We took to the great outdoors again this weekend with No.40 Sunglasses for the wet and muddy Wiggle Mountain Mayhem 24 hour mountain bike event at Eastnor Castle.
Emily, Sam and Charlie were the lucky girls who got to stand in the mud and cheer on the competitors. The atmosphere was brilliant, despite the weather, which made for a fantastic weekend all round. No.40 arrived at the event on Friday morning to be told that even driving the van to the pitch would be tricky, so we knew then we were in for an eventful few days. The tent went up and the sunglasses came out as the rain came down.
By far the best sellers of the weekend were the Sunwise Windrush with three sets of interchangeable lenses, as all the riders were wearing some sort of eye protection to keep the mud and dirt out of their eyes. The race started at noon on Saturday and it soon became clear that the track was a lot tougher than expected due to the conditions, so we want to say a huge congratulations to all the riders who completed a lap, it was a big achievement!
The No.40 girls were offering a professional cleaning service for rider’s eyewear; it got rid of a little bit of mud at least!
The mud definitely didn’t put us off; we’ll see you again next year!
