MTB Stage Race
“It was the first time this epic event was held and it truly was epic. We trained for six months for this event. Many raced it…we survived it!
The scenery was breath-taking and the mountains we climbed energy-sapping. Our longest day was 10.5 hours on the bike. The organisation was amazing. We moved from village to village camping in tents set up for us. The camaraderie was heart-warming. We made long-lasting friends.
There were over 300 competitors. It took us 46 hours in total to complete the seven days. It was the most incredible adventure where we had to dig deep to find that extra bit of energy to complete the day and then again do the same the next day. The challenge was worthwhile and the experience amazing.
Thank you to all who have encouraged us and supported us on this journey.
