2022 DH R4 - Bucknell

If you were entered in the postponed Bringewood race from April, your entry will have been transferred into this race. 

Should this causes any issues please email us ASAP to request a refund.



Welcome to the Pearce Cycles Downhill series 2022!


Classic downhill race weekend. Practice with uplift all day Saturday on a fully marshalled track with medical team on standby. Race day Sunday with a short practice time in the morning then 2 allocated timed runs during the day.

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. 

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.


Cancellation and Refunds:

Please email or call us if you wish to cancel an race entry.  We will issue a refund, less a £10 admin fee for each event needing a refund up to two weeks before the event date. We are unable to issue any refund for cancellations within the two weeks leading up to the event date. Please note your entry is not transferable to another rider.

We recommend not solely relying on your Sat Nav!


We offer two types of account on our website.  A 'Shopper Only' account will allow you to purchase from the website, but doesn't allow you to book any events.  If you wish to book onto our uplifts, demo days and race series you will need a Shopper & Rider account.  This does require us to hold a small amount of additional information about yourself including date of birth and emergency contact details.
