10 Under The Ben

by Sim 1

Frazer and Spook from No Fuss Events along with a host of helpers have been busy making one of the best race courses around even better.

Don't worry, those aren't skinnys…

With only 2 weeks left until another season of No Fuss Events kicks off the guys behind No Fuss (Spook and Frazer) have been putting some major time in on the course and have made some pretty major changes from previous years. Despite being battered with several days of torrential Fort William rain the boys have added 5 new natural technical sections on the course and a few bits of boardwalk too. Its all going to dry out to make some fantastic endurance racing!

All the new sections were still under construction when I dropped by so didn’t get the chance to ride it all but Frazer has promised it will even blow the 10 at Kirroughtree course away (which is pretty special for those who haven’t ridden it!). Unfortunately, due to understandable Forrestry restrictions they can’t give out the course map yet as there is still a bit of work to be done!!…. but last time I counted there were 5 new sections of brand new trail on the course!

Entries are filling up with all categories looking pretty competitive. For some reason 10 Under the Ben seems to attract a wide variety of riders, from the solo endurance machines to the weekend warrior just having a go, last years Quads were even being won by a bunch of downhill racers! Its always one of the most fun events of the year for me to film, I always head there to make the event video and as you can see from last years video below the sun always shines!

  1. A superb XC course, one of the best I’ve ridden in the UK – just got back and really enjoyed the event even if it was a 9 hour drive each way to get there and back!
