Aston Hill – Lovelo Racing Team at Rnd 1 of the National Downhill Series

Cwmcarn Forest – South Wales
Sunday 8th April 2018
Intro – Ian Warby – Firecrest MTB
Race Report – Joe Kilner and Aston Hill – Lovelo Race Team

Well it felt like the longest off season ever with a cold and wet winter to go with it, but as the saying goes ‘time wait for no one’ and the First Round of the all new National Downhill Series rolled round early in April.

The racer’s headed back to Cwncarn in South Wales to get the National Series off to flying start for 2018. With best chance in years to see the best in the World compete at a DH within 4 hours of London spectators headed to Cwmcarn to catch all the action too making the atmosphere feel more like a World Cup than a National.

The Aston Hill – Lovelo Racing Team has been working hard over the off season for a busy year with both Jeremy Coe and Josh Mead racing in their last year in Youth and Junior categories respectively and Joe Kilner stepping up into the Super Vets, racing against the over 50’s (not as easy as it sounds).  Ellen comes into 2018 as one of the leading Junior Women with a chance of taking the top step at every race she competes at.

I’ll hand over to Joe and the Team over on Ride.io to take you trackside and give you the inside line on how the racing went…

Weather Update – 17.03.18 – 12.30pm – Race Postponed to 10.06.18

Weather Update – 17.03.18 – 12.30pm

Having monitored the weather, the trail conditions and the forecast throughout the morning we have made the difficult decision to postpone tomorrows race.

All racers will have their entries transferred to the 10th June when the postponed race will be held on Ricochet.

This is not a decision I have taken lightly and we have everyone’s safety in mind.

Thank you for understanding.
