This weekend sees round three of the Chain Reaction Cycles British Downhill Series at Moelfre near Oswestry in Shrewsbury on August 11-12.
The Moelfre track is one of Great Britain's best tracks for spectating as it is on an open hillside with no trees which means the riders are visible for most parts of the course. A super-fast rolling track with many high speed corners and fast straights will see speeds of 40 mph (64.4 km/h) plus achieved. Add the dangerous off camber sections where the riders will be fighting to stay online and beat the clock and the other competitors. Seeding is scheduled for Saturday, with finals for Sunday.
