« on: Aug 25, 2010, 21:29 »
Rd4 DH Race this Sunday -

After a long summer break we're back with round four of the DH race summer series. The track this race will be BIG GRIN in it's entirety - we've been very busy building some new lines including new jumps, berms and even a fast hip jump. Some parts will defiantly get used in the race track the others depend on the weather for the rest of this week - watch this space....

Also a reminder that we NO longer offer camping at the park so please make alternative plans if you want to camp - the Inside Park is proper camp site located just outside of Blandford and only a five min drive to the park call 01258 453719 http://www.theinsidepark.co.uk/

Ukbikepark will be hosting our 2010 five round summer race series with the most stunning prizes and best atmosphere ever! Every round will count towards accumulating UKBP points which will put you in the running to win a Apple iPad or iTouch (we're giving away X 9 iTouch's!), a week in les Gets for 4 people and even a new 4X frame. Every round will have Saturday & Sunday uplift service, BC ranking points, NEW Ripper & Expert category, camping from Friday evening, round two incorporates the Southern Champs with double BC points, NEW PA & music system, TAG Timing & NEW race start clock, NEW metal trophies for the top 3 in every category, different track for every round all of which will utilise the awesome NEW features & trails we've been constructing, on-site hot & cold refreshments plus a chance for anyone to win massive prizes such as a week in Les Gets & 4X Frame our number board raffle at the final round.

Yes fast flowy with lots of little jumps and binks - we've finished the middle section today - awesome fast berm action with a big hip/doubles and other bits throw in - it's going to be SOOOOO much better!!!  :P

Like the sound of the new track mods.  Any update on the conditions at the park, i.e. Wet Screams, High Rollers or somewhere inbetween?  Thanks.

We had a really good soaking over the last few days but it's not made the park as wet as you'ld think. If it stays dry (forcast looks really good for the weekend) I reckon it will be dry hard pack by Sunday - keep those fingers crossed!
