If you want multi-day enduro stage racing, you usually need to head to the continent, but the EX Enduro offers just that, only set in the hills around Minehead, Somerset. Entries are set to open for the 2018 edition and if our experience last year is anything to go by, it'll be a banger.
Taking place on the 14-16th September 2018, the event is open to just 80 riders, with entries opening on the 1st April for pre-registered riders and 48 hours later for everyone else. It's expected to sell out quickly, unsurprisingly.
As well as over 100km and more than 20 timed stages over some of the best natural trails in the UK, the EX also offers treats such as the vintage tea stop and cliff-top beer and ice cream van. You'll also be well fed and watered, with a solid breakfast and evening meal put on each day, plus beer from Bristol Beer Factory.
The EX is presented by DMR Bikes with support from National Trust, Lezyne, TRP, XFusion, Bristol Beer Factory, Bontrager, Carbon Cycles, Disco Brakes, Rideguard and Fenwick’s.
