And our call to arms #SupportUKRacing
Elite racers. Please enter at least three races. Enter early, enter all the events in one go, turn up and get stuck in to racing to win.
Support the British races that helped you to get to the level you’re at now. When you’re there, fire up some Instagram posts and help show the World the UK race scene is STRONG!
Bike industry. We know marketing budgets are small and times are tough.
Please, consider event sponsorship as a good way to sell your bikes alongside athlete sponsorship. Support the races with any sponsorship opportunities that you can afford. Push your athletes to race at least three events and support them with a strong presence for your brands at the races.
We understand that it’s easier to support riders than races but no races means no riders.
