I have just entered a race from a different series and I would just like to say once again thank you for including so many women’s categories in your races. I hope one day that people like me won’t need to thank event organisers for including all our categories as it will have become the norm

About Us

We Are On A Mission

Its simple really, more people riding bikes to improve peoples' lives through awesome events. Thats it.

Who We Are

Allow us to introduce ourselves— we're Richard and Sara Bunting, the driving force behind Western Bike Events. Coming at you straight from the heart of South Wales—which, if you ask us, is the best mountain biking turf south of the Scottish Border—we're on a mission. But not just any mission; we're veteran-owned and steeped in the values of camaraderie, resilience, and passion. Our goal? To share the adrenaline-pumping joy of off road cycling with as many people as possible, while serving up top-notch events you won't forget.

Our Philosophy

Look, it ain't just about clinching that top spot on the podium. Nah, it's about the sheer thrill of racing between the tapes, sketchy turns, mud on your face. It's about shredding down the mountain and then gassing about your times with your mates. At Western Bike Events, we're all about creating a community where everyone can enjoy the ride, from the seasoned pros to the fresh-faced newbies. And you can count on us to bring a bit of military precision to the mix, making sure every event is run like clockwork.

Meet the Team

Richard Bunting - Director

The fella who's juggling all the balls at once, from trail-building to event planning. Richard's been knee-deep in the MTB scene since '06, and he's a man of many hats—organiser, marshal, coordinator. Cut his teeth racing UKGE on a proper shonky Trek Fuel, but that's all it took for the enduro bug to take a chomp. Oh, and did we mention he spent 23 years in the British Army as a senior engineering manager? That's right, you're in safe hands with Richard.

Sara Bunting - Co-Director

Sara, or Mrs WBE as we like to call her, is the first face you'll see on race day, managing everything at the HQ like a boss. She's mad keen on outdoor sports and has even tackled the Three Peaks and run a few half marathons, so she knows her stuff. With 15 years in the Army as a combat medical technician—plus a trophy case of awards for life-saving exploits—she's the backbone that keeps this operation running smoothly.
