Trans-Provence All-Mountain Race
A quick heads up to let you know that the Trans-Provence enduro race kicks off on the 25th September.
The Trans-Provence is a 7-day point-to-point rally-style mountain bike race in the South of France, in a nutshell it's 7 days, 26 timed stages, 320 km, 9500 metres vertical ascent, 15200 metres vertical descent... and most importantly more sweet singletrack than you can shake a stick at!
Our very own Steve Jones will be racing this super tough event along side the likes of Nico Vouilloz, Fabien Barel, Marc Beaumont, Mark Weir, Tracy Moseley and many more top riders.
Jonesy will be beaming in regular updates from his tent each night of the race and we'll also have a big feature in the magazine. Keep 'em peeled.

UPDATE: Ash, the organiser has just phoned to say that they have one spare place if anyone wants a last minute entry into this amazing race.
"We've had one more person drop out of Trans-Provence 2011 today due to injury.
As such, there is ONE spot left.
The event is 24/09 - 02/10.
Please email me ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in snapping this up.
