This weekend will see most of the Born to Bike Track team in action at Derby Arena, where they will spend most of the night riding around 250 metres of fine Siberian timber chasing six 2-stoke Derny motorbikes!  It really doesn’t get any better than this!

Some of the team took part in the first event ran last month and the buzz of this soon spread throughout the team.  In action this weekend we have 10 of the team occupying nearly half of the field of riders.
