Racing is back at Ukbikepark for 2012/13 with 6 rounds of Downhill, 4 rounds of enduro/XC plus some night races. The races will attract not only BC points, but our own Ukbikepark points for every round (DH/XC/Enduro) leading to some exciting prizes at the end of all the series. We're also looking into having a Southern Champs Series at the top riding areas in the South to crown a overall Southern Champ (details to follow). DH race weekends will all feature two days of practice and racing, Saturday will be unofficial practice with the track marked out, Sunday will be practice and race. Camping is back on for the first round from Friday of the race weekend - see details below

In the newly improved cabin hot food is available all day from 8am to 9pm including breakfast baps, panini/chips/jacket potatoes, choc, tea/coffee selection of evening meals and of course Mums Cake! We also have our own mini bike shop stocking essential spares and body armour. Saturday & Sunday will have the scratch free mega fast uplift service for racers and normal uplifters, Ripper, female & Expert category's, PA & music system, TAG Timing & race start clock, trophies for the top 3 in every category, and fun filled evening! Dates and details of the UKBP XC & Enduro races plus how the points system works will be published shortly - prize fund will be announced as the series progresses.

Sunday Race day £30 including morning practice with uplift, number board, two timed runs and trophy for top three in all category's. Online entries close on Friday 9th Nov 2012

Please Note - Bar ends, Full face helmets, Gloves and a bike which complies with BC rules are needed to race at the park. From 2013 we will be ruling that all under 18's MUST wear body armour when racing and strongly recommend that all others riders do as well. There are tons of stone age knife's in the ground (Flint) which can cause nasty injury's - we see many avoidable accidents due to lack of protection - so please wear it!
