The CamelBak supported Ard Rock 2018 took place from 3rd-5th August in the stunning Swaledale area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stars of the sport including Steve Peat, Tracey Moseley and Danny Hart were all in attendance thanks to Ard Rock's amazing alpine style stages on 100% natural and rocky terrain and the festival atmosphere in the event village.
We take a look at the CamelBak products, riders and athletes that made Ard Rock Enduro 2018 so memorable...

CamelBak Hydration and Warranty Stations
CamelBak kept riders hydrated as the British heatwave of 2018 continued. Over 2000l of water were conusmed over the Saturday and Sunday at Ard Rock! CamelBak were also on hand to provide spare parts including bite valves, pure flow tubes and mud caps to CamelBak riders in need of fresh kit.
CamelBak Protection Packs
The steep, gnarly and rocky terrain of Ard Rock means a protection is a vital part of every riders set up. The KUDU and TORO packs, both featuring the highest CE-certified level of back protection, were on display. These packs were popular with riders and many noted how valuable being able to remove the back protector from the KUDU and wear it on it's own was during practice and on shorter, more intense rides.
