Wales360, the UK’s newest mountain biking event has launched its latest promotional video to mark 200 days to go until the inaugural event in July 2019.
Bringing a taste of legendary off-road events such as the Cape Epic and BC Bike race to the classic trails of Wales, Wales360 will allow up to 600 riders, competing in teams of two or solo riders, the chance to discover a 550-kilometre route through Mid and North Wales over six, point-to-point stages.
Uniquely each day will feature a timed stage within the day of riding that is timed separately, taking influence from Enduro racing it gives riders the chance to push themselves to the limit on both the climbs and descents for a short section within the overall stage. Balancing challenge with reward is what Wales360 is all about.
As well the chance to ride on some of the world’s best trails and a fantastic route through breathtaking Welsh scenery, entry to Wales360 also includes 7 nights, all-inclusive accommodation either in the boutique tented village (5 nights), or en-suite hotel accommodation (2 nights) along with a daily professional bike service, locally sourced and regionally appropriate, food and drink, secure overnight storage and kit transfer.
Out on the route riders can expect waymarking and professional timing services, plus four refuelling and support points on each of the six days of riding, which takes in almost 13,000 metres of ascent.
The video marks the start of a partnership between Wales360 and the 4Seasoncollective agency who will be delivering the marketing and advertising campaign for the event.
