MIJ Downhill Events Press Release, 4th March 2010-03-04
The boys are back. MIJ Downhill Events are at it again, this year they have a 5 race series and are working with some other businesses and clubs to put on a few more races during 2010. Details of these will be released as soon as possible.
They have only been around for little more than a year, but already have enjoyed fantastic support from downhill riders and racers from near and far.
Also the support that has been given by Don Skene Cycles of Cardiff has been invaluable. Every member of the shop have been 100% behind MIJ and will once again be supporting the 2010 race series with prizes for the winners and support for the racers with bike mechanics and a shop of spares parts available for those in need of a bit of help.
MIJ are the team that have redeveloped the Taff Buggy venue in South Wales. All the guys at MIJ have been involved in the sport for many years and want to give something back to the sport that they all enjoy so much. A lot of their time is spent working on tracks and doing all important maintenance throughout the year.
2010 sees the start of the MIJ DH Race Team, where they are supporting two riders, Dan Bowen rides in Youth and Mark Jenkins in Masters. These two have been a great support to MIJ over the last year, so were the obvious choice when choosing two riders to support in the future.
The 5 round race series venues are.
13th & 14th March, Taff Buggy
17th & 18th April, Taff Buggy
19th & 20th June, Moelfre Hall
31st July & 1st August, Taff Buggy
4th & 5th September, Caersws
Postal entry forms and online entries are available at www.mijdownhillevents.co.uk
The major focus for MIJ is to offer a great racing experience in a relaxed and fun environment. Some racers have quoted the 2009 series, which included the Welsh Champs as the best of the year and if their first year of races is anything to go by 2010 should be even better.
