Round 6 - Race Information: Just 1 week to go until the final round. Entries close midnight Wednesday. On the Day entries will be available.
The category trophies are all finished, 3D printed from 90% recycled plastic with a log base made from fallen branches at Potash.
There will be 2 raffle draws made. One at the Under 9/12 prize presentation and the other after the Main race prize presentation. Please take a raffle ticket when you sign-on, its free and open to anyone that raced, Marshaled and or helped out. Prize draws over £4000
Preparation for the 2020 series is already underway. I have developed a RFID chip timing system used in conjunction with your number boards. There will also be a app for both iphone and Android with living timing, results will be ready 10 seconds after you cross the line (subject to final confirmation). I will be testing it at the final round to collect live data for testing ready for next year (but not using it for results). There is also a new video capture for back-up purposes, this will be in use for all the categories. New course features are also planned hopefully featuring a new bridge you will be able to go over and under.
Dual Slalom - This year will be based in the woods, if you can ride the pallet jump you will have no issues. Its turned into more of a short track, XC, Dual Slalom thingy. i.e. 2 rider will go on either track, then swap tracks and the fastest combined time will go through to the next round. Its free to enter with limited spaces, https://www.traversbikes.com/store.html#!/Travers-MTB-Series-2019/c/15746940/offset=0&sort=addedTimeDesc There will be an Under 9 and 12 version, this will just be a bit of fun and we will run after the prize presentation, also free, no need to enter this.
Some frustrating news: I have had my van broken into and all of the course equipment used to prepare the track has been stolen. Thanks to Lesley Pearce for the lend of the Leaf Blower the race can go ahead.

Dual Slalom Information (14th July) The Dual Slalom will be different this year. It will be a XC Dual Slalom based on the Pallet jump..so if you can ride that then you will have no problem. A 2nd track has been created next to it and the course has been extended much further up the hill (and round the corner - towards the back straight). The idea is to create close racing but in a less intimidating setting.
Its free to enter for all categories! The races will take place after the Series Prize presentation (done as soon after the main race is finished as possible) Timings will be posted next week.
You can enter online now for Male and Female Juvenile, Youth, Junior, Senior, Veteran and Grand/Super Veteran Categories. There are limited places available.
There will be an under 9 and 12 races based on a shorter course. These will be held after the U9 and 12 XC Races. You do not need to pre-enter them.
