Round 2 - Kinsham 2019

The Pearce Cycles Downhill Series is a British Cycling Regional A Ranking Series.  It sits one level below the HSBC UK National Downhill Series so is a good introduction to racing.  You don't need a British Cycling licence to race our series, but we'd recommend you look at the benefits of British Cycling membership.

We welcome all age groups of riders from 13 upwards. Our courses are designed to both be challenging for elite riders as well as allowing novice riders to get down safely with a smile on their faces.

You can also use any form of Downhill, Enduro or Trail bike of your choice to compete on. This season will see the introduction of a Trail bike sub category within each main category. To be eligible for this you need any form of single crown forked bike and when you sign on on the day of the event, tick the box to include yourself in the category. There will then be a medal for the fastest trail bike in each category on the day and then a series prize at the end of the year. This is on top of standard category result and points allocation.


For this race weekend only there will be two different courses to race.  Each course will act as one round of our series and you'll receive series points for both. British Cycling ranking points will only be awarded for Course 1.  Our usual event schedule applies for this round and is available here, but with the following changes.



9.30am-4.30pm: Both courses will be open for practice, you can choose which to ride but must complete at least two runs on each course.


8.30am-10.30am: Both courses will again be open for practice.

You will have two timed runs on each course, so four runs in total - your category will determine which course you race first. 

Course 1 (Round 2) Morning timed run starts at 11.00am with Juvenile, Youth, G.Vet, Veteran & Women then repeated.

Course 2 (Round 3) Morning timed run starts at 11.00am with Master, Junior, Senior, Expert & Elite then repeated.


Following a short break, you will complete your two runs on the other course in the afternoon.


Coles Hill Wood, Kinsham, Nr Presteigne, LD8 2HN.

The venue will be signposted off the B4362 Shobdon to Presteigne road. Turn off the B4362 in Combe then follow event signs to Kinsham. Please note that some of the other routes into Kinsham are quite narrow if you have a large vehicle.
