More bike time at a race that's not an enduro? Our interest was piqued and we reckon the Alpinestar Trail Attack sounds like a great event. MTB Trail Attack returns to Hamsterley Forest on 22nd July 2018. Following a successful launch in 2017, the unique racing format of MTB Trail Attack is back and guaranteed to provide more competition and excitement.
MTB Trail Attack sees riders competing in an open format to set their fastest time down the trails of Hamsterley Forest. This year riders are given more time to ride. The full field of 200 riders have two hours to get in as many runs as possible to set their fastest times. After this open session, the field is cut in half with the fastest 100 progressing to the next heat where the slate is wiped clean. After a further 90 minutes the top 32 riders will compete in one last run down the trail for the chance to be crowned Alpinestars MTB Trail Attack Champion.
Every rider who registers and races will receive a complimentary Alpinestars t-shirt and will be in with a chance of securing some of the freshest Alpinestars kit in their respective age and gender categories.
MTB Trail Attack will be organised and managed by Focal Events and will take place across the Transmission, Accelerator and Nitrous trails. Live timing for each individual trail and the full run will show where you stand as the cut off times approach. Will you push harder to make the cut or can you rest up knowing you have already made it? With no limits on the number of runs you can take, there is time to find your line and ride it hard!
So, get ready for a day of flat out riding with your friends, competing against your own best time, your mate’s times and other racers alike as you battle it out to be crowned Alpinestars MTB Trail Attack Champion 2018.
