Shimano Singletrack Classic Weekender – The Downhill Video

May 18, 2011

Much like how the Trials round of the Classic Weekender sounds a lot more daunting than it really is, so too it can be with the Downhill course. But there’s nothing to scared of. Having said that, good riders will have a blast!

This year we’re not going to give too much away about the exact location of Downhill course as we don’t want people pre-riding it as it needs a bit of work at the mo. Suffice to say it’s going to be of a similar style to last year’s course, with lots of line options throughout (faster but harder lines and easier but slower lines basically).

Riders of all abilities will be able to get from the start gate to the finish line without getting off. Skilled riders will be rewarded by taking the trickier lines. Less confident riders won’t be crashing or carrying their bikes down anything. All riders will have fun.

To give you an idea of the type of stuff that the Downhill will involve check out these videos of last year’s course (courtesy of Ed “Great Rock” Oxley and Brant “Ragley Bikes” Richards)…

The Singletrack Classic Weekender takes racing back to the old school, combining a downhill race, trials competition and a cross country race all on the same weekend – and all on the same bike.

It’s not all about the racing though – the main aim is to have a fun weekend with like minded people. To that end we’ve got demo bikes, evening entertainment, communal camping and much more.

It’s all happening on the 9-10th July, Lee Quarry, Lancashire so get your..
