Set in a region famed for its myths and legends, defended by strikingly rugged landscapes, and proud of its longstanding culture, the Cymru MTB Classic is a race for riders with a pure love of mountain biking who possess the desire to race through established trails in areas that have never before seen racing on two-wheels.

Get ready for a mountain bike stage race that the United Kingdom has never seen before.

Teams of two, in it together from beginning to end.

The Cymru MTB Classic is a mountain bike stage race for teams of two riders.

Teamwork comes to the fore as both riders in the team are required to remain together throughout their time on the route.

Each morning, teams set off and will have to overcome any obstacles in their path, together, if they are to claim their finisher medals.

Success is best when it’s shared.

Wales is a nation where you could stand upon a kilometre-high peak and gaze over four different nations. It is a nation proud of its outstanding beauty, its rich and complex heritage, and its castles. Wales is home to the Cymru MTB Classic and it welcomes all those riders seeking adventure.

Situated in Gwynedd County, in Southern Snowdonia, is the town of Dolgellau – a market town and community that is the perfect base from which to explore and experience the famed Snowdonia and Wales’ unique culture.

This land is waiting to be explored, “Cymru am Byth”
