Fancy walking the track with Steve Peat at Moelfre on Friday night?
This is a prize money can’t buy and wether you are racing or not, you can join Steve Peat the current UCI Downhill World Champion as he walks the track prior to round 4 of the massive Halo British Downhill Series at Moelfre.
Steve will be showing you what lines he will be taking, where to brake, how he will be taking those corners.

How to I get onto this? Everyone is welcome except Marc Beaumont, just turn up (not in your high heals) at the top of the course at 19:00 sharp, be polite and follow the crowds!

The trail fairies have been super busy this week up at Moelfre just one hour West of Birmingham in the heart of Wales. Peaty and last weekends World Cup winner Marc Beaumont will be there. Parking, camping and spectating is free so follow me to see whats install..

Fancy watching 330 of the U.Ks finest Downhill Racers next weekend? Round 4 of the Halo British Downhill Series rolls into town on the 7th and 8th of August 2010.
With a packed field of riders and trade, team pits, Monster Energy in the house and the legendary Farmer Jack on hand all weekend, you are in for a treat.

The track is 100% open, with only one tree on the course the average speed down this course matches that of the Cresta Run. Originally designed and built by Dan and Gee Atherton we have followed their noses and added several big berms and jumps. Up top we have implanted a huge car sized kicker with a huge loose gravelly landing over 32feet away. New corners in the switchbacks and a few diversions with one hell of a finish section.

Three massive whoops in a huge rhythm section, massive berm into a kicker and a carved out berm in the rock face. Enough? No way.. Two more mooosive berms, dusted with concrete powder and a step down into the stream follwed by a 200meter finish straight more reminissance of the London Flora Marathon!

Have we wet your appetite? Then you will definately need directions, follow the signs to the race though don’t use your SatNav as Moelfre Hall where there race is, postcode doesn’t actually work: SY10 7QJ. Perhaps follow your nose just 10 minutes west of Oswestry near Llansilin along the B4580, past the Old Race Course, through Rhydycroesau and finally into Llansilin. Turn right at the 4×4 garage and after one mile turn a sharp right.
