Saab Salomon Mountain Mayhem 2004

   

This year's Mountain Mayhem 24-hour mountain bike endurance race was held in the picturesque Eastnor Deer Park, Herefordshire. The race is a team relay lasting from 2pm Saturday until 2pm Sunday. Steve and Hayley were two members of a team in the Mixed category.

This year the heavens opened and turned what would have otherwise been a tough but rideable course into a quagmire! Singletrack magazine suggested it was "the toughest UK 24-hour race ever". To decide for yourself have a look at some photos of the course.

Afterwards we heard of many teams not bothering to ride during the night and some even gave up and went home after only a few hours. But we soldiered on and made it through to the finish, not least because two of our team did an extra lap each - well done Andy and Damon!.

Most importantly, Hayley was sponsored by many people to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis Society (UK) and raised over 300. So very many thanks to all of you who supported her.

Some of the photos we took over the weekend are here.
