Entries are now open for the 2020 Ashcombe Mini Downhill!

8 January 2020  |  

Back for 2020! After the success of the 2019 Ashcombe Mini Downhill, we are back for more racing action in the South West on April 26th.

Ashcombe Mini Downhill

Same format as last year, all about having fun and racing bikes on a short but sweet course. Designed with more of an old-school natural vibe, expect lots of off-cambers, ruts and plenty of roots. Oh, and don't forget the loam. The course will be similar to last year but with a slightly extended bottom section, to push the fastest time over the minute mark.

All the normal British Cycling age categories apply, please remember that you must enter in the age group of the year of your birthday. For example, if you are 15 in July but the race is in May, you must enter the Youth 15-16 age category, not Juvenile 13-14. Any questions on which category to enter, feel free to email us.


Racing will be based on two race runs with your fastest counting, our timing will be provided by the super reliable team behind the Gawton races. We will have live results on-screen at the top and bottom of the course.
