Team Haibike joined a band of trusted mechanics, eager racers and support staff descended on Gatcombe Park, Gloucestershire for the 2013 edition of Mountain Mayhem at the weekend (14th-16th June).
On Thursday, we set up shop with our friends from Raleigh, Unior, Slime, Haibike and Diamondback offering free giveaways and tune-ups for racers taking part in the unique 24 hour race format.
Our mechanics certainly had their work cut out for them, with racers battling through the tough, muddy race course and bringing back battered bikes which needed quick and effective patching up to keep hopes of a good finishing time alive.
Bryan Harris, first rider out for the race team, said:
“The weather wasn’t that great on the Saturday morning as you can see from the photos. Also we were not aware there would be a half mile run at the start of the race!
“We managed to complete 19 laps between us which wasn’t too bad considering the weather and manning the mechanics tent all night!
We want to do the event again next year as it was great fun.”
