Mountain biking doesn’t get much mainstream television coverage in the UK, but this year’s Bontrager Twentyfour 12 will be shown on BBC1’s Countryfile programme on Sunday November 4th at 11am.
Countryfile presenter Adam Henson raced his Trek Fuel EX as part of Keith Bontrager’s team, and managed three laps, all around an hour. Incidentally, Adam was on two wheels again in last Sunday’s Countyfile, where he was sampling the delights of the Camel Trail in Cornwall.
Next year’s Twentyfour12 will be held on July 26/27th at a new venue – more news on this soon. Entries for 2008 will be available on December 1st.
