24, 12 & 6 hour MTB Endurance race & 4 day off road cycling festival
Sweet Sixteen! Yeah that's how old this event is.
A 4 day off-road cycling festival built around a 12 / 24 hour endurance event. TwentyFour12 is biggest mountain bike endurance event in the UK with 4 days of exciting events for all ages and all the family. The schedule is stacked and includes a trail run, kids racing, enduro and of course the 24hr, 12hr and new for 2022 the 6hr event.
Like all 16 year olds this event is constantly changing and evolving. For 2022 we're introducing a new 6hr Category for those that think 12hr / 24hr is just that little bit too far and too crazy. We've tweaked some of the categories to reflect the number of entries we had in 2021.
We're making the Ultimate USE Enduro bigger than ever. It will become fully chip timed and operate on a "Mash Up" from 4pm until 9pm so riders will be able to ride run and after to perfect their lines. It also means that if you're not lucky enough to be able to take the Friday off work you should be able to come down after work and compete.
Those are the major changes but we'll also be making others based of feedback from the 2021 event.
Twentyfour12 is an endurance Mountain Bike Race around a course of approximately 12km, entirely off road, with a family friendly festival vibe.
Whilst the main part of the event is the 24 / 12hr event we also have so much more happening such as the 10km Trail Run on Thursday evening. On Friday we have an Ultimate USE Enduro MTB event using 6 famed sections within Newnham Park.
The kids skills and thrills training session went down a treat at the 2021 event so that back for 2022 and happens on the Friday afternoon. That's all in preparation for the kids 12 / 24 minute race on the Saturday morning.
The "Hot Lap" event that we held in 2021 has evolved and now becomes the "Short Course" event. 20 riders race against each other over a short lap for just 20 minutes. Super fast and close racing where young and old can compete against each other. We'll also include a eBike version of the short course race *minimum age 14yrs
On top of all that we've got bike demos, more live music than ever before, trade stands, social rides, FREE Camping and much much more.
