The Kona supported Angus Cycling Festival has “surpassed all expectations” organisers say.
The festival was the brainchild of Angus Cycle Hub and the Scottish Mountain Bike Consortium, and with the support of grant funding from Angus Council organisers devised a busy schedule designed to appeal to all ages and abilities.
The 2 day event based in Forfar, Scotland was the culmination of a month of cycling events and saw a number of Kona supported events taking place including Pump Track Racing, Airbag Best Trick & High Jump Competition and an Enduro MTB race.
Scott Francis from Angus Cycling Hub said, “ We are stoked with how well the event has been received, we have had over 400 competitors in the various events we put on during the duration of the festival and we figure they must have covered a staggering 8500+km of cycling”. “The Kona demo stand had a wide variety of demonstrator bikes available and there was a constant flow of visitors to it during Saturday and lots of interest in the Process range from Enduro racers”.
The festival finished with a bang with The Forfar Funduro race on Sunday 14th September. The Enduro style MTB race saw competitors tackle a range of stages including quarry and dual slalom stages. The Enduro was ultimately won by Kona UK supported rider Thomas Mitchell who was crowned king of the hill.
