The organisers are stoked to announce that RapidRacerProducts (RRP) have come on board as title sponsors of the 2011 series. The RapidRacerProducts team have been regulars on the Midlands XC podium in previous years and the Midlands XC team are fans of RapidRacerProducts so both sides are really happy to link up.
Following rider feedback, the organising team have been busy over the winter securing the right venues to ensure that the 2011 RRP Midlands XC series is the most fun yet. There is an EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT OFFER for the complete series entry.
With ace downhill singletrack and a great location on the edge of the Peak District, Birchall was voted many riders favourite round of 2010, so this year gets the opportunity to step things up a gear as it hosts the Midlands Champs.
The classic Midlands XC venue. Hanchurch is the host of round 3 of the series in 2011. Some riders will be using it as a tune up for the national Champs, while others will simply be enjoying the fantastic trails before they disappear beneath the ferns and bracken for another year!
Something special was required for the series finale and the venue that topped the polls with rider requests was Eastridge Woods in Shropshire. A proper old school course with many fond memories, it promises to be a perch on the saddle tip climb up, saddle in your stomach back down affair!
