Racing, events & uplifts

2024 Downhill Round 2 - Bringewood

The Pearce Cycles Downhill Series is a British Cycling Regional A Ranking Series.  It sits one level below the 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.


A classic downhill race weekend.  A full day of practise on Saturday with uplift on a marshalled track with medical team on standby.  Then a further two hours practise on Sunday morning followed by two allocated timed runs for each rider.


We welcome all riders from 13 years 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 use a downhill, enduro or trail bike of your choice to compete on. 


Entry limited to 330 riders.


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.





Link for navigation with What 3 Words: thigh.plausible.glossed 

This will bring you near to the site and then just follow signs along the the forest track to the parking field.


We operate a one way system for this site so please access it from Ludlow town, not off the A4113 at Bromfield. 

Before traffic lights at Ludford Bridge, turn left onto road signposted Wigmore. Turn right after approx 1mile, then left at hairpin along Lower Wood Road (indicated by 'No through road' signs). On exit please follow one-way system through Downton Estate.

We recommend not solely relying on your Sat Nav!



There is camping available on site.  Access to the venue is along a single track road but is passable for caravans and motorhomes.  Toilets will be available from Friday.  There is no mains water supply, so please be self-sufficient.  Our caterers will sell bottled water.  


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.  If you need to, you can change the account type in your account profile page > edit profile.
