Entries for the 2020 Ard Rock Festival go live at 0700 on Friday November 1st, so set your alarms as this event will sell out faster than ever.
The 2020 Ard Rock Festival will run from July 31st to August 2nd, with four enduro and one ‘epic’ event offering a taste of Swaledale for everyone who fancies turning a wheel on dirt.
Entries go live here at 0700 this Friday 1st November.
The beating heart of Ard Rock is the event village that has the usual festival setup, with the addition of a pump track challenge, a bespoke demo loop for the enormous fleet of demo bikes on site and an all-new dirt jump jam.
For those who want to go and go against the clock though, there are five events on offer. Four enduros and the rebranded marathon, now the Ard Rock Epic.
