On 8-9th August the ‘Ard Rock returned to Swaledale deep within the Yorkshire Dales, and transformed the sleepy village of Reeth into a buzzing festival of mountain biking. The pits were brimming with factory support from some of the best companies on the mountain bike scene, camping fields were stacked, the was atmosphere relaxed, live music was playing and beers were flowing. Well over a thousand riders signed on to challenge themselves against the brutal rocks, epic trails and newly sculptured stages on private farm and moorland.
