Racing, events & uplifts

Uplift Day - Hopton - Sunday 13th February 2022

Updated safety protocol - We have added an emergency phone number to the wrist bands. This so you can easily contact us with any issues out on trail. The phone will be held by the duty first-aider that day. Please make sure you wear the band on your wrist rather than put it on the bike from now on.


Uplifts will run from 10.30am till 3.30pm.

Come and enjoy a relaxed days riding down some fun and fast flowing trails suitable for Trail, Enduro, E bikes and Downhill bikes.

Parking is based at the bottom of the DH course on an adjacent field. 

We will provide a toilet and a free pressure washer to use.

On arrival please sign on with one of the uplift team and collect your wrist band. 

We recommend wearing face masks in the uplift, but this is not compulsory.

If first aid is required please ask any uplift driver for assistance.
