All the events will be double events again in 2012 with either a night marathon or a road sportive being run on the Saturday, followed by the MTB marathon on Sunday. The road sportives will have two distances to choose from and the MTB Marathon four.


The only exception to this rule and a try out for 2012 is the Abergavenny (location details to be confirmed) round in August, which will have the MTB Marathon on Saturday followed by the road sportive on Sunday. The Saturday evening will see a live band, bar on site and a BBQ for the riders and spectators. The hope is that pretty much everybody will stay over and enjoy the weekend.  


The website will be updated with all the new features and the ever so important entry facilities by the end of December at the latest so visit  for more information.
