The 2017 Yeti Sportive

The Yeti

January 15 2017
Dyfed, Wales, UK

The Yeti is brand new for 2017 and offers a course that will challenge the best of riders regardless of the time of year, but held in January it will be a serious challenge. Not for riders who are scared of a bit of wind or water (or snow?) the route will reward riders with fantastic views that make the climbs worthwhile. Include the well known climb of Devil's Elbow, but also other even more difficult climbs such as Mynydd Epynt and the stunning Bwlch Cerrig Duon.

The Yeti has been created to challenge the best riders at a time of year where inclement weather is very likely. Conditions may include rain, hail, snow, ice, strong winds, standing water and sub zero temperatures. Anyone entering the event must understand that poor weather is likely and MUST be prepared. A minimum kit list may be put in place and riders will be expected to dress in a way that is suitable for the conditions on the day. In very severe, extreme weather conditions (e.g. Snow blocked or flooded roads) the organisers reserve the right to change the course if required. If this occurs the event will maintain the "tough" ethos, do not expect a walk in the park, or the forecast is a bit of rain.

You have been warned!
