A brand new downhill track is about to open at One Giant Leap, Llangollen in North Wales.
The new Ride Portugal Track has been built by Brian Mundy (owner of Ride Portugal) and is designed as a stepping stone up to World Cup standard tracks. The track, which will be opened officially in July 2017 is steep, technical, fast and includes some big jumps and steep chutes.
The track will be opened officially to the public on the weekend of 29th and 30th July. There will be two days of uplifts, camping, food and live music. You can book online here.

For the last 4 months (I) have built an entirely new style of track single handed.
I believe it will shake some feathers and very much change the future of both the venue and racing south of Scotland.”
