Though organisers can only tease by saying "we've struck gold" as new plot to remain a secret for now

Mountain Mayhem 2013 shifts venue

Following last year’s deluge, the Wiggle Mountain Mayhem has announced that the venue will move 40 miles down the road this year, though all organisers can say at present is "we’ve struck gold".

The dates have been announced too as running over the weekend of the 15th/16th of June, with camping opening on the 14th.

Patrick Adams of Pacific Edge Events, owners and organisers of Wiggle Mountain Mayhem said “After last year’s
Mayhem at Eastnor – as no doubt everyone knows the muddiest ever experienced – we decided it was time for a
change. Finding a new location for Wiggle Mountain Mayhem is no easy task. There are very few places that
have everything that we need.

“We are beside ourselves with excitement if the truth be known. We believe we have found the perfect venue. It is less than 40 miles from Eastnor, but as a private venue, we are extremely lucky to have found it. There are well made forest tracks and gravely rock structure with high organic content making the soil drain well. It is only through many hours of research that we did, but my goodness it was worth waiting for.

“We are sworn to secrecy for a little while longer. We are fit to burst!! Suffice to say the venue is privately owned, never ever been used for cycling before and has some really exciting mountain biking. We can’t say better than that.”

Forms will be available to download at midnight on 28th February and take to Pat’s house for the almost
legendary through-the-night pilgrimage to be the first to get your entry in. On-line entry will be available from
midday on 1st March from
