National DH Champs 16-17 July

Revolution Bike park is great venue and the weather had decided to play ball too and unbelievably it wasn’t raining in the Nog!

The track was still wet in places and very very greasy! the rooty shoot down into the first fire road crossing would see Mick crash hard! Game over for the old boy with a dead leg. Nearly as old Rich would also suffer leg injuries but just about managed to carry on, but by the time race runs came around it was a case of just free wheeling down the track to at least finish the race.

Liam as always was loving Revs and was on it all weekend. Heres his account:

“When I heard the national champs would be held at Revolution bike park I was quite excited to say the least and after a recent fork and shock service my Gt fury was running spot on. With a little rain Friday the track was damp but along came the sun and conditions couldn’t of been better. Along with rolling on my Kenda honey badgers the grip was fantastic. Practice went well along with allot of banter track side and I couldn’t of been happier with the track. Sunday soon came and I was cooking in the sun waiting for my race run. With a brilliant uplift run by the revolution bike park team themselves I was straight up and sat on the start waiting for the beeps. Due to been mixed in with the elites I wasn’t expecting miracles but I guess this took a few of my nerves away. My run was good, a little shakey but I crossed the line in a respectable time. My 2nd run however was allot smoother with very few mistakes. Overall it was a brilliant weekend and a very organised event with thanks to Mike Marsden and his team. Next stop Germany and Switzerland for the ixs! I will be keeping you updated.”

Big shout out to Farmer John and his crew for prepairing a great track and Mike Marsden for running another excellent National Champs.
