Pre-register

The 2021 event is current sold out. Except for a handful of people, all 2020 entries have been moved over to the 2021 event. If you are currently entered, but you have to pull out, please contact us on ride@the-ex.co.uk and we can look into the options.

Should we have any free spaces nearer the time, we will contact the riders on our reserve list first, before we make any announcements on our social media channels.


THE MERIDA EX 3-day Enduro 2020 is open to just 80 riders.

That means you won’t queue for a trail, a beer or a burger all weekend. You won’t ride a single knackered corner or breaking bump.

You’ll ride with your mates, and you’ll make some new ones … then you’ll party with the same people in the evening (if you can keep your eyes open, that is!).

It’s fun, it’s no hassle, and it’s low stress. It’s also low impact on Exmoor’s trails, which is good for everyone. There are also brilliant bacon sarnies!

As in 2019, we will be welcoming eBike riders with open arms. There will be 1-2 specific eBike stages, and we will have dedicated charging facilities for your battery/batteries at our event HQ. We will also offer the option to carry a 2nd battery to the feed stop and offer a ‘battery top-up’ at the feed station as well.

Entries to THE EX will open on Sunday the 1st of March 2020 at 9 am for everybody who has put their name on the pre-registration list. ONLY RIDERS WHO ARE PRE-REGISTERED WILL GET THE PRIVATE ENTRY LINK BEFORE THE 1ST OF MARCH 2020.

Please pre-register below.

Should there be entries available 48 hours after that date, then we will make the entry page public at 9 am on the 3rd of March 2020.

With entries usually selling out well before they’re even open to the public (3mins in 2019), so pre-registration is highly recommended.
