Regional races offer an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the thrilling world of downhill racing. These races serve as a stepping stone before taking on the Nationals, allowing you to gain valuable experience and build your skills. What's even more exciting is that many of these regional races take place in the same locations as the Nationals, meaning you might just catch a glimpse of some World Cup level racers.
To make your journey to the top even more convenient, we provide uplifts as part of your entry fee. These uplifts ensure that you and your bike effortlessly reach the summit, ready to conquer the exhilarating downhill course. And the best part? Most venues offer open camping spaces, attracting riders from all corners of the UK. So not only do you get to compete in a thrilling race, but you also get to connect with like-minded individuals.
Regional and National races span over two days, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the racing atmosphere. The beauty of regional races is that you don't require a race licence, although having one brings numerous benefits. Nationals, on the other hand, are exclusively for licence holders, showcasing the pinnacle of downhill racing. Rest assured, we have your back every step of the way.
