Good news for Welsh DH fans, some classic tracks are back for the 2011 race season.
The WDMBA in Association with Gravity Sport LTD and Borderline Events are pleased to release the dates for its 2011 Downhill MTB Race Series.
Following on from our successful uplift service in 2009/2010, we will be using our effective rider/bike split buses to provide the uplifting service at the 2011 race events. This means that you can all stay nice and dry when transferring back to the top of the hill, which is a god send when you take into consideration our glorious Welsh weather!
The races will be held at the established Forestry Commission venues, which some of you may be familiar with from this years uplift events, and of course, the prestigious Dragon Downhill Series. With a bit of luck we hope to live up to, or maybe exceed peoples expectations from previous race series.
Although the venues are established, the courses cater for riders of all abilities with various line options available throughout all courses. Whatever your reason is for attending the series, be it for the serious competition or just to have the experience of racing DH, we will make it as fun as possible for everyone.
Next years dates and venues are as follows:
Round 1 26/27 March Rheola 1
Round 2 23/24 April Gethin
Round 3 09/10 July Mountain Ash
Round 4 24/25 September Rheola 2
Round 5 15/16 October Moelfre – Bikeworks £TBC
The entry fee is £58 for both days (practice on Saturday, Race on Sunday), which is a bargain considering the costs associated with holding events at Forestry Commission venues.
There is no hidden booking fee — the price you see is the price you pay!
We will also be continuing our uplift events in 2011. So those of you who want to can hone your skills at each venue a few weeks before the race; or you can just enter for a fun ride and have a good laugh if that’s what takes your fancy!
Timing for the 2011 race series will be provided by TRM Timing. The same guys that provided the timing for the 2010 Borderline Events and the 2010 National Championships.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
Rog, Jase & Mark @ WDMBA.
