Rd5 DH Race this Sunday -
This is the last round of the summer series and will be the decider for who wins the iPad and iTouch's..... We've had to change the track choice for the weekend because of unmovable wildlife moving onto the DarkSide trail!!! Therefore we'll be running Devils Dyke finishing with the road gap (love humps) at the bottom. We've already put a new line off the side of the narlly rock garden at the start to make things a bit different..... Gona be a great weekend!!
We've also got some provisional Winter DH race dates - we're currently looking at having four rounds (possibly one round held away from the park....) and hopefully uplift assisted as per summer racing. Watch this space for more updates

Rd2 28th Nov 2010
Rd3 19th Dec 2010
