Round 4. 
24TH JANUARY 2016 Santon Downham

G8 Events now have four rounds of the XC Winter Series under their belt, after buying out Thetford MTB Racing and although new to the XC event organising scene at the start, they do have previous experience in similar outdoor events and have comprehensively invested in the equipment required to cross over into XC mountain biking. 

Instead of outsourcing to Timelaps for the times and results they have their own equipment managed by the aptly named "Buttons". This is no Pantomime event however with the G8 team determined to give XC bikers in the eastern region the best possible events at various course's. Judging by the ratings from riders that have signed up for the races their efforts are paying off.

Here's a small selection of images from Sunday, all free to download and use as you wish, with regards from & XC
