The July BBCh race is gonna be the first Downhill race ever in Bangalore – and we were trying to figure out the best way to introduce this discipline here.

A Downhill camp – yeah !!!!

  • 2/3 weekend – Introduction to DH racing
  • 9/10 weekend – Trail maintenance
  • 6/17 weekend – Race weekend
3 June – Introduction to DH racing

Start off with a workshop of basic DH Skills at Turhalli – cornering, braking, controlled skids, pressures and bunny hops and wheelies. Our resident downhill expert Nelly will be handling this.

Play a good DH movie at BOTS – to learn and get inspired.

We have created a facebook event for this.

16/17 Weekend – The Race – Conducted in proper DH style
  • 16 July (saturday) – official practice session
  • 17 July (sunday) – Race day – 1 qualifier + 1 run

The DH stretch is less than a km long. Not too long, but good for the first DH race.

The DH stretch is fast and short – a good spectator sport. So call your friends and family. Should be loads of fun.
