5 reasons why you should race SDA Round 5

5 reasons why you should race SDA Round 5

1) The off season is coming. It’s the perfect excuse to see your mates, get in a ride at Fort William on a top class track and make some memories.

It’s a fantastic sport that anyone can participate in. Heck, race Fort William on a […]

SDA Series Final – Fort William

They say that when it rain it pours, and when it blows a hooley in the Highlands, it does so with some bite.

SDA RD3 – Glencoe

What do you get when you combine one of Britain’s best downhill tracks and a Scotland on full chat weather wise ? One of the best weekends racing ever is what! It’s true that an unfortunate clash with the BDS at Bala created a lower entry than usual, but 133 riders experienced the chance to get in as many runs as they wanted, a traffic free track and at the end of the day, when the gate drops, the bullshit […]
