- A fully signposted 6-day route which passes through a huge variety of different landscapes and containsmore singletrack than any other 6-day MTB event. Detailed route description booklet plus GPS data for navigational back-up.
- Groundbreaking multi-timed-stage-per-day format which creates excitement, but equally a friendly and sociable rally-style ambience.
- Vehicle uplifts each morning to the trailhead (intended to maximise the quantity of singletrack we are able to cover daily, not make the route “easier”)

- Transportation of your kit bag –clothing and bike equipment– from one camp to the next (i.e. your stuff will be waiting for you when you arrive at camp each afternoon).
