MTB trail opening 10-12-16. Hamsterley. mountain bike, active





Mixed abaility trail bike race organised by Hamsterley Trailblazers to raise funds for more trail building and to develop youth racing.

This is a down hill time trial suitable for mountain bikes only. The course will use the new K-line trail and will include the accelerator and nitrous sections of trail to make for over 5 mins of racing.

The event format will be to practise in the morning and then complete 2 timed race runs in the afternoon with fastest run counting.

Keen to encourage young racers there will be a cheaper light option which will use a shorter track including some of k-line and there will be a practise in the morning and one timed run in the afternoon.
