    If you can get to NE london/Essex then there's the Beastway MTB series, it's on wednesday nights in Hainault country park, Rd 3 (of 10) was last wednesday, I've done the lot and it's really good.

    Here's the link to the site:

    used to ride at at the old venue and gave up, as its too much of a rush after a hard day at work to get there and then get motivated to race. I see now its œ10 to enter, thats taking the piss. Weekend racing is what I'm looking for.<blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"><i>Originally posted by snook</i>

    For me it's œ5 and I sometimes help put up the course so I get free entry, I suppose trying to get there from work would be hard.

    South-east is too flat and boring for proper racing...

    but here:

    Now there is a bit of dodgy generalization.

    Or the north or south downs! :)

    bedgebury is very flat but the overall height change around the lap is very high (my friend has a [email protected] altimeter thing set up on his bike)
