Just a quick plug for the West Drayton MBC/Beyond MTB XC races this Sunday and Black Park, Iver, Bucks. Black Park hasn’t been used for mountain bike racing for 15 years, but recent staffing changes have meant that West Drayton MBC has been able to negotiate a race there. There’s even talk of developing a permanent MTB trail if demand is there, which seems like reason enough to lend your support to the race.
It’s apparently a fairly flat area, but there’s good singletrack and the surfaces are hardpack, so with short two mile laps the racing should be fast and furious. There’ll be racing for all categories including a fun/beginner race. Prizes will be awarded and you can enter on the day. More details at www.westdraytonmbc.co.uk or email race organiser Chris Denman.
