Whilst Beaumont is renowned for his record-breaking achievements on the tarmac, the 2019 Strathpuffer 24 will be his first ever MTB race and marks the start of a whole new grittier two-wheeled journey for the Scottish adventurer.
“I have lived on the ribbon of tar for many years, and now it is time to explore off-road. Alex and I hope to take on some of the world’s biggest endurance races in the coming years and we’re jumping in at the deep end with this one. I love living, training and riding in Scotland – even in the middle of winter – so why not try the iconic Strathpuffer 24 and find out what everyone has been talking about?”
The ‘Puffer has a history of attracting big names from the world of adventure and endurance sports with the likes of Guy Martin and Alastair Humphries having participated in the past.
The 14th edition of the legendary winter mountain bike endurance event will take place on the 19th/20th of January 2019 in Contin, near Strathpeffer in the Highlands of Scotland.
