A short history of Boltby Bash
It was one of the first and biggest mountain bike xc races back in the early nineties. With Steve Peat and co. cutting there teeth on it.
Despite lots of efforts by other organisers to get access and bring the Boltby Bash back, the only way was for two MB mates, one the local blacksmith, who knew all the private landowners and all the local MTB trails, and the other who also new every route in area and came up with the idea of an Enduro on private land for stages.
The Boltby Bash Enduro was born. 250 racers first year. 500 last year and gaining in popularity as a classic Enduro experience.
