Record entries for No Fuss endurance series

With less than two months to go until 10 Under The Ben, the first event in the Scottish Three Tens Series of endurance cross country events, Fort William-based No Fuss Events said it expected record entries.

"We are delighted to announce that over 800 people had registered for the 2008 Three Tens Series so far. This is a 10% rise on 2007 figures at this stage," said Frazer Coupland of No Fuss Events. "We are optimistic that this year's 10 Under The Ben will attract in excess of 800 riders with Kirroughtree and Moray expected to top 500 riders."

The three events – 10 Under The Ben, 10 More In Moray and 10 At Kirroughtree – are run with participants riding for ten hours solo or in relay teams of two, three or four.

In its fourth year, the 10 Under The Ben, the original 10-hour mountain bike festival of fun and the flagship of the series, will be staged on May 31, a week before the worlds best riders take on some of the same trails in Fort William at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup.

The course will run on trails within Forestry Commission Scotland's Leanachan Forest just outside Fort William. Incorporating sections of the UCI World Championships cross country course, the route will include some sections of singletrack and fire roads, together with some new natural sections, all in the shadow of the north face of Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain.
