What can we expect?

Early weather reports show a dry week of practice, followed by light rain on Saturday and patchy showers for the race on Sunday.

Nestled in the remote Welsh mountains the course ensures riders will have to defy some of the largest jumps and slab rolls seen in downhill mountain biking, including an extension of the gap on the mammoth Step Up jump for this year, making it faster than ever before, and leading directly into a brand new 65ft step down feature.
