Scott 100, Round 2 Ready in Rhayader

by 3

We’ve just had an enthusiastic reminder about the upcoming Scott 100 event in Rhayader. It’s just over a week away!

And even though it’s only a dozen miles up the road from Event One in Builth Wells, the terrain is going to be completely different in style (and slightly better sheltered in case there is any weather…)

There’s a permanent sun that follows Nick ‘Persil White’ Craig around. Get under it!

Forest road climbs and wooded single-track descents are the order of the day, and the organisers reckon it’s full-on Scott Genius territory. They also say “Those of you who remember the exposed, windy mountain sides of Round 1 will be thrilled to ride in the sheltered forests that host the famous Welsh 2 Day Motorcycle Enduro. What are you waiting for?”

“Probably the best half marathon of the series” says Dave Evans, course designer and event organiser, “The descents are fun for everyone, but become challenging at speed. Bad weather (not that there’s any booked – Ed) will just make the course more interesting but won’t affect the riding.”

The odd river splash is allowed if it’s to cool the feet

Camping will be free with no booking needed from Friday evening onwards, with registration kicking off around 2pm Saturday. The Wheelies bar will be open from 4pm and the free pasta party will start at six with live entertainment from the Hurricanes set for the evening. You can still enter now, or any time up to the day.

The guys from The Bulls Cycling club will once again be on hand with children’s coaching session too.

Now have a browse of the website and don’t look at these photos…
