Tickets are on sale now for the 2018 Malverns Classic

Fans of retro mountain biking rejoice! The Malverns Classic mountain bike race is actually, proper back after nearly 20 years.

The event will take place at Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire on the 14th to 17th June 2018.

It’s going to be a 4 day festival of mountain biking and – true to the original – will have a tonne of mountain bike events for punters and pros alike. And loads of beer, music, camping and fun stuff.

There’s also going to be the very exciting Wideopenmag Bunny Hop competition where we challenge you lot to a classic, old school bunny hop comp. We’ll have beers, we’ll have prizes, we’ll have a lot of fun. We especially welcome people who are very, very poor at bunny hops!

The great news is that tickets are now on sale and can be bought for a single day or the full weekend. You pay your ticket and then pay for event entries on top of that (they’ll be live later on).

Tickets are on sale here on the 2018 GT Bicycles Malverns Classic events page.
