To celebrate a hugely successful 2013, Red Kite Events is giving you the chance to win some great cycling prizes with the launch of their all-new website and the announcement of some exciting new events for 2014. 

The new year will kick off on January 5th when the Frozen Devil MTB ride returns to Llanwrtyd Wells in Mid-Wales. This 55km, technical and demanding MTB ride starts and finishes in Llanwrtyd Wells and will take in some of the area's most scenic spots including the Crychan and Irfon Forests in the wild and beautiful Cambrian Mountains. 

As 2014 progresses, a number of new events appear on the Red Kite event schedule including a number of MTB Enduro events and some new road sportives, all taking in the very best of Welsh scenery and riding. Full details and entry details can be found on the new Red Kite website



All events are fully supported by medical teams, route marking and feed stations. As well as a range of products from sponsors High 5, you will also find home made cakes, flapjacks and Welsh cakes from Llanwrtyd Wells restaurant hot spot and Red Kite sponsor, The Drover's Rest. 

The event series is also supported by Continental tyres, Velocite bikes, Trail 42 apparel, JDRF and Muc-Off and it is thanks to these sponsors that you can win BIG with Red Kite this winter.
