    New German Self Support Race



    „Grenzsteintrophy“ – Germany's Mountainbike Boundary Experience

    The „Grenzsteintrophy“ (Boundary Stone Trophy) will offer Europe’s first mountain bike self support ride over a distance of approx. 1,300 kms (800 miles). Starting June 24th 2009, the GST will take off-road bikers along the former border that divided the former two German states FDR and GDR – 20 years after the frontier's fall.

    Just registered for the mondial du vtt freeraid classic,

    How come that gets so little coverage outside France? Anyone got any tips on riding it?

    The passportes du soleil (also registered for) gets loads of magazine coverage.

    Many may have already seen this thread (over in the endurance group), but thought I'd post a link for anyone who hasn't.

    MTB (Ultra) Endurance events in Europe?

    Cheers!

    What part of Europe will you be in?

    What sort of rides/races do you prefer?

    I prefer to race marathons and or 12/24 hour events. I will be in a campervan, so am free to drive anywhere within the EU.

    I am a bit away from the Central parts of Europe: Finland. Tahko MTB is the biggest event here: options for 60, 120 and 180 km. This year it is July 3rd.

    Some impressions: Pics and words from the Finland's biggest MTB Event
    Contact: http://www.tahkomtb.fi/fi/Yhteystiedot.html

    Then there's Lohja 24, in the South of Finland on 22-23 May: a 24h race / event

    pics: http://mikon.1g.fi/kuvat/2009/lohja_24h/

    ---------
    For events in UK (and maybe others?), I'd browse the Bikeradar and Singletrack magazine websites. They tend to have pretty good information.

    ---------
    Germany, France, Spain, etc. surely have events and races going but I don't know any details. If all else fails, you might find something with Google.

    I hear great things about riding in Finland, however they say the only negative is its expensive. I am now sure if that means the fuel, accom or food....but if the trails are good, then a trip to Finland sounds great (for an Australian).

    If you come to Finland, definitely bring your own bike: rentals are rare and good ones even more so.

    To get here from "mainland" you'll have to drive a pretty long way and/or take a ferry, unless you are flying.

    Also, there's practically no "trail centers" or even marked trails: unless you are at an event, you need local people to show you the good routes. ... or go exploring and possibly find something.

    No mountains either. It is mainly "broken terrain" with smaller ups and downs.

    I keep some snapshots of my local trails at

    I'm riding in a team at "10 under the Ben" in Fort William, Scotland on May 15th.

    Its a Ten hour endurance race, with a ten mile lap, at the foot of Ben Nevis - hence the event name. Link below - entries still open.
