Welcome to the 14th Ritchey Bristol Bikefest - one of the UKs longest standing mountain bike endurance races. Once again held at the famous all weather fast flowing singletrack course in Ashton Court.
On the 13th June the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Heritage Volkswagen will return to the trails of Ashton Court, Bristol for the 14th issue of the Fest. What started as a ‘Sunday addition’ to the Southern XC series more than a decade ago has turned into one of the major mountain bike events in the country.
What’s new in 2015?
The Bikefest (www.bike-fest.com) will return with the proven and much loved concept of 12 hour of solo, pairs or teams relay racing but for 2015 we are bringing the 6 hour and 3 hour novice event (who used to run on the Sunday) into the Saturday schedule.
The 12 hour event will as usual be started at 9am and run all the way to 9pm while the 6hour event will start at 3pm and the 3hour event will get going at 6pm – all to minimise start loop clog ups and to make those last few laps more exciting for everyone.
Entry to the Ritchey Bristol Bikefest powered by Heritage Volkswagen will open on the 1st February with the over all numbers being limited (to accommodate the 6 and 3hour event) and only 150 solo sports being available across the three distances. With the solo and 12 hour places in particular selling out quickly better mark the day and get your entry in early. (more…)Get yourself in shape for the event with E3coach
