The Marshbrook (Shropshire) round of the CRC MTB Marathon Series powered by Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport is not far away (14-15th July) and we thought we will give everybody who did not make it in 2011 the chance to soak up a little bit of the atmosphere and the scenary by putting a little image newsletter together.
So here it goes:
SATURDAY: We started the weekend in 2011 with the road sportives on the Saturday of the event weekend. This year will be no exception with having the VITUS Sportives powered by CycleOps Power offering the riders two specatular courses over and around the Lony Mynd. Find out more about these two scenic road courses on the Marshrbook page of the VITUS Sportive website (www.roadsportives.co.uk) and make sure you get your entry in now vis the sportive entry page. If you enter online you will be entitled to a 5% discount on your next CRC purchase!
