Entries for Mountain Mayhem open in February.

The 2009 Mountain Mayhem 24-hour mountain bike endurance event is taking place from 19-21 June at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Herefordshire, UK.


The race, sponsored by Original Source, will see 2,500 riders competing on a nine-mile circuit over 24 hours. Competitors of all abilities are invited to enter on their own, or as part of a four, five or ten-person team.

Patrick Adams of Pacific Edge Events, owners and organisers of Mountain Mayhem, said: “Since its beginning back in 1998, the event has grown and developed over the years to become the biggest 24-hour mountain bike endurance event worldwide. This year, expect surprises, excitement and one of the best Mountain Mayhems to date.”

Entry costs £200 for teams of four-five riders, £265 for teams of 10, or £65 for soloist entry. The fee includes a goody bag of freebies on the day and a medal for finishing. Camping and spectator entry at the event is free. 

Entry forms for the event can be downloaded from www.osmountainmayhem.co.uk from midnight on 28 February.


 The 24-hour race is part of a weekend of events, kicking off with the Dirt Demo, the largest mountain bike demo in the country, which gives visitors the chance to test ride the latest equipment from top bike manufacturers.
