Club Xmas party. Get out there and practice your DROPS, PUMPS and SWITCHBACKS for the worlds first.....GBMTB Back Yard Series!!!
THE CONCEPT: There are a few keen people out there who have been building their own MTB tracks in their backyards. So what we plan is to spend an afternoon trying out 3 of these tracks and each getting our "Best Timed Lap" on each track. At the end of the day there will be a trophy awarded for the inaugural "GBMTB Back Yard Series" (not necessarily for the best time....) All going well we can make this a regular fun day out. Remember this is a social day out, NOT a full on organised event!
