Riders will have the chance to test their skills on the 30km course which takes in Medusa’s Drop, Worry Gill and Dixon’s Hollow before breaking out of the World Cup route and continuing onto other red and black Dalby trails with a series of testing zigzags up Addersback climb.

A long, fast and rocky descent down Dargate Slack will continue to test riders before a steep technical climb up Tom Milners Grain. They will then have to carefully negotiate their way round Peat Head Rigg and rejoin the World Cup course.

Ex-British cross-country champion Nick Craig said: "It's an amazing opportunity to ride the trails and test your skills on the World Cup course. Once you've ridden it yourself, you'll realise just how good the pro riders are when you watch them smash it round the next day making it look so easy!”

Entry is £32. All riders will be timed on their World Cup lap as well as the entire Dalby Dare challenge route, and will receive a T-shirt and goody bag. For more information and to register for Dalby Dare, go to yorkshiremtbworldcup.co.uk.
