Information about the races

The race series will be held in Glentress Forest, racing on a mixture of man-made trails and fire roads making up an exciting short fast circuit for riders and spectators alike. This year the series kicks off with a pre-series event for kids who want to take part in Tweedlove on Thursday 26th May. The rest of the series consists of 6 races taking place over 6 summer evenings starting in June and finishing in August. All circuits will be closed to the public for the short duration of the races.

The event will be run from the Buzzards Nest car park where registration and bike checks will take place from 5-6pm. To ensure the smooth running of each event we ask parents to make sure kids are signed in and have their bikes checked early , especially under 8’s riding in the first race so we can get started on time.

More information and registration can be found on the British Cycling Website using the links in above. You can also come along and enter on the night.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday 26th May 2015 for a fantastic night of racing fun.
