    Racing for London B this year, but a friend in the A team is a bit worried. He reckons its very technical and I’m going to catch him.
    Anyone know what its going to be like?

    It’s not technical.

    The MK Bowl is an amphitheatre so it uses the off camber sides of the bowl a fair bit.
    The top of the bowl or the rim is tree lined with steep descents droping through them. However the circuits usually have you riding or running up them.
    It’s tough but not technical.
    I don’t have a BC licence only LVRC so I won’t be riding this one.

    This one shows it well, but the steepness isn’t captured.

    You drop in and out of the trees at the top

    That looks quite an interesting circuit. Think I might need my 39-28 though.

    Last year the course iirc was only in the Bowl itself. Under BC regs the bits thru the trees are too narrow i think.
    So lots of off camber tricky corners on the grass
    Oh and some steep bits 😉

    The centre part of the Bowl is very cut up after a summer concert so prob won’t use much of the flat centre part.

    I was training there last night and as you’d expect its currently very wet and the off camber stuff, especially where they’ll no doubt have tight turns, will be very slippery.
