Chain Reaction Cycles, Europe’s largest online cycle shop and already title sponsor of the official British Cycling National Downhill Series have now taken over the unique NPS “Grand” competition.
Last year, Slovenian bike brand Elan put up a £1,000 prize to be shared between all riders who won all their class at all six rounds of the series. Only juvenile category rider Danny Hart of Balfa, U.K. won his class at all six rounds so took home the whole grand for himself! With Elan going into receivership earlier this year NPS promoters would have been unable to run the competition in 2006 if not for Chain Reaction's help.
The next round of the series is at Innerleithen in Scotland in mid May. Check the series Web site for details - www.npsdownhill.co.uk.
