The GT Malverns Classic has succumb, like almost all other events on the calendar, to a coronavirus linked postponement of its 2020 event.
Up until very recently it appeared as though the Malverns Classic would push through, with the green light to go ahead apparently delivered. The organiser has now written on its website that a local Covid-19 outbreak has quickly delivered the final blow to hopes of an event this year.
The organisers have now confirmed the 2021 event will take place at Eastnor Deer Park in Herefordshire over the August bank holiday running the 26th to 29th.
The Malverns Classic 2021 will, as usual, comprise an exhibition element with what is expected to be over 100 participating brands and as many as 40 bike label demos. The event, one of the largest of its kind in the mountain bike world, is famed for its racing, lake ride feature and accessibility to riders ranging downhillers to cross country riders.
