British Cycling have today awarded the contract for the National Downhill Mountain Bike Series to the British Downhill Series (BDS) Race Director Si Paton.
With six years of successfully running the National Series under his belt at what is widely known as the most prestigious National series in the World. For that time the National series has been the breeding ground for World Champions with the likes of Danny Hart, Steve Peat, Gee Atherton, Marc Beaumont, Brendan Fairclough, Josh Bryceland, Rachel Atherton and Manon Carpenter all regular contenders.
The races have been sell outs with all eyes following the series as it is the bench mark for racing, attracting the Worlds fastest racers. All rounds will be UCI ranked meaning bumper prize money, lots of valuable UCI points up for grabs and house hold names appearing on the start list.
Race Director Si says, “Now is the time to take the National Series to the next level, our events will be classed as Game Changers. Working with Anne from Pro-PR and our ever expanding tried and trusted pit crew we will deliver each event to a standard never seen before. I would like to personally thank all the riders, trackside and arm chair fans, marshals, sponsors, media, British Cycling and my team for their continued support and over the past six years”.
