In 2006 the series was renamed the World Championship Night Racing Series in recognition of the competitiveness of riders racing in this series……for many years on the start line I’d say, ‘its not the World Champs, take it easy’. This usually fell on deaf ears and the riders would then take off like they were racing in a World Champ race... hence it has now become The World Champsionship MTB Night Racing Series.
But don’t let the name deter you. All mountain bikers are welcome and the course is suitable for all levels of riders.
The 2011 series kicks off in early May and will run for eight weeks. The first race will be a warm up race to allow riders to familiarize themselves with the course and racing in the dark, then the next seven races after this will make up the World Champ Series.
