Urban downhill heading for Newcastle

Stars riding include Steve Peat, Will Longden and Helen Gaskell

A new urban downhill event, the Newcastle Jam, is being staged by UK bike shop 4Mountains.co.uk.

Some 450 riders are expected to attend the dual downhill street race in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Riders confirmed so far include Steve Peat, Will Longden, Neil Donoghue and Helen Gaskell.

The race will consist of two practice runs before a head-to-head knockout race. The winner of each race will go through to the next round.

All entrants will receive a crate of Rockstar Energy drink and Fox goodies.

Tickets are £65 and a share of the price will go towards the Stephen Murray charity. Stephen is a BMX rider who was paralysed from the neck down following a crash.
