Original source mountain mayhem

Impact Security have provided the security for the competitors and organsiers again for the 4th year running., very successful event again. Was 17 to 19 june (last weekend) at eastnor castle

“The London Marathon of Mountain Biking”
  • Began as UK’s first 24-hour mountain bike endurance event in 1998 at Trentham Gardens, created for Red Bull, with 132 riders (not teams, riders) and no soloists
  • In 1999 Mountain Mayhem moved to Sandwell Valley Park Farm, just three miles from Birmingham city centre and the Elite Womens category was created – plus a 24 minute unicycle off road course!
  • In 2000 Mountan Mayhem introduced the solo category for the first time. There were 3 entrants and Roy Hunt won with 23 laps of the 9 miles course, beating experienced endurance athletes Matt Ohran and Isaac Wilson who had flown in from the States to take part. Isaac was on his stag weekend…
  • 2003 saw new sponsors, Saab Salomon come on board for the last year at Sandwell
  • In 2004 Mountain Mayhem got too big for Sandwell and moved to the prestigious location of Eastnor Catle Deer Park in Herefordshire where it still is today
  • 2007 saw new sponsors, Giant & T-Mobile take the headline
  • 2008 Giant saved Mayhem from the brink by staying on board as headline sponsors when T-mobile pulled out of cycling sponsorship worldwide due to naughty goings-on in their Tour D’France team
  • In 2009 Original Source Mountain Mayhem was borne when the fragrant shower gel company took on the mantle of headline sponsor and gave Mayhem a fresh new look and we all smelled lovely… and still do!
  • In 2010, Mountain Mayhem had 2650 competitors and over 15,000 spectators with 45 football pitches of camping
  • Today, Mountain Mayhem is the largest and the most prestigious 24-hour mountain bike event in the world which has been the inspiration for 24-hour events around the globe

Vehicles for Security Purposes

All Mobile Patrol Security vehicles should comply with therecommendations in BS 7499:2007 Static Site Guarding andMobile Patrol Service.

Unless they are involved in covert operations or otherwise excepted under contract, operational vehicles will clearly display theorganisation’s name, badge or logo and telephone number.


1. Appropriate for intended use; if there is a requirement for specified or particular vehicles e.g. 4 wheel drive.


a) Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) vehicles use a fuel whichis both cheaper and cleaner than petrol and some manufacturers.The LPG-converted Smart car is one of the leaders in thisparticular class and certainly a vehicle to be considered.
b) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is another alternative fueland even cleaner than LPG, Volvo offer most of their range withthis option, however there are fewer than 50 filling stationsaround the country, therefore it is unlikely to be a serious contenderat the moment.
c) Electric cars have been available for some time. However,their short range still dictates that they remain largely restrictedto the role of internal perimeter run-around, but with zero directemissions at street level, they make a significant contribution to reducing pollution. However, the electricity they use demandsthem to be regularly plugged into the grid to recharge – so theycannot be regarded as entirely “green” as they are sometimesseen. Never-the-less, the electric G-Wiz – is probably the “greenestcar available” – with its 40mph top speed and a range of 40miles, is well worth considering.


Although there are not many types of hybrid car currently on salein the UK, they are probably the most practical option available– combining a small conventional petrol or diesel engine with anelectric generator/motor unit. This replaces both the traditionalstarter motor and the alternator, allowing the engine to generateelectricity to power the motor. When the motor is not being driven– when the car is going downhill or when braking heavily, forinstance – the electricity generated is diverted to top up the batterypack instead. Most of today’s production models have boththe engine and the motor connected to the car’s transmissionsystem, allowing the vehicle to run as much as possible just onelectric power and only using its internal combustion engine togive extra power when needed. Generally hybrids carry a 10 –20 per cent higher price tag than similar conventional vehicles,but they do benefit from low road tax and they do have significantlylower CO2 level emissions. Vehicles such as the HondaCivic IMA, the Lexus 400h SUV and the Toyota Prius are certainlyworth considering about.

2. Carrying a two way communications device, mobilephone or radio.

3. Inspected by the organisation Operations Managerat least once per month, and daily by the driver, toensure that they are roadworthy; checking:
