BikeRadar video of the week: Gawton downhill, Devon

The South West's newest downhill venue

Three new downhill tracks will be officially opened at Gawton in Tavistock, Devon, UK on 11 April. 


Local trail building group the Woodland Riders received a £50,000 lottery grant and set about building the new trails with the help of Rowan Sorrell. He’s the man behind the epic Cwmcarn and Rheola downhill runs, Brechfa freeride section and Glyncorrwg Energy section.

We visited Gawton earlier this week and were impressed with the riding on offer. Here’s our video from the day, presented by Mountain Biking UK’s Ric McLaughlin. Hopefully it’ll give you a flavour of the great riding on offer at Devon’s newest downhill venue.
