Mountain Mayhem 2017

This weekend sees the return of the awesome 24 hour endurance MTB race, Mountain Mayhem.
As usual, our team will be there with the usual outstanding custom cycling kit offers and retail products at fantastic prices.
Taking place at Gatcombe Park in Stroud, Gloucestershire, the Go Outdoors Mountain Mayhem event has been held annually since 1998. There are nine levels of competition – from individual female and male categories to teams of ten & sport categories , which there’s also a kids event (called the Cuda Mini Mayhem) for those under the age of 15.
We wanted to take you through a typical weekend at the event, and what you should expect if you were to take part in Mountain Mayhem, or simply just to spectate.
On Friday morning, the campsite opens, and hundreds are expecting to begin settling down for the weekend. After registering for the event, it’s all about settling down and relaxing until the evening, when the course is opened for inspection. An evening of entertainment is then put on for you to enjoy!
Saturday morning sees the registration windows re-open. If your child is taking part in the Cuda Mini Mayhem, make sure you get the registration complete by 8:30am as the event begins at 9:00am.
11:00am on Saturday is when the nerves begin to set in and the adrenaline begins to pump, as the riders briefing takes place in the main arena (right by our stand). 45 minutes later, riders take position at the start line ready for the Le Mans-style start, where they must first run to their bike to get underway at midday!
24 hours of endurance racing ensues, with the sun setting around 9:30pm. At 4:49am, the sun rises, just shy of 16 hours into the event. At 12pm, the checkered flag comes out. All riders finish the lap their on, before retreating for some well-earned cheers from the crowd. At 2pm, prize presentations take place for all categories, marking the end of another weekend of Mountain Mayhem.
How’s that for a quick summary!
After a growing reputation for wet events, it looks likely that this year will be different. The BBC is currently reporting that the weather across the weekend will be between 24°C & 27°C. In other words, if you’re one of the thousands expected to compete, make sure you pack plenty of sun protection. If you’re spectating, even more so!
We’ll be there all weekend, with the Scimitar team ready to answer all questions relating to custom MTB kit for teams. We’ll also have a range of jerseys on sale from the Scimitar Shop range, including our best selling Mr Grumpy & Little Miss Chatterbox tops from the Mr Men & Little Miss range.
You’ll find us by the Dogs Trust charity tent, not too far from the main marquee.
We hope to see you there!
