WHAT TO EXPECT FOR 2016

Firstly, a vast open area with plenty of room for parking. We have a whopping 40 acres of area for the 2016 show.

Around every corner or through each valley and wooded turn something new opens up: hidden gullies, technical sections, wooded drives, an array of mounds with drops and climbs to keep everyone happy, axle twisters, soft sand, water, a small lake, wading sections, mud (glutenous and deep!), rock climbs, awesome drops and climbs. There are also many viewing areas to watch the mad and adventurous at play!
