Get your entries in now for the Antur Stiniog DH Fest which kicks off on the 13th/14th of July.

This sounds like it's going to be a great weekend of racing, partying, riding, drinking, dancing, and riding some more. And it's only 50 quid for the weekend. Should be awesome!

If you've been to Antur Stiniog (at hard to pronounce, Blaenau Ffestiniog) before you'll know that the tracks are great and the uplift is super quick. Also the visitor centre will be up and running by race time with a café, bike wash, showers etc. What more could you want?

Hit up to enter.
