Saturday the 24th of August 2024.  

Racing for 6-15 year olds on a short multiple lap course that is entry level and therefore the perfect introduction towards the discipline of XC.  

Retro Racers to race on an extended course that will still incorporate the Childrens XC course and will utilise the hill that we use for the the dual slalom. Otherwise known as the Classic Climb and the Cannondale Ridge!

You must race on a bike dating 2004 or earlier and ideally wear a retro race top in the true spirit of the Malverns!

The start line will be in the main arena in front of the main stage.

The finish line will be outside the main arena.

Before entering, please note:

– Enter in confidence as we will happily refund you on your race entry less the booking fee up until 23:59 on Wednesday the 31st of July. Just email [email protected] with the riders name and category.

-Please note you must also purchase a festival ticket to enter the festival, even if you have purchased a race entry

– Bring a bike lock and ensure your bike/s when not sat on are locked up at all times

– Bikes should be stored inside your vehicle when not being used (bring an old sheet and remove the wheels if need be). We then highly recommend you bring additional locks and lock the bike up further, even when inside your vehicles. Bring an additional sheet to cover over your bike/s in your vehicle

Please Note: Mountain biking is an inherently dangerous sport with the distinct possibility of severe injuries, or even worse. No matter where you ride or how well you know the course you should never ride beyond your skill level and always ride in control and in a sensible manner. Riding in control does not just mean being able to stop, it also means having the requisite skills to recognise and avoid potentially dangerous situations on the course. You must also be able to recognise where it is safe to stop on the course. Avoiding accidents with other riders is an essential mountain biking skill. Riders must use the course in a sensible manner compatible with their level of experience. Riders should walk the course, observing current ground conditions, making yourself aware of any obstacles prior to riding the course. We ask riders to accept that they will ride the course at their own risk and accept that no liability can be accepted by the event organisers.
