The Mini Downhill series at the Forest of Dean continues to grow in size and popularity. It’s the perfect way to test your downhill skills in a fun and relaxed race environment.
The format includes a timed practise run, followed by a second final run on one of their famous trails. The aim of the series is to encourage new riders to fall in love with racing, and to bring people together for a day of riding bikes, and winning prizes.
This year there are 4 female categories to enter: women’s youth, women’s vet, women’s senior, women’s master. This ensures you’re riding with women within your age range, providing a more variety and scope for competition.
