CRC MTB Marathons

TORQ are proud to announce their new partnership with the Chain Reaction Cycles MTB Marathon series for 2012.

As the official nutrition sponsors, of course TORQ will be onsite at every round and you’ll be able to pick up your supplies from the TORQ RV as usual, but we’ve also put together a nutritional guide to help steer you in the right direction with regard to preparation and fuelling for these kinds of events:

This is the 13th season of the Chain Reaction Cycles MTB Marathon Series and will once again offer a broad range of courses and locations to all you MTB Marathon enthusiasts, novices and intermediates alike. So whatever your skill or fitness level, we will have the right course length and level of difficulty for your ability with the choice of course length to progress over time – while enabling you to experience and discover challenging and exciting mountain biking terrain across the UK.

For over a decade now, the CRC MTB Marathon Series have consisted of five different events starting in mid-April with the traditional Exposure Light Big Night Out (ELBNO) Night Marathon and going all the way through the summer bringing the series to an end around mid-September with the final round in Ruthin. The 2012 series will stick to this well proven format while adding a few interesting changes to the line-up.

The biggest news for 2012 is the introduction of a new venue in Abergavenny Wales. Besides the main MTB Marathons the team will also host two ELBNO events and the Vitus Road Sportives.
