Now in its 10th year of racing, the Mini Downhill will be proudly sponsored by Onza Tyres.
The polar opposite of high-pressure, super-competitive racing the Mini Downhill is all about great tracks, one-day events, loads of fun and riding with your mates.
The tracks are chosen especially to be be fun to ride and not require Aaron Gwin skills, the best bike or the biggest balls. They’re great fun for pros and first-timers alike and open to riders from 13 years old and above. Whilst round 1 is now fully booked with 350+ riders, there are two more events to race in February and March 2017 still up for grabs.
The dates for the 2017 Onza Tyres Mini Downhill are:
29th January 2017 (sold out)
26th February 2017
26th March 2017
3rd December 2017
Onza Tyres will bring awesome support to the series, providing a mountain of prizes to successful racers. Their range of tyres – as used by Aaron Gwin, Angel Suarez and James Doerfling – will offer Mini Downhill racers everything they need for the trails at the Forest of Dean.
Onza’s man in the UK Pete Drew told us: “We’re very happy to be sponsoring the Mini Downhill series with Onza Tyres for 2017. The brand and Silverfish have a long history of supporting racing and racers so it’s great to be working with the series this season. It’s a perfect link for us with the launch of World Cup winner Aaron Gwin’s signature tyre, the Aquila, this season.”
The Mini Downhill is also supported by MTB Beds Morzine, FlyUp Downhill, Enve Wheels, Mudhugger, Flow Mtb and Eat my Dirt.
