The intentions with Madrid International Mountainbike Network is to create a motivating training group, where people can excel on an individual level as mountainbikers and at the same time make new relations.
First priority is highly qualified mountainbike training and great experiences on the bike!
The network will train together 1-2 times a month and participate in the ‘Circuito 7 Estrella’ mountainbike events, which is a series of mountainbike races taking place in ‘Communidad de Madrid’. The races are for everyone from recreational to elite mountainbikers, and every race offers two distances to choose from, so you can choose a distance that suits your level of fitness and ambitions.

The network will take part in the following ‘Circuito 7 Estrella’ races during the 2023 season . See also MTBCircuito7estrellas.

The monthly group rides (on weekends) will target specific aspects of mountainbike training and racing, and further serve as a social event where group members can meet up and connect. Always finishing off with a cold drink and sandwich.
