Watch the video and see how the 2012 SPS team fares at Combe Sydenham.
Following two days of training at UK Bike Park the SPS team compete at the first Halo British Downhill Series of the year under the wing of Steve Peat. Hoping to continue the success of last year's team there were some nerves as for many of the members, such as Nils, Glen, Matt Glynn and Alex Barker, this was their first national or their first race in a new category. Riding new carbon V10s with Fox and Shimano finishing kit maintained by a fully qualified mechanic the team is in the best position to deliver results!
Venturing over from the Enduro team Neil Donoghue raced this round and won his Expert category by a convincing 1.3 seconds.
Healing thoughts go out to Irvin Creighton who would have been racing in Veteran category had he not broken his hand in training.
With many other good results despite the odd crash here and there the team looks forward to the next round at Fort William in May
