Looking to put together a team to take on the mighty MacRetro in their own back yard!

Quote:
Now in its sixth year 10 Under the Ben is a must do for all mountain bike enthusiasts. 10 Under the Ben is the first of the Three Ten events; this is an opportunity for riders, racers, off road riders and the weekend warriors to get out and get on their bikes.

Participants can compete as a solo or in relay teams of two, three or four. The race is an endurance format with teams and individuals competing to see who can complete the most laps in the 10 hours.

After the huge success of 2009 the No Fuss Team will again host their flagship event at Nevis Range, the home of the 2007 World Championships and the UK’s round of the World Cup in 2009. In 2008 and in 2009 we were treated to not only the highest race registration in the country but on one of the most stunning sunsets of the summer. In 2009 over 700 riders made registration at the top station for the pre race meal. We will admit this caught us a wee bit on the back foot however we assure you we will be prepared in 2010.

“Don’t worry if you do not look good in Lycra, No Fuss events are all about taking part in a hobby that we enjoy, competition is up to the individual its more about taking part, riding a great course with loads of like minded people and have a good time” said Frazer Coupland Partner No Fuss Events.

10 Under the Ben is a real family day out there will be entertainment and music for all, race registration and pre race party commence on the Friday evening, with the race scheduled to start at 0930 on Saturday and après race party going on late into Saturday Night for those who have the energy


Sounds perfect, so who's interested in getting a team or two together?

Very keen... :-) Happy to fit in any easy going team combo (even Klein-riders... ;-) )

Can't wait for the 2010 season!
