Event Summary

Event Overview

This is NDH's 1st Mini DH at Chopwell woods. It will take in the Powerline trail and is supported by Scott Mears and his shop CycleFix. To add a little extra to the event NDH are donating the equivalent of the prize RRP to the Joyce Gibbons Family in honor of Eileen Joyce Gibbons. The family will be donating the fee to a charity of thier choice in memory of Eileen.

A Mini DH allows competitors of 10 years old to have a go at DH style racing. Ever mindful of the growing wave of "Enduro" riders the trail will also be suitable for trail bikes. In fact any bike from hardtail to DH rig will be suitable for this event. We require a full face helmet for you, working brakes and end pugs in your bars. These are all insurance stipulations. all other armour is upto you.
