UK National 24 Hour Champion Rides Ergon

In an event that resembled a cross country race in terms of the tactics used, this last weekend saw Matt Page, riding for Wiggle, take the UK National 24hr Champion’s title at the inorgral event in the Scottish borders.

As 24 hour racing gains momentum, there are a number of events that stand out. Mountain Mayhem, 24 hours of Adrenaline, SITS, and a few others. What all of these events have in common however, is that although solo riders are there and taking it seriously, they share the course with pairs teams, teams of 4 and teams of five. Many of these people are there for the festival experience of racing, not necessarily to contend places.

24hrs of Exposure is an event set to change this. For solo riders only, to prove that they had what it takes to wear the National Champion’s jersey for a year.

While Team Topeak Ergon and Ergon 24 were sadly missing from the event owning to scheduling clashes and injury, Ergon was still represented. Matt Page sported a set of Ergon GX1 on both of his team bikes (in Limited Edition White, and Team Edition Green). Matt, who has the choice to ride any products that online retailer Wiggle stocks said of Ergon “I won’t use any other grips, these are the bees knees” when he switched to them last year.

Everyone at Ergon would like to extend heartfelt congratulations to Matt for his win, and to the other winners on the day too, and all those who took part.
