Win a GO3 Camera by Insta360 this issue in our FREE subscriber prize draw.
80 riders, 23 stages, over 100km of distance and over 4000m of climbing. Great food and drink, stunning scenery, uplifts for the biggest climbs, plenty of social, plenty of fun, and plenty of good times with good friends both old and new.
Tea stops, dinner parties, lumberjack shirts and BBQ’s! THE MERIDA EX, presented by Shimano is back … and boy, oh boy it is it something special!
Day 1 kicked off with a gentle start but ended with a real bang. First, that famous Ex Enduro breakfast, a bit of Yoga and then onto the trails for midday. Then a few stages in the daylight and on to the Exposure USE Night Stages.
Exposure brought the lights and our 80 riders took on 3 stages, starting in the twighlight and charging on into the pitch black… lucky they had those lights!
We toasted a big first day with plenty of Bristol Beer Factory and a BBQ down on the local farm. WHAT A DAY!
