BDS Round 2 This Weekend!

The Halo British Downhill Series makes a return to Fort William this weekend with 350 of the World’s fastest racers are booked in to tackle the toughest course on the World Cup circuit. Over 70 Elites are booked to race, aiming to stop GT’s Marc Beaumont in his tracks after his run away success at round 1 in Combe Sydenham. Giant’s Danny Hart has been on track since Wednesday, getting in early practice before the likes of Peaty, Bryceland, Beaumont, Bond, Smith, Lehikoinen, Buchanan, Cunningham and many more get stuck in.

Grab a chance to get autograph signings and photo opportunities with UCI World Champion Danny Hart who will be at the opening proceedings on Sunday at 10:50am, before he races! The course is probably the toughest on the World Cup circuit and will be physically and technically challenging and your race run will be between on average 5-7minutes long.
