The Monster

We have always claimed The Monster to be the UK's toughest sportive and while we firmly believed that, there were other tough events that could dispute it. Not in 2017!

200 - 300KM

The Monster is to get even harder with the 200km route remaining, complete with 4000m of climbing with the addition of a new, crazy 300km route. The new, longer route makes every other sportive look like a piece of cake with its 6500m climbing.

Starting in the town of Llandovery riders on both events will head into North Wales, taking in some spectacular roads, including the spectacular Llyn Brianne.

The 300km heads as far north as Machynlleth and the climb towards Dylife, one of the longest, hardest climbs in Wales with over 500 metres of elevation. How many will be brave enough to take on the event and how many tough enough to finish?
