THE MERIDA EX Enduro 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!

2019 will also welcome eBike riders with open arms. We’ve also invited them along, but this year will be the first with our own dedicated eMTB category and a few special treats for anyone with an electric bike. More news on that later!

Entries to THE EX will open on Saturday 2nd March 2019 at 9am for everybody who has put their name on the pre-registration list. Please pre-register below.

Should there be entries available 48hours after that date, then we will make the entry page public at 9am on the 4th March 2019.

With entries usually selling out well before they’re even open to the public, pre-registration is highly recommended.
