Gore Bike Wear TransWales update


We've been speaking to the event organisers at the Gore Bike Wear TransWales and can confirm there are a number of places still available, including in the women's pairs category.


The 2010 course is a completely new affair, heading from Builth Wells all the way to the English border, before making its way, via the Welsh coast, back to Builth. With a distance of over 500km and climbing of over 15,000 meters, this event is the perfect opportunity for the riders to test themselves against the elements, as well as to discover the fantastic riding central Wales has to offer.





The 2010 event will have five special stages which are run within the linking stages, except the traditional night stage (sponsored by EXPOSURE LIGHTS) and the final stage, which will take place on the last day back in Builth Wells. There are two new special stages for 2010, in the form of a hill climb and a descent, to allow the specialists to shine, as well as giving more people the chance to win one of the many prizes provided by title sponsor Gore Bike Wear. The details of each stage, including stage length, amount of climbing and descending, special stages and predicted riding time is available on the TransWales website www.mtbtransuk.co.uk        


The Gore Bike Wear TransWales 2010 is not just about riding your bike fast and long. It is also about making new friends whilst discussing the day’s events over dinner, riding through amazing countryside in one of the most picturesque parts of Wales, pushing your own limits, and simply about being part of something special.


The guidebook for the Gore Bike Wear TransWales, powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport, is now finished and on its way to the subscribers.
