The second Garmin MTB Day took place in Coed-y-Brenin, North Wales at the weekend and it was Adrian Rhodes-Patterson who posted the fastest time and took the win.
Completing the orienteering course in one hour three minutes, Adrian bagged himself a Commencal Super 4.1 bike worth £2,499, a choice of Garmin GPS units and a place in the GarminAcademy – a weekend riding with UK downhill legend Steve Peat.
He said: “I felt I’d ridden well but messed up the first checkpoint, of all things. I just rode straight past it – too busy enjoying the singletrack and not paying attention to the Garmin on the first section!
“The Garmin is an impressive piece of kit and very easy to use, even on the move and in the rain. I still can’t believe I’ve won a £2,500 bike and will get to find out how good top-of-the-range really is!
“As for riding with Steve Peat, I just hope I can keep up on the climbs and someone lends me some body armour for the downhills so I have a chance of surviving the weekend while learning from the best!”
There are two more Garmin MTB Days, at Glentress in Scotland (26 July) and Queen Elizabeth Park in Hampshire (16 August). You don’t have to do each one, but the more you do, the greater your chances of winning. Want to know more? Head over to bikeradar.com/garmin for details of the competition.
