The Taxco Urban DH is This Weekend
Finn Isles is 15, the day after the Spank Whip Off at Crankworx Canada was his birthday. Still an amazing world class rider, even at 15!!

2015 British Downhill Series Dates Announced
Monster haven't brought a truck to a BDS for over 2 years now. The reason we can't use Gawton is because there is no where to pit and park 500 plus cars, let alone a big finish area for all the riders and pro teams. Ladies, Lets stick to the facts: We have the best national DH series in the World (I would say that). Think yourself lucky that you can get anywhere in the UK within a day. Many countries National series means they have to fly: Canada, America, Australia etc.. or drive for a few days if not more! It's £75.00 to race all rounds, not £80 to ride Moelfre. Show me a good venue in England and we will go there. I live in Birmingham so a trip to England would be nice! We have gone for the best tracks out there (Rheola were struggling for an uplift coach company to use). It's not been called BCF for almost ten years now. It's called BC - British Cycling. Call it what you want, entries open January 3rd 09:00 so if you are prepared to travel (It's a National series) and you want to race against the best on the best tracks, you know where we will be.

Interview: Manon Carpenter - 2014 DH World Champion
2015 UCI prize money for World Champs, World Cups and World Cups overall will be equal between both men and women. The Hors Cat, Cat1, Cat2 etc.. guidelines state the men will be paid more. Of course that is only a guideline. No one can argue that in this day and age the men should be paid more than the the women. For example as an organiser myself of the BDS. If we matched the women's prize money to the men's. Over the series that would cost an extra £3k. We already give away over £10k in cash. To find that shortfall the extra funds would need to come from somewhere: sponsors, riders, spectators..
