Welcome to Peaty's Steel City DH 2017, the biggest little race returns to Greno woods on Saturday the 20th May. Due to the overwhelming demand for race places we are again operating a lottery system for entry this year. By entering your details in to this event you are entering in to a lottery draw for a place at this years race, we will have a total of 210 entrants.
You will need to complete all the required details to enter. Once lottery entries are closed, winners of the lottery will be emailed within 48 hours for payment. Entrants will have only 48 hours to pay before their place is offered to someone else. You may enter the lottery only once, any duplicate entries will be completely disqualified from the draw.
A full face helmet is required to race. You will have to show Photo ID on the day to register.
You must enter the relevant category as detailed below. Entry for the race will be £40 for adults and £35 for kids. This is a not for profit event and all proceeds go back in to improve the woods for us mountain bikers.
Your category is determined by your age on the last day of 2017 not your age on the day of the race. For example, if you will be 29 on race day but your 30th birthday is in November then you will be a Master not a Senior.
- Ripper – 10 to 12
- Juvenile – 13-14
- Youth – 15-16
- Junior – 17-18
- Senior – 19-29
- Master – 30-39
- Veteran – 40 Plus
With so many lasses entering the race, this year your categories will also be based on age.
- Senior Ladies – 18-29
- Master Ladies – 30-39
- Veteran Ladies – 40 plus
We will also have a Pro-Am category for the lasses if we get enough entrants. You will be informed of your promotion.
If you are under 18, you can choose to enter the relevant lad’s category or enter with the senior ladies.
This is not a full on DH race, it is a Mini DH with a push up back to the top. The track has some significant features in it but all have a B-Line option around them should you not want to ride them. You do not need a full on DH rig to race, it would suit a mid-travel full sus machine but people have raced on all sorts. Peaty has won on his 29er, 650B and even 26″.
Whatever your reason is for attending the race, be it for the serious competition or just to have the experience of racing a mini Downhill, we’ll make it fun for all. Riders will get two timed runs with the fastest 3 riders in each category receiving a prize and a unique TADO medal.
We operate a no refund or entry exchange policy. We run this voluntarily and don’t have the time to deal with it. Also, we do not have a reserves list. Once the entries are gone, they are gone. Do not give you entry away to anyone else as you need to show Photo ID. This is because if they hurt themselves, it invalidates our insurance. Please also note that all entries are at the discretion of the organisers and may refused for any reason.
