Wales360 gears up for debut year with 200 days to go

Wales360, the UK’s newest MTB event, has launched its latest promotional video to mark 200 days to go until the inaugural event in July this year.

The event will see around 600 riders, competing solo or in teams of two, take on a 550 km route through Mid and North Wales over six point-to-point stages, with each day featuring a timed stage.

Wales360 will start in Aberystwyth on Monday 22 July, finishing back in the Welsh coastal town six days later on Saturday 27 July, having taken in a route that includes classic mountain biking locations such as Coed y Brenin and the Elan Valley. Riders will pass through Gwynedd, including Snowdonia National Park, Denbighshire, Conwy, and Powys.

Entry for the event includes all-inclusive accommodation in either a boutique tented village or en-suite hotel, in addition to daily professional bike service, locally-sourced food and drink, secure overnight storage and kit transfer.

Out on the route riders can expect way marking and professional timing services, plus four refuelling and support points on each day of riding, which takes in almost 13,000 metres of ascent.

The video marks the start of a partnership between Wales360 and the 4Seasoncollective agency who will be delivering the marketing and advertising campaign for the event.
