The British National Downhill Championships which take place in Rhyd Y Felin, North Wales on July 19 and 20, have a number of entries slots still available. It’s an event that’s worth considering for riders who pick up ranking points.
The National Champs in July promises to be bigger and better with the race arena packed with trade stands, team pits and a spectacular six metre high road bridge made from scaffolding to launch riders into the finish arena.
Race categories for this year’s event are in line with the UK’s National Points Series: Juvenile,
Youth, Junior, Veteran, Master, Senior, Expert and Elite but with the following changes:
Expert and Elite riders must all ride in the Elite category however Expert riders will receive ranking points based on their finishing position within their own Expert category.
The Senior category is a non-championship event, so no official British Cycling medals or jerseys will be awarded. If a senior rider wishes to compete for the National Championship title they may ride in Elite but are no longer eligible for Senior rankings points.
The National Championships is a category C ranking event, and is therefore the most important on the domestic racing calendar.
Please note that there is no Open category. All riders must have a British Cycling race licence and a minimum of five national ranking points.
