2020 Strathpuffer Customer Team Competition

By Alpkit
15, Oct, 2019

We are looking to build a team of 4 Alpkit and Sonder customers to enter the 2020 Strathpuffer 24 hour mountain bike endurance race.

So did you hear about that festival that sold out instantly ?... well that was Strathpuffer, such is the love for the event it is incredibly difficult to get your hands on an entry. Now we know our customers are always up for a challenge, which is why we are really excited about offering 4 of you the chance to represent us at next years Strathpuffer 24hr mountain bike race. Some may be thinking... well you could have offered us the Tuscany Trail, or Finale Ligure 24hr. But where's the fun in that!? 17 hours of darkness. Miles upon miles of gruelling terrain. A brutal mix of ice, wind, hail, mud and snow, and maybe, just maybe, a glorious Scottish winter sunrise... Yes that's why the Strathpuffer sells out rapidly and places are hard to come by.

When it comes to mountain bike challenges, they don't come much tougher or more rewarding than the Strathpuffer - the legendary 24 hour mountain bike endurance event held every year in the Highlands of Scotland in the middle of winter. So this is a brilliant opportunity to take part. 

You can check out how our team of Alpkiteers got on last year.

Some people have that weird pleasure of enduring the whole 24 hours as a solo challenge, fair enough we say... but we like the whole social aspect too so we thought we would offer up the chance to win an entry as part of a quad team, so you can experience the event together. The idea of the competition is to show what our brilliant customers are made of, of course. To give 4 lucky riders who missed out on entry, the oppurtunity to fly the Alpkit and Sonder bikes flag. We are not looking for the world elite, just nice people who would really love and appreciate the chance to be part of the event. 

To enter you need to follow these steps:

Good Luck to everyone!
