Races & Events

2016 Race Calendar 

At FJ MTB we proudly support grassroots Downhill MTB racing across a number of events throughout the year.  We have a race series, hosted  by Mike over at Borderline Events and our own (now legendary) FJ Race Weekender.

Details of each of all our proposed race events for 2016 are provided below.

Borderline North West Series
These races are push up events with each round contested on a different trail at FJ MTB.  

Dates:
06th Mar 2016 – BL/FJ’s Round 1
01st May 2016 – BL/FJ’s Round 2
12th Jun 2016 – BL/FJ’s Round 3
30th Oct 2016 – BL/FJ’s Round 4

Camping is available at the park for no additional charge on both the Friday and Saturday nights; if there are a few of you planning to race you may want to hire our bunkhouse.  We can also accommodate caravans and motor homes, please get in touch in advance to let us know you are coming so we can direct you to a pitch.

Age groups, classifications and entry prices will be made available in due course; pre-entry online is recommended although some entries may be available on the day on a strictly first come first served basis.  A British Cycling License is not required for entry but is nesecary if you want to obtain ranking points. The races are held on the Sunday with the Saturday available for practice (your race entry fee covers the Sunday race day only).  Saturday practice is open to entrants and non entrants with the normal FJ entry charges applying (i.e. £1 for members / £7 for non members to ride on Saturday).

Online entries will be available soon

FJ Race Weekender
Now reaching legendary status, the 2015 event surpassed all expectations with over 200 competitors and several hundred spectators taking part in a weekend of two-wheeled mayhem! Previously we filled our time with a night time (fancy dress) DH race, home made go-kart racing, airbag jumping, dirt jumping, a BBQ and a daytime DH race.

Our 2016 event has been scheduled for Sept 24th and full details will follow, in the meantime check this edit from our 2014 event.
