Dirtwars UK 2019 10th Anniversary Series Info

The series started out in 2010 and as we go into our 10th Anniversary Series 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 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 also said goodbye to the NASS Festival (For now) and we are moving our Festival Round to the biggest MTB Party and Event in the UK.

Dates and Venues

To kick the 10th Anniversary Series off we will be heading over to Essex to the home of Essex Dirt Jumping Radical Bike Park. This will be the forth time we have used Radical 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. May 5th 2019

Our second stop of the series will be Chicksands Bike Park in Bedfordshire. We have been using Chicksands as a venue for DWUK for a number of years now and it’s always proved to be an awesome venue. We normally start the series at Chicky but this year we thought we would mix it up a little and have Chicksands as round 2. May 26th 2019.

As we have said goodbye to NASS we needed a big event to fill its boots, not only have we filled it’s boots but we have filled its trousers too as we will be attending the GT Bicycles Malverns Classic Event with Round 3 of the series. The jumps will be open from 5pm to 9pm on the Friday evening at the festival for practice followed by Saturday 11am to 1pm. Qualifiers/Seeding will take place Saturday at 1.30pm to 4pm Then we will be holding the finals from 7pm to 8.30pm followed by podiums at 9.30pm. Then its time to party before the Spank Whip Off Challenge on Sunday. June 14th 15th & 16th 2019. PLEASE BE AWARE YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A MALVERNS TICKET FOR FESTIVAL ENTRY. SEE OUR ENTRY DETAILS TAB AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE.

The fourth round will be at one of our most used venues from the last 9 years, we will be returning to P.O.R.C where some mad action has gone down over the years of Dirt Wars. We are stoked to have PORC back and we know the riders will be too. July 7th 2019. Penshurst Kent.

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. August 11th 2019.

We will be back at the home of DWUK for Round 6 of the 2019 Series 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. September 1st 2019.

The Final will take place at Rocket World on the second biggest Slope Course in the UK. We will be holding a weekend of madness at Rocket World in Henstridge on the Dorset/Somerset border with Dirt Jump action, MX/Electric MX Madness and a little 10th Series Anniversary party on the Saturday night to see out the 10th Series.
