Schwalbe to sponsor the Classic Downhill on Sunday the 17th of June 2018.
We are pleased to announce that Schwalbe Tyres are supporting the Malverns Classic by sponsoring the Classic Downhill. Continuing their support of events and the racers after several years working with the BDS team, we are stoked with their level of commitment and investment to British mountain biking.
Schwalbe will also be trackside both displaying and supporting riders throughout the event. Where they will be more than happy to assist you with tyre pressure, tubeless fitting, tyre choice etc..
Plus if you have any old inner tubes of tyres, rather than throw them in the skip, please pop on over to the Schwalbe stand and fill up their tyre/tube recyling bin.
Downhill mountain bike racing is the Formula 1 of the sport. Riders will race the clock as they set off at 30 second intervals down the legendary course that will see plenty of high speed action with all the thrills and spills. Please note the hill is the same size as it was 20 years ago. You are more than welcome to race on any style two wheel mountain bike that you so choose as the course is rated as entry level.
Race entries are now open at £25.00 per entry plus a £1.00 Booking Fee. You can enter by clicking HERE.
