The series Kicked off on March the 11th at Froyle Quarry and is running over 5 months with races being held at both Froyle Quarry and Rogate!

Round 1 - Froyle Quarry - 11th March

Round 2 - Rogate Downhill - 1st April

Round 3 - Froyle Quarry - 5/6th May

Round 4 - Rogate Downhill - 3rd June

Round 5 - Froyle Quarry -  1st July



Not only that but we've managed to scrape together a great collection of prizes culminating in a set of Mavic Deemax Ultimates for the overall winner! And of course there'll be plenty of the Gravity Projects famous Honey!

We've got Mikrotime providing the timing, Bowtell Farm shop cooking up some great food and Crank Cycles on hand with plenty of spares and mechanical assistence.

We did a track walk this evening and as anticipated the race line was dry with the odd small puddle! Even after all the rain this place is so free draining!!

Hey Jake, yeah I'd probably be looking at running a cut down spike to help shift mud but still roll ok.

Is it possible to just turn up and enter on the day?
I've never raced before, but it sounds like a good day out.

Yes thats fine to do, I think cut off time is 11am, not 100% on that though.

Well worth doing though.
