Back in the day the Bombhole Challenge was a great way to round out the season. A super chilled fun event that see riders take on the Bombholes on the way to 4X where a loop is marked out and riders race in an individual time-trial and then in a Team Competition.
This year the Bombhole Challenge returned to Aston Hill and a great morning was had by all. Keep an eye on the Firecrest MTB Website for details of next years events and more Bombhole Racing!
Thanks to Lovelo Cycle Works of Berkhamsted their support and some great prizes for the winners on the day.
