Can’t beat a bit of pump tracking.
Live this Saturday from Bristol, the DMR pump track challenge! Watch it live on Dirt tomorrow to catch all the action and give you support/heckles in the comments!
We had a chat to organiser, Chris Roberts:
The DMR Bikes Pump Track Challenge is great for rider and crowd participation so it’s easy to see how this will become one of the great fun events on the calendar. If you’re feeling a bit handy then there will be loads of prizes for the people that set the fastest time around the track. Although there’s obviously no pedalling allowed it’s still going to be a proper trial of strength and endurance as well as bike handling. If that’s not enough, Monster Energy will be joining us for the race to fuel the riders for free. They’ll be on site with the amazing Monster Energy truck and will be handing out drinks for free.

All racers are then re-seeded with fastest going last like a DH race.
