Are you ready for the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic 2018?

On the weekend of 15-17 June the Malverns Classic returns after 20 years away. Here's what you can expect to see there and what you'll find if you visit the MBUK stand…

The main events

There’s plenty to watch and do at this year’s festival which is held on the grounds of Eastnor Deer Park, Ledbury in Gloucestershire. The big event of the weekend is the MBUK Legends downhill race – an invite only comp on the Sunday where you can watch some of the big names from the early days of MBUK compete on retro rides of their choice. Expect to see Will Longden, Dave Hemming, Martin Hawyes, Tim Ponting and many more greats in action from around 11am.

There’s also a demo weekender ongoing throughout the three days where you can try out the latest bikes from the likes of GT, Specialized, Stanton and Transition; a dedicated kids zone where your little ‘uns can brush up on their bike skills; stunt shows, lake ride, retro show & shine and tons more to watch or get involved with. Full event details available here.
