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.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.

I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.

DISCIPLINE: Partial towards MOUNTAIN BIKING but love it all
CURRENT BIKE(S): Specialized Rockhopper, Specialized Tarmac, Pure Cycles Original
DREAM BIKE: S-Works Epic HT & S-Work Roubaix

OTHER PASSIONS: Technology, Photography, Baking, Travel, and Reading
