These are provisional Series and Club Champs dates for 2024. I have already checked with other local organisers etc and events and there are no clashes, so 99% certain these will be the dates.
The Club champs return for 2024, for anyone who has not ridden them before the idea is we run a 1hr race and set rider off in their clubs/teams, its that one race a year where everyone no matter what age or catergory you ride in you get a chance to race against teams mates. We also have plans to extend the Club Champs to a longer day event with a bike jumble/shop stalls and other fun events like dual slalom, short track etc this is to be confirmed.
(CONFIRMED AND OPEN 01/01/24)
R1 - 14th April 24
R2 - 28th April 24
R3 - 19th May 24
Club Champs - 2nd June 24
R4 - 9th June 24
R5 - 23rd June 24
R6 - 7th July 24
We have been over Potash this morning to check out the trails and possible different layout and track options. Hopefully phase 1 will be ready for round 1 with a new switch back section near the start that can be used for both the U/9/12 and adults plus a few changes to current trails with new berms and extended technical A lines.
Race dates have been submitted for approval to the land owner, as soon as these have been confirmed I will let everyone know and entries will go live in the New Year.
Plans are also in place to reintroduce the Club Championships, this will be a standalone event with some additional as yet to be announced add ons.
Thanks to Dave Walker for this amazing video of round 6 of the Travers MTB video.
To allow all parents to get in a practise lap and still make it back for the U7/9/12 prize presentation we have moved the adult races back 20 minuites for round 6. All the adult prizes will be prsented at the end of the event with winners Jerseys by Epic Custom Kit.
