As MTB events go, the iconic TwentyFour12 is perhaps one of the most loved and fun endurance events on the calendar.

TwentyFour12 hooks up with Pivot Cycles

Now in its eleventh year, MTB endurance event TwentyFour12 returns on July 23rd and 24th, alongside a brand-new title sponsor, Pivot Cycles.

2016 marks the fifth year that Pivot has been involved with the event, and it will see the US brand taking centre stage as the title sponsor for the first time.

As well as enjoying the world-class trails of the much loved Newnham Park course, riders will be treated to all the top-class entertainment synonymous with TwentyFour12, and will be able to take the latest bikes from the Pivot range out for a spin. The full Pivot demo fleet will be available to try out, including the Pivot Switchblade, the Mach4 cross country race bike, and the iconic Pivot LES hardtail.

“We are very excited to title sponsor this amazing long-running event,” says Rory Hitchens, marketing manager for Pivot’s UK distributor, Upgrade Bikes Ltd. “TwentyFour12 holds a magic place in the mountain bike calendar, and the varied terrain of Newnham Park is ideally suited to our bikes. If you want to compare times between one of our bikes and your own ride, we will even let you take one out for a lap of the race. We look forward to seeing you at Pivot TwentyFour12."

As well as demonstrating Pivot’s new releases, riders and visitors will be truly spoiled with one of the best TwentyFour12 line-ups ever.

New for 2016’s event is a large outdoor movie screen that will be showing a variety of films across the weekend and, joining the wide range of onsite caterers, there will be a fresh pizza vendor and live music.

Camping at TwentyFour12 has long been free and a central part of the fun of the event. As introduced in 2015, not only are you able to camp trackside, but the camping packages have been extended so you can now spend the whole week at the venue. Newnham Park is also a safe and enclosed environment for children to play and ride their bikes so they can have fun with all the new friends they are likely to make with other children from across the country whilst you relax or ride.
