Weldtite enters Mountain Mayhem

June 13, 2011

Referred to as ‘The London Marathon of mountain biking’, Mountain Mayhem attracts roughly 2,500 competitors and 12,000 spectators each year. And this year – it’s attracted Weldtite!

Launched at Trentham Gardens in 1998, Mountain Mayhem now takes place at Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire. The race consists of a 9 mile loop and it’s the largest and most prestigious 24 hour mountain biking event in the world.

The race kick-starts at 12 noon on the 18th of June and entering into the mayhem this year is our very own team: a mixture of staff and friends that are ready to go and eager to race! Training is going well and our Sales Manager, James Milnes, is team captain. James has drawn the short straw and will have to ride two laps of the circuit but he’s really looking forward to the challenge!

Our riders will be cheering on the Weldtite Endurance Team too, which includes some of the UK’s finest endurance riders. Mountain Mayhem will see one of the WXC World Racing ladies join the Endurance Team too – good luck to you all!

Our Cyclo Tools brand is the official tools sponsor for the event and we will be there to showcase our bike maintenance products and offer advice on our range. We’ll be available before and during the race in the arena. Make sure you keep an eye out for the Weldtite flags and we look forward to seeing you there!
