BDS Announce Dates and Venues for 2017
Only Fort William is the exact same track, though we go different in the woods each year. Llangolen has 3x BDS standard tracks.

2017 Cannondale British Enduro Series
@Kimbers: The BES website clearly says on the Enter the BES page taht the entries are £75.00 plus a £4.95 booking fee per round. BEMBA is a group of organisers, I personally created the Facebook page as well as ensure the BEMBA logo is on our number plates, podium backdrops and every page of the BES website.

BDS Announce Dates and Venues for 2017
Always happy to help: Nant G is a brand new track, Llangollen will be full woods top to bottom, first time used in 7 years. Hopton has never used for a National in over 10 years. We welcome international riders to all of our events, we had over 95 Elites back in 2015 with the likes of Brosnan and Marcelo flying in. Scotland has some great tracks but lacks big venues. Glencoe is awesome but we've been hit twice with bad weather there. Ae needed a rest from the calendar and Dunkeld has no finish arena. Inners uplift is not ideal, especially with the 1.4 mile ride along the road and the big hike to the top. Hamsterley is not long enough and Surrey Hills for a BDS? Is there a 2plus minute steep track with uplift? Il ask Brendan! Lake District is on lock down with SSI and SSSI. Anymore questions, keep them coming..

Nant Gwrtheyrn Gets a Lick of New Paint - Video
Super quick uplift on a tarmac road, great facilities onsite and two killer tracks. Round 1 of the 2017 BDS on the 1st and 2nd of April is going to be off the hook! The BDS Team are looking forward to Nant G as the season opener.

12-Year-Old Ike Klaassen Shreds Vuurberg - Video
I can vouch for this kid. Seen him riding for the last two years in Serfaus-Fis-Ladis in Austria at the iXS International Rookies Cup. Just need to get him over to a BDS when he's old enough to see how he fares against the Brits.

MTB has turned into a catwalk. People too interested in looks, MTB is going down the drain..
