Located at Top Barn Activity Centre just outside Worcester, racing resumes this Sunday in the Back on Track Bash series.

This fantastic and popular venue provides a good mix of flat grassland and fireroad with some technical singletrack and switchback climbs on its 5km circuit. Developed by experienced riders, the trails used deliver a course that is challenging to regular racers but still fun and rideable for all.
