The greatest mtb marathon in the Benelux

Bart Brentjens Challenge 10th

Start- en finish : Vroenhof at Eijsden (Limburg)

110 km with plenty of mud.

Sunday 5 october

5-okt Limburg BBC 2104 110Km NK marathon MTB - 10th editeled


Saturday : A Nice dry trail. But after a light rain in the night the trail quickly turns into a mud show.

Sunday : mud, mud and mud makes the trail heavy.


At 31 miles ( 50 km ) i get a burst tire .

A crack of 1 inch in the rear outer tire.

I make a quick repair with a new innertire and a reinforced by a wrapper of a biscuit from a Snelle Jelle.

A whole bunch of riders has gone by, i recon about 50 bikers before I take of again.

At about 50 miles (80 km) the tire begins to grind against the frame. There are still a lot of climb and rocky defends ahead.

When i reach the 60 mile (100 km) the grinding get louder and I am afraid the tire will blow-out any second. But suprisently I make it to the finish.

So I rode 37 miles ( 60 km ) with a wrapper of a Snelle Jelle in the tire.

After all i finished for the 10th time,

in a time of 05:43 h

Bart Brentjens did it in 04:40 h.

I see a lot of DNF on the way.

Only 400 hundred bikers of about 1000 bikers made it to the finish.
