Mike from the CRC MTB Marathon Series 2012 powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport (and breathe) has just sent us word that they’ve released a guidebook containing a load of features, information and tips on kit and how to get the most from each round. Release is below:
“Every year since our humble beginnings in 2000 we have tried to create exciting mountain bike marathons and 2012 is looking to be another great year for the UK mountain bike marathon scene.
Besides adding an extra sportive to the Vitus Road Sportives powered by CycleOps Power, which brings the series up to four events in three different countries, adding the new location of Abergavenny to the CRC MTB Marathon Series powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport, running the UK Marathon Champs in Selkirk and tackling our first ever triple event at the series finale in Ruthin we also have given our completely free guidebook a complete ‘once over’.
We have gone digital for 2012. For the first time we have not gone down the ‘printing it on paper’ route but decided to create an interactive flip-book version. For hopefully everybody to enjoy the guidebook we have the put up a few versions, which should work on pretty much any device.
The 2012 guidebook is, as usual full of interesting stories, features and information about MTB Marathons and road sportives and will hopefully fill all the gaps you might have.
So sit back and enjoy the read and hopefully see you at the 2012 CRC and Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport MTB Marathon Series and the Vitus Road Sportives powered by CycleOps Power. So far we have had over 7,000 people checking the 2012 guidebook out.
To read the 2012 guidebook simply go to the www.mtb-marathon.co.uk website and click on the magazine cover in the right hand column. Or if you are using a device which is non Flash enabled you can use the ISSUU ipad/ipod version instead.
