Chris Roberts sent over a heads up about the Caersws Cup Rd 3 this weekend.

Today is the last day to pre-enter but you can still enter on the day.

(I'll add a link to the series overall points when I can find one)

The 2010 Astrix – Mojo CAERSWS CUP Rd3 this weekend.

Caersws still remains as one of the best downhill venues in the country and now with all the trees cut down its even better place to ride with the 5 new courses including a new National downhill course there is an amazing choice of tracks to ride.


Weather is going to be Sunny, it's time to hit the bone dry tracks and switch backs at Caersws & a good chance to get extra practice in before the English Champs in August.

Race organiser Chris Roberts said, “Caersws is the perfect for place for the series, the best uplift in the country equals more time blasting down the five exciting courses".

The entry fee has been frozen at the 2009 price of £55 and includes free camping and Team Pits next to the finish line.

There will be trade stands, live commentary & great food for everyone to enjoy.


Following each race there will be Video highlights film produced for the web & there will be a DVD made for the end of series.


Great prizes again this year Astrix Havoc DH Frame, Fox 40’s, E13 Chain device & Spank goodies.

Caersws is a private forest used for regional and national races over the past 5 years, we ran the first race at Caersws in 2003 which was won by Marc Beaumont,
