THE EX, presented by DMR bikes, will return for the 4th time in 2018.

After the 1st public event in 2016 and the follow up in 2017 we managed to shape THE EX into exactly what we wanted it to be. It is hard on the climbs, unforgettable on the descents and just tough enough to be a challenge but fun enough to rank as a ‘best ride ever’ experience.

Off the bike (we think anyway!) we got the vibe exactly as we wanted it. The beers flowed, hungry bellies were filled with great local food and the race village was abuzz with the “do you remember that bit?!” shouts that go with any great ride.

Check out a small selection of pictures from the last two years, taken by pro photographer Roo Fowler, Paul Box and video master Dominic John.

Dominic John put together two videos from the 2017 THE EX event:

Roo also created a series of short daily videos showing his experience of THE EX:

Jim from PinnedTV also joined us for the race (and made it onto the podium!).

He documented his weekend here:
