This is Cold Brew Trail Bike TT race at Eastgate in the Wear Valley of County Durham. Trail Bike TT is a Downhill style event aimed at Enduro / Trailbikes on a fun trail.  Basically whatever bike you take out for a Sunday blast is a cool bike for this event.  All you need is your bike a full face helmet and and some end plugs in your bars.  It's a push up this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. Cold Brew TT events are great places to start your gravity racing journey.  For those with experience riding different terrain and getting some much needed competition time under your wheels should brighten up your day.  The trail is aimed at trail/enduro bikes but you should manage some fun on a DH bike too.  If you are happy on Forestry Red graded trails you will be having a blast at Eastgate.
