After a successful first year of racing, Ukbikepark are bringing you more events in 2008 in conjunction with Royal Racing and Torico Performance BicyclesThe bike park are seeing some major changes this year with more tracks, a new club hut, improved quicker scratch free uplifts and a 4x track. Ukbikepark are delighted to announce that Royal racing are stepping in as series sponsors for the 6 race DH series this year. This means we will have great prizes for each category first second and third place winners. The race weekends will include Saturday uplift, 4x racing on Saturday night and Sunday DH racing . Its like old school racing used to be without the xc ( or the uphill challenge and better tracks)! The usual Bikepark features will be in place so expect to see more mini bike racing, hog roasts, Djs, mini ramps and the now legendary mums cake and ukbikepark vibe. We will also be hosting demo bikes from Ironhorse Lapierre and Commencal. Torico will also be there with all the spares and bits that you could ever need.
