The Bristol Oktoberfest is another one of our big race events. Last year we entered 28 riders as solo riders, pairs, teams of 3 and teams of 4. Everyone is encouraged to get involved – it’s a lot of fun even if you doubt your race credentials.
If you already have a team then it would be great if you enter as an MBSwindon team. If you haven’t got a team then contact us with your preferences (solo, pair, team, race/for fun) and we’ll work on allocating teams.
Five days of guided riding plus a 2 day lift pass as part of the price. The start price is £525 (compare with list price of £555 with extra for lift pass). If we have 1o or more then the price drops to £500, 15 means £475, and 20 means £450. The guided days are Sun, Mon, Tue and then Thurs and Fri.
The self guided option is £350 and includes a 6 day bike pass.
All options can convert to half board for £75 extra (list price £115). Airport transfers from Barcelona are approximately £40.
To book or express an interest then please email tom at mbswindon co uk or post on the event Facebook page.
Deposit of £70 for self guided and £105 for guided. The remaining amount will be calculated later based on your options and the group size.
The Bontrager Twentyfour12 is an endurance mountain bike race around an off-road course at Newnham Park near Plymouth. There’s 24 and 12 hour races starting at midday plus a solo only 12 hour race from midnight (the torch bearer).
The venue is perhaps England’s finest with beautiful scenery, a flat arena/camping area complimented by a course that has been host to five rounds of the Cross Country World Cup in the 1990s and continues to have a superb reputation for variety and fun riding.
You can enter via the XCRacer website. If you already have a team then it would be great if you enter as an MBSwindon team. If you haven’t got a team then contact us with your preferences (solo, pair, team, race/for fun) and we’ll work on allocating teams.
