Prepare for the biggest party in British mountain biking. A packed weekend of challenging and exciting events including flat-out racing and the demo weekender. Riders of all ages and abilities can race and have fun in a chilled out family atmosphere..
Bring your bike!
Eastnor Deer Park is a beautiful venue and we openly encourage you to go for ride outs. All of the courses when not in use for either practice or racing will be open for you to ride. For example, once the Dual Slalom event finishes on Friday evening, we will re-open it from Saturday morning onwards, ensuring the courses are manned with marshals and medics, for you to ride. All of this at no additional cost.
Racing? Take your pick of what you fancy entering whether you are a seasoned racer or a newbie first timer to the start gate.
