The series provides a brilliant opportunity for youngsters to try their hand at mountain bike racing where they are given points for their finishing position; as well as upon completion of different skills challenges.
The Go Race Mountain Bike series 2018 starts on Sunday 18th March at 2pm in the scenic setting of Nant Gwrtheyrn, in a magical place located in a former quarrying village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales.
The course winds its way through the forest surrounding the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre and uses part of the Downhill track used in National Series.
Signing on and course practise is from 1:00pm with racing starting at 2pm.
With previous winners having progressed to National races and even the Welsh & British Talent Pathways, the series provides a brilliant platform for youngsters to gain racing experience at grassroots level.
From the woods of Betws y Coed and Coed y Brenin, to the slate quarries of Llanberis, the 2018 series will provide challenging, fun races on varied terrain. The series will be hosted by a handful of the region's clubs including Clwb Beicio Dwyfor, Clwb Beicio Mynydd Dyffryn Conwy & Dreigiau Coed y Brenin.
