Only a few days now before the Ritchey TrailMasters powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport (17-19th August 2012) will kick off this weekend at Plas y Cadno Farm in Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales.
Preparations have been on overdrive and everything is set for a great (long) weekend of riding, racing, campground games and more.
The Ritchey TrailMasters will have around 220km of fantastic Welsh riding waiting for the riders and to make matters interesting there are 6 (timed) special stages spread over the weekend.
Friday will kick off with a longish ‘warm up ride’ at lunchtime followed by a long dinner break and finished off with the Exposure Lights night stage.
Saturday is a classic big day on the hills. An 85km loop will showcase the best trails and views this beautiful pocket in the heart of Wales has to offer. The day is not timed in the conventional way so that riders can take it easy and enjoy the rider rather than ‘chasing the tyre in front’. But as always a couple of ‘special’ sections will be against the clock again to establish who the real ‘TrailMasters’ are.
After enjoying an entertainment packed Saturday night the Sunday is another proper day on the hills which will feature the last two special stages of the event.
The Ritchey TrailMasters crew will look after the riders and their support crews throughout the day. Great food from the ‘Luff Bus’, kids activities and a 10km fun run on Saturday, to mention a few. A broad range of gear will be available to test from including the latest Avanti Bikes and MIO GPS units.
