DMR Bikes Pump Track Challenge – Saturday 10th November in Bristol.

Followed by the massive Wideopenmag end of season party – hosted by Monster Energy!

Join us for the biggest outdoor pump track race of the season on the Brunel Way pump track in Bristol followed by a huge end of season party.

“The DMR Bikes Pump Track Challenge is great for rider and crowd participation so it’s easy to see how this will become one of the great fun events on the calendar.

if you’re feeling a bit handy then there will be loads of prizes for the people that set the fastest time around the track. Although there’s obviously no pedalling allowed it’s still going to be a proper trial of strength and endurance as well as bike handling.

If that’s not enough, Monster Energy will be joining us for the race to fuel the riders for free. They’ll be on site with the amazing Monster Energy truck and will be handing out drinks for free.

What is a Pump Track?
Pump Tracks are one of the best ways to learn skills for all types of riding dirt. Open to all skill levels, Pump Tracks are attractive to dirt new comers and are the breeding ground for dirt jumping and 4x racing formats. Pump Tracks are springing up all over the country. They vary in design but are generally short, rolling, tight and twisty. They challenge rider’s skill. Races will be won and lost in the corners. Upper body strength and bike handling is key as no pedalling is allowed.
