A CHANCE TO RACE THE COUNTRIES BIGGEST LITTLE RACE
Steel City 2017
BUT WE ONLY HAVE ONE SPOT UP FOR GRABS
So if you missed out in the lottery make sure you enter our competition for your chance to ride this classic Sheffield event with an atmosphere unrivaled.
Just complete the form below to be in with a chance to win an epic day racing in the heart of the Outdoor City.
The standard Steel City entry rules apply: A full face helmet is required to race. You will have to show Photo ID on the day to register and under 18s must be signed in by a parent or guardian.
Your category is determined by your age on the last day of 2016 not your age on the day of the race. For example, if you will be 29 on race day but your 30th birthday is in November then you will be a Master, not a Senior.
– Ripper – 10-12
– Juvenile – 13-14
– Youth – 15-16
– Junior – 17-18
– Senior – 19-29
– Master – 30-39
– Veteran – 40 Plus
– Pro-Am Males
Pro-Am Males is for expert or elite category Mtb racers in any discipline only. Podium finishers based on previous results at the Steel City DH will also be promoted.
With so many lasses entering the race, this year your categories will also be based on age.
-Senior Ladies – 18-29
-Master Ladies – 30-39
-Veteran Ladies – 40 plus
-Pro AM Ladies
We will also have a Pro-Am category for the lasses if we get enough entrants. You will be informed of your promotion.
If you are under 18, you can choose to enter the relevant lad’s category or enter with the senior ladies.
This is not a full on DH race, it is a Mini DH with a push up back to the top. The track has some significant features in it but all have a B-Line option around them should you not want to ride them. You do not need a full on DH rig to race, it would suit a mid-travel full sus machine but people have raced on all sorts. Peaty has won on his 29er, 650B and even 26″.
Whatever your reason is for attending the race, be it for the serious competition or just to have the experience of racing a mini Downhill, we’ll make it fun for all. Riders will get two timed runs with the fastest 3 riders in each category receiving a prize.
