Gtechniq MTB Retro Show n Shine is 10:00 – 15:00 0n Sunday the 27th of August. 

Entry into this competition is free to all festival-goers and is open to all bikes manufactured on or before the year 2003.

Turn up at 09:30 in the main marquee with your pride and joy/s along with a rear-wheel bike stand. 

We will then judge the bicycles down to the best ten and then the best three. 

The prize fund courtesy of Gtechniq is an eye watering:

1st place – £1,000

2nd place – £500

3rd place – £250

We have a display stand built that will securely display the winner’s bike for the rest of the day until 16:00 on the main stage.


  • The Gtechniq Retro Show and Shine is FREE to enter. You will need to purchase a festival ticket to gain admission to the site.
  • Bring as many bikes as you like!
  • Make sure your bike and all of it’s components are from the year 2003 or older.
  • In the true spirit of the Malverns, the competition is open to privateers as we want to award them for their dedication and passion. Bikes owned by manufacturers we feel are at an unfair advantage and would kindly ask that they display their bikes on their own trade/expo stands for everyone to enjoy.
  • Please bring a rear wheel stand to display your bike.
  • You are responsible for your bike and you display your bike at your own risk. We advise you to stand in front of your bike/s with the general public to allow all of the bikes to be viewed. This will also allow you to talk to any admirers of your bike and answer any questions.
  • Once the competition is over for you, we will advise you to exit the arena immediately with your bike and secure it. 
  • The judge’s decision is final.
  • The prize fund will be paid by bank transfer within ten days to the winners by bank transfer.


Good luck to everyone entering.
