The event village will once again be the hub of the action, hosting an expo area with all the latest kit from the best brands in the sport, demo rides on dedicated loops, top quality food and drink, live music, pump track competition and new attractions like a jump jam for have-a-go heroes ready to go for glory in front of the crowds.

The Ard Rock Marathon has also been ‘spiced up’, rebranded as the Ard Rock Epic to reflect the new course and stages along its 60km route. Whether you’re an old-school XC racing snake, traditional big country rider or an enduro veteran in search of a new challenge, the Epic puts a new spin on the traditional Ard Rock formula to reward all-round riders of all abilities. It sounds like a level playing field of sorts, were it not for the epic nature of the terrain, the tough climbs and challenging singletrack descents. Check this page for more information. 

None of this would have been possible without the incredible solidarity shown by Ard Rockers far and wide. Both the Ard Rock team and the local community remain hugely grateful for the support shown.

Amanda Wishart

Singletrack Art Director

When Amanda arrived at Singletrack she had only been riding for a couple of years, but having already ticked off a healthy list of uplifts and races including Megavalanche, we didn’t see any problems with her keeping up. Previously serving 11 years in a publishing house, she was keen to continue her art and design career without being tied to a desk, and has progressed as both a rider and a designer from all the fresh air Calderdale offers.

She began mountain biking to keep herself occupied out of snowboard season, but bikes have since taken over as the preferred sport. It’s not a hobby - it’s a lifestyle, and the impact riding has had on Amanda’s life is more than just how she chooses to spend her weekends. Relocating to Calderdale, giving up driving, being more eco aware are all either directly or loosely related to the sport and the future of it.

Her love of bikes isn’t for the adrenalin rush, the exercise, achieving goals or even the travelling, it’s mostly about the people she meets along the way. She’s our in-house tree hugger and is interested in any earth positive products and vegan trail snacks.

    wonder if many people returned 2019 tickets, good to see the marathon reformated to the Epic,
    with timing chips for sections uphill down and along singletrack, sounds far more fun..

    bigger, better and Ard’er..
