“We are delighted to be able to confirm the dates for the 2016 British Cycling Downhill Series. The series was a huge success in 2015 with some great racing and fantastic crowds. The 2016 series will take in some of the biggest mountain bike venues across the country and showcase some of the best riders in the world”. – Jonathan Day, Cycle Sport Manager, British Cycling
The series will visit the Revolution Bike Park in Powys for the very first time. Situated just over the Welsh border at the foot of Snowdonia National Park, the trails are set in 100 acres of woodland and include over 300 metres of vertical descent.
