If you thought this was the year when events would run smoothly, think again. Mountain Mayhem has been forced to cancel yet again. Will we ever see the return of this event in its new format?
An announcement on their Facebook page reads:
Coronavirus Cancels Mountain Mayhem… Again.
Despite the government’s latest roadmap announcement, Mountain Mayhem will still not be able to go ahead in 2021.
Jill Greenfield, owner and organiser of Mountain Mayhem explained why: “Unfortunately there are still too many variables for Mayhem to go ahead this year. It’s great that there is now a roadmap announced by the government, but the country is not out of the woods yet. Our usual Mayhem dates – closest available weekend to the longest day – are far too close to the potential lifting of restrictions. It only needs one of the roadmap dates to be put back and we would have to cancel last minute. We can’t put the event in that position, so we reluctantly have taken the decision to hold off until 2022. We are really sorry and very disappointed and we hope that all our riders and sponsors will understand.”
So, another free weekend then – what will we do instead? Will be riding from our door again, or able to venture a little further. Who knows!
