Dirtwars UK 2020 10th Anniversary Series Info

The series started out in 2010 and as we go into our 11th year with Dirt Wars UK we are just as excited now as we were in 2010 to see what's going to happen this year and to see who is going to be pulling off what tricks on what jumps.

We will again be a part of the FMB World Tour with all rounds being bronze events as we are stoked to announce we will again be the only National Series in the UK sanctioned by the FMB.

We have a stacked series this year with some big changes, We have said goodbye to some of our old sponsors and are welcoming some new ones.

We have a venue back from the past as well as a new one in the GT Bicycles Malverns Festival in August (Series Final).

Dates and Venues

To kick the 11th year off we will be heading over to Bedfordshire to the home of British Dirt Jumping Chicksands Bike Park. This will be the sixth time we have used Chicksands as a venue for DWUK and last year it proved to be an awesome spot for a round of the series. We know the guy’s have been working hard all winter on the jumps and we cant wait to see whats going on. 26th April 2020 

Our second stop of the series will be Radical Bike Park in Essex. We have been using Radical as a venue for DWUK for a number of years now and it’s always proved to be an awesome venue. Last year we used Radical to start the series but this year we thought we would mix it up a little. 10th May 2020.

Round 3 will be at a venue we have used and loved in the past. We will be back at Wisley Trails in Surrey and this is the one we are seriously excited about. We have not used Wisley since 2016 and its changed so much since the last time we were there.  the guys have been working hard with the spades and have made a few new master peices. 31st May 2020

Round 4 We will be back at the home of DWUK as we will be at Freddy’s Yard at Shute Woods in East Devon. This is the largest and best Slopestyle course in the UK with a huge start drop, berms, cannon and huge jumps. This is deffo one not to be missed by spectators as its set in an awesome woodland with crazy features. June 14th 2020

Round 5 is one of the venue’s that was new to us for 2018 Ramps in Llanelli Wales. The owner Adam Williams built a set of dirt jump’s on the land situated to the right of the Skatepark for Dirt wars UK. This will be an awesome new spot for dirt jumping in the UK with jumps of all shapes and sizes for beginners straight through to pro’s when finished. 19th July 2020.

The Final for 2020 will be held at the Mighty Gt Bicycles Malverns Classic on the 28th and 29th August 2020.  We will be hosting the event from The Worx Dirt Arena at the festival with a brand new course set up for 2020.
