No Fuss Events announce new mountain bike and ski enduro: SKI-AN-DURO

Local events organisers, No Fuss Events, have today announced an exciting new addition to their 2018 event calendar.

Ski-An-Duro is a ski/snowboard and mountain bike race, starting at the summit of Aonach Mor and finishing at the Pinemarten Cafe Bar at the Gondola base station.

The event is set to take place on 17 March 2018 with around 150 individuals or teams expected to take part.

Peter MacFarlane, Managing Director at Nevis Range said “It’s great to continue our successful collaboration with No Fuss with the launch of another new and exciting event here at Nevis Range”.

The format for Ski-An-Duro is simple: two initial stages with your combined time giving you a grid position for the final mass start race.

Stage One – a classic mountain bike enduro stage utilising one of the many legendary stages at Nevis Range.

Stage Two – the snow sport stage utilising the Nevis Range mountain terrain and maximising the existing snow cover. This stage is for skiers or boarders and will present a course as demanding as conditions will allow.

Stage Three – the mass start race from as high on the mountain as conditions will allow, participants will race to the designated transition area before changing to mountain bike and descending the mountain using parts of the world famous mountain bike downhill course and other classic enduro routes that the mountain has to offer.

Chris O’Brien, destination manager for the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, said: “Just when you’re settling down for a some gentle 2018 planning, No Fuss Events come along with something totally off the wall and get the whole team excited about a stunning new race for the ‘Outdoor Capital’ calendar! We can’t wait to work with Nevis Range and No Fuss to help make this happen every year!”

Bring on 2018!
