Day Two Highlights from The Merida EX Presented by Shimano.

Widely touted as the best enduro race of the year, The Merida EX Presented by Shimano is back for the 2022 edition.

THE MERIDA EX Presented by Shimano’s second day highlights are here, with plenty more amazing riding around Exmoor on offer for the riders.

Saturday at THE MERIDA EX, presented by Shimano, and what a day.

An incredible nine stages, over 1500m of climbing, 40k of distance, a vintage tea party in the middle and a pub quiz and dinner party to finish. Another massive day of mountain bike racing, done our way.

The previous night’s Exposure Lights Night Stages (and after party) meant a few bleary eyes, tired legs and sore heads for the start of day two. Despite that, our riders hit the hills bright and early for no less than 9 timed special stages.

We had bags of variety with everything from the infamous ‘Two-Miler’ moorland gallop to Minehead’s finest tight-and-techy to that new Turns-In-The-Ferns descent. It was another unforgettable day for the 80 members of THE MERIDA EX family. 

We’ll let the video do the talking. On to Sunday and our final day. We’ll update you later in the week with our main round-up video.
