Wales to welcome British National Downhill Championships


Pubslished: 5 December 2012

Wales is to welcome the British National Downhill Championships, in Llangynog, near Bala in 2013.

Dozens of Britian's most exciting downhill riders are expected to enter the event, run by Boderline Events over the weekend of the 20 and 21 July 2013.

Llangynog is well known for resting at the foot of the Milltir Cerrig - Welsh for "Mile of Stones" - a mountain pass in Wales which crosses the Berwyn mountain range.

Surrounded by moorland and mountains, it offers challenging terrain for downhill riders, and sets an exciting scene for a National Championship.  

Welsh Cycling MTB Coach Scott Bugden, said: "Wales has some of the most exciting terrain for downhill riding, so it's great to see a National Championship come here.

"It's great for the local community too. Downhill mountain biking is fast and challenging and I'd recommend to anyone to go and catch a glimpse if you get the chance."  

The event has secured the highly reputable uplift services provided by Dave at Pearce Cycles and that of Revolution Bike Park along with the timing service provided by Sports Timing Systems.

Entries will open via British Cycling’s online entry system on the 14 December at 9am.

Initially, entries will be open to those with 50 British Cycling ranking points or more and from the 1 February, for anyone with one British Cycling ranking point or more.

Further information about Boderline Events and event entries can be found on the British Cycling website.
