does three days of testing yourself in the saddle with rocky descents, huge climbs and Welsh forest riding sound? Well it’s going to exceed all expectations, so clear some space in your summer diary for the Black Mountains 3 Day.
Black Mountains 3 Day is a 3 day mountain bike stage endurance event running from 30 July – 1 August 2010. Set in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park of South Wales, it will be a tough but rewarding ride through unforgiving terrains and tough technical trails.
The race covers 280km over the three days with more than 8,000m of climbing. Expect a mix of singletrack, jeep track, fireroad, natural tracks and a tiny bit of farm road to link sections together. It’s challenging in the dry, and if it’s wet, about four times tougher! The route will be fully marshalled and signed, and GPS routes will be available. Torq will be manning the feedstations to keep you topped up.
To reward all your hard work during the day everything else is going to be as comfortable as possible. The Black Mountains 3 Day is a fully serviced event providing hot showers, massages, tailored nutrition and lovely tented villages to rest your exhausted body. There’ll also be mechanics and bike wash facilities on hand so your bike’s as well cared for as you.
Brecon Beacons National Park is renowned for its incredible scenery and amazing sense of remoteness and it’s popular with walkers and riders. Over the 3 days you’ll be experiencing all the best aspects of riding in the National Park, and will be passing through a number of friendly local communities.
So get involved with this incredible experience, whether you are riding alone or with a buddy and whether you are a seasoned stage racer or a first timer. We’ve also got packages for family and friends to come along and support the riders, so you don’t have to suffer alone.
