The MSC Bikes/Descent-Gear British National Points Series (NPS) will kick off at the end of the month with the opening round in Ae Forest on April 25-26. Five total rounds of racing will include three UCI Category 2 events.
In the past, the series has served as a stepping stone to elite international competition for riders like Steve Peat, the Atherton family, Tracey Moseley, Josh Bryceland and others.
Each even will be held over a weekend with practice on Saturday and more practice and racing on Sunday.
