Bike and Tri Show

Firecrest Mountain Biking will be joining Shoretrax Mountain Bike Track Systems at The Bike and Triathlon Show which takes place at Manchester Central over the weekend of the 8th and 9th March 2014

Firecrest Mountain Bike Skills Training will be running skills taster sessions on the track throughout the duration of the show and it’s your chance to take your mountain bike skills to the next level and master the techniques needed to put in lap after lap of the track without even turning a pedal!

Pump tracks are great fun, the track is made up of a series of rollers (rolling humps) and berms (banked corners) and it’s the upslope, downslope and corner transitions that link these features, that riders use to “pump” the energy out of the track.

It’s a technique that’s easy to pick up and when perfected riders can do lap after lap without putting in a single pedal stroke. However, physically that’s not as easy as it sounds as it’s a full body workout that combines co-ordination, fitness, balance and control.

“We had a great time in Manchester Central at The Bike and Tri Show last year and can’t wait to be a part of it again this year. The show is growing year on year and being able to bring along the Shoretrax Pump track adds another dimension to the ‘come and try’ features at the show for this year. We’ll be giving riders the chance to learn a new skill and take there riding to another level.” Said Keith Evan’s of Shoretrax.

The show is open from 10.30am – 5pm on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March. Tickets for the show are on sale now from the website with pre-booked tickets from £12 per person and under 16’s go free!
