Teams are made up of four riders in the Open and Sport categories. The Open Men and Open Women categories can include riders of all abilities. The Mixed category for five riders must contain at least one man and one woman and is for Sport class riders only. The more relaxed ‘fun’ category 10 x 10 teams can be mixed in whatever ratio you like. Once racing begins, there can be no change to this line up. The order of racers can change, but team members cannot be substituted. Pairs (same sex or mixed as you please).


Once on course, normal mountain bike racing rules apply. This means no outside technical assistance and riders must be self-suffcient. Support from other racers on course is allowed, provided that the racer is ‘on course’ at the time. This includes swapping spares, tools and even bike parts. Food and drink can be handed to riders by anyone at any time. Before racers get on course, they can swap bikes/bits whatever, as long as the correct number board is kept with the right rider.


Due to the rapid diversification of wheel standards what is considered an acceptable bike to ride at Mayhem is ever evolving. Just remember that this is a mountain bike event and we ask that you enter in the spirit of the event and compete on a proper mountain bike; whether it be 29", 27.5", a retro 26", plus-sized or a Fat Bike. Fat Bikes must have a minimum 3.5” tyre width. No cyclo-cross bikes and no E-bikes are allowed.
