Here we are, our first Army Cycling Enduro Series!
ACES promises to #InspireSoldiersToCycle, by enabling MTB riders of all standards across the Army (Regular and Reserve) to compete against each other whilst representing their Units.
Round 1 - Llandegla is the perfect introduction to enduro racing and will predominantly be trail centre. However, the technical difficulty is low; but, the race still promises to be challenging.
Round 2 - The Forest of Dean Cycle Centre has a superb mixture of trail centre and off piste tracks. This race will be a mix of off piste and trail centre. This will be a slight step up from Llandegla in terms of technical difficulty; but, it is still a great place for the novice to experience the more natural side of enduro riding.
Round 3 - Hamsterley Forest is another perfect grass roots location, plenty of trail centre with a little bit of off piste thrown in to keep you on your toes. Another great location for getting to grips with the enduro format.
Round 4 - The season finale, the awesome Bike Park Wales plays host to the closing round. Trails will be a mixture of Red and Blue graded tech trails.
