Traversing many of the best and most demanding trails the Isle of Man has to offer.
July 30 2017
The Manx 100 is certainly not suited to anyone who looks at cycling as a gentle pastime! Instead this is a full-on, arduous 100 mile or 100 kilometre ultra marathon mountain bike challenge.
Aimed fairly and squarely at battle hardened, experienced and skilled mountain bikers, the event is designed to test every riders’ fitness, mental strength and endurance. Traversing many of the best and most demanding trails the Isle of Man has to offer, the whole idea of the race is to push competitors way beyond their comfort zone. This really is no walk in the park!
Growing in popularity year on year, the full 100 mile course includes a gruelling 16,000 feet of climbs, with the shorter 100km event ascending a mere 3500km!
Starting and finishing at the TT Grandstand, the top competitors finish the longer course in around 11 hours, whilst the shorter version takes about seven hours, with the last riders coming home around sunset.
There are no organiser-led feed stations, no bike shops open, nothing in the way of mechanical assistance and very few stores en route. Other than a couple of bag drop points and two water checkpoints, you’re basically on your own. So planning and self sufficiency is essential!
Directional arrows and marshals are strategically positioned where necessary but, other than minimal outsider support, it’s just you and the unspoilt Manx countryside for company.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable mountain bike adventure, then you’re definitely on the right track with the Manx 100!
