Audlem CC at Exmoor Explorer

7 08 2014

The annual pilgrimage to the south west to take part in the Exmoor Explorer Mountain Bike Challenge – officially not a race but when it’s a mass start with a time at the end – that’s a race!!Schurter-Wins-Pietermaritzburg_XC-World-Cup-650B-1
32 miles this year with three loops all radiating from the HQ at Minehead Rugby Club. 400+ riders faced 1500+ metres of climbing through the stunning National Park scenery. Sadly no time to enjoy the views.
Last time I took part resulted in a hospital visit following a major off. This year went without incident finishing in just over 3 hrs 30 and 55th overall – reasonably happy as this is not an age categorised event
The SCOTT SCALE 710 carbon hardtail was a pleasure to ride and got me round without any problems 

Next events – the SCOTT MTB MARATHON at Ruthin in September and then the Dusk ‘til Dawn in Thetford Forest in October
(That’s not me in the photo it’s Nino Schurter – 2014 World Cup XCO Champion, rider of the SCOTT SCALE and also rides with ORICA GREENEDGE)
