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.
With its hard compact surface and lack of hard climbs, the Marsh Track course is ideal for those new to the sport of mountain bike racing. Signing on is from 9:00 am with racing starting at 10:30am.
With previous winners having progressed to National races, winning Welsh MTB Championships and even the British Cycling Team Apprenticeship Programme, the series provides a brilliant platform for youngsters to gain racing experience at grassroots level.
