Mountain Mayhem back for 12th year

The Mountain Mayhem will return to Herefordshire in the United Kingdom for its twelfth year this June. Not for the faint-hearted, the 24-hour race will take over the grounds of Eastnor Castle, Deer Park in Ledbury, where 2,500 will compete on a nine-mile circuit. It will be part of a weekend of events that takes place from June 19 to 21, kicking off with the Dirt Demo, the largest mountain bike demo in the country.

"Since its beginning back in 1998, the event has grown and developed over the years to become the biggest 24-hour mountain bike endurance event worldwide. This year expect surprises, excitement and one of the best Mountain Mayhems to date," siad Patrick Adams of Pacific Edge Events, organizers of the race.
