2011 Halo British Downhill Series
The 2011 Halo BDS sells out in hours.
In just 60 hours entries to this years Halo BDS had sold out that's even faster than for a Lady Gaga concert.
Here's what organiser Si Paton had to say:
Would you Adam and Eve it? Entries for the Halo British Downhill Series went live at midnight on New Years Eve and as the clocks struck twelve, it wasn't only the bells that got a hammering.
Sixty hours later and were full to the brim and bursting! We stayed up until 04:00am to answer frantic calls and e-mails regards registration. Tonight they are open again, this time as a counselling service for hundreds of distraught riders...
Riders from outside the U.K have heard the call and entered from far away as Finland, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and South Africa!
A thousand apologies if you couldn't get a race entry, at least you can come and enjoy the whole weekend for free as a spectator as there is no charges for camping, parking or spectating.
Just check out the stacked Elite field, we have left a few places spare in there for the top flight World Cup racers that are still finalising their schedule. What we can say is round three at Glencoe the week before the Fort William World Cup will be a who's who in the World of DH MTB.
Please note there is no reserve list so stop calling us, we need to go to bed!
