The final itinerary is subject to change at the organiser’s discretion / chance-happening of stumbling across even more amazing, lift-accessed single-track.
The standard entry package includes camp accommodation, catering, and logistical support such that all entrants can focus 100% on your riding, and on an equal footing to all other competitors.
Reduced-Price, self-supported entires are also available on a limited basis (see below for details).
Please be fully aware of the high level of technical ability, self-sufficiency, and general mountain awareness that is required to safely participate in this event. If you are in any way unsure, we strongly advise firstly trying a week’s guided holiday with sister operation trailAddiction to sample the terrain and environment, before making your decision to participate.
