The first Kona Mash-Up powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport will take place on 12 June in Glyncorrwg, South Wales followed by a round in Glentress, Scotland on 24 July and then back to Glyncorrwg again on 4 December for the series finale.
At the Glyncorrwg events, each rider can enter either the Enduro or Technical category. Enduro riders will tackle around 40km of downhill and cross-country trails, with five timed sections. Technical entrants will be timed on only three sections of the course, so they can push up the climbs if necessary.
At the Glentress event, there’s only one category which will include a selection of six timed downhill and flowy singletrack sections along with a timed climb (which won’t be included in the overall timing, which will determine final positions). Riders will also have the chance to improve on each section if they want to re-ride it.
Prizes are up for grabs for the overall winner as well as for stage wins. Entry for the three events is open now, so go to the entry form page on the Kona Mash-Up website to secure your place.
