The Biking Blitz is a mass start cross country mountain bike event, aimed primarily at beginners but with something for everyone. There are series points up for grabs at each event, with an overall series devised from your best three results from any four events. There are two categories, “Baggy Shorts” for beginners or “Super Pro” for more experienced riders, plus youth categories for eight to eighteen year olds.

Mountain bike trail centres, which have been designed by international experts, are used exclusively for these events to ensure a fast flowing course in all weather conditions.
