New Mini TransWales event



So, for everybody who can’t find the time for a full 7 day stage event, or is watching the pennies, here's the 3 or 4 day version of the only UK mountain bike stage event. You can  join the GORE BIKE WEAR Mini TransWales from 14th to 18th August or from 18th to 21st August. You get to ride the same trails/courses as everybody else and get the same treatment with regards to event holdall, finishing jersey, food, camping, facilities only difference being is that you are only riding for 3 or 4 days. The categories are the same as for the 7 day event and riders can enter as pairs or solos. You do get taken back to your car when your riding days are over, hopefully in a plush Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport if you're lucky!
