The aim for 'season-ender' event is to raise money for Jason Brennan and Air Ambulance.
Jason from Rave Racing has been a regular at our races for many years. Unfortunately last year he suffered a broken back as a result of a crash at Caersws. We hope to help Jason purchase a Thera trainer which attaches to his wheelchair to help him exercise.
We've needed to call upon the services of the Air Ambulance in the past so will also be making a donation towards their operating costs.
The event is open to all riders. It will be the Midland Downhill Championships for riders who hold a British Cycling race licence from either the West Midland or East Midland regions.
From A49 at Craven Arms. Turn onto B4368 signposted Clun. In approx. 2 miles turn left onto B4367 signposted Knighton. Drive through Clungunford to Hopton Heath. Turn right, over railway bridge and then immediately left towards Hopton Castle. Follow narrow road to Hopton Castle. PLEASE DRIVE WITH CAUTION HERE. Turn left by the castle and follow MTB Race signs along Bedstone Lane to parking field on your right side.
