Etape Cymru closing date extended

Discounted entry still offered to BikeRadar readers

Geraint Thomas set a Horseshoe Pass time of 14mins 22 secs. Can you overhaul the Welshman's benchmark?

The closing date for the Etape Cymru, the first closed road sportive to be held in Wales, has been extended to 30 September.


Organisers have also confirmed the event will incorporate a timed hill climb competition of the Horseshoe Pass, with the quickest male and female in each of four age categories- Under 30s, 30-40, 41-50 and over 50- winning a Mavic Plasma SLR helmet. Mavic, who will be providing mechanical support on the day, will also give away- at random- a pair of their R-Sys wheels, worth £1,330.


Over 1,600 riders are registered to ride in the 100 mile route on 9 October. BikeRadar readers can still get a 10 percent discount on the £65 entry fee using the code BIKERADAR01 at checkout. To sign up, visit the official website.
