This year Mountain Biking UK is looking for someone special. Pedigree race winners and show pony's need not apply - we want the riders who best sum up all that's good about British mountain biking.
At this summer’s biggest events, winning is no longer everything. We're after the people who battle on against mechanical diversity, those who show exceptional talent/bravery/insanity and those who simply stop and help mend punctures without a thought for their own targets.
We will have our ‘spotters’ out in force eagerly seeking out those riders who make the difference on the day and nominating them for the MBUK Spirit Awards. Each winner will be announced in the latest edition of the magazine alongside a running results table throughout the summer. Everyone who makes the table will win a year’s subscription, receive a special certificate and be in with a chance at being crowned top dog and overall MBUK Spirit winner come the year’s end.
That person will then star in an MBUK feature along with receiving a very special trophy and prize plus a days’ riding with us lot!
Your first chance to get involved with the Spirit Awards is just a week away at Round 1 of the Merida Bikes Marathon Series. One of the UK's most popular summer series gets underway at Bulith Wells on 11th-12th April and it's shaping up to be a belter!
Can you be the rider that carries the spirit of British mountain biking on their shoulders this summer?!
