Eight-thousand-plus people all crammed into the North Yorkshire village of Reeth for a weekend of incredible riding, live music, re-hydration, and a mutual passion for bikes at what's arguably the crown jewel of enduro events in the UK, the Ard Rock Enduro Festival.
The festival has created its own folklore with stories of tickets selling out in less than a minute. While the pace at the front is fast, there is a chill vibe to the whole weekend for those fortunate to have grabbed themselves a ticket. The Nukeproof stand and demo was bustling, and the team was stoked to meet so many Nukeproof riders.
We sent Noah and roving reporter Lando Steezy to meet up with Cai Grocott, Elliott Heap, Corey Watson, Ant Hale and Nigel Page to show off what the festival is all about.
Huge shout out to Jon Gammidge, a Nukeproof rider from the South coast of the UK. Jon rode the 350+ miles to the ARD Rock from Weymouth on his Mega PRO to raise money for his mate Mike, who has been suffering from Motor Neurone Disease. We passed some very special prizes to Jon to raffle off soon. Follow his story @jongammidge
