The Diamondback 44Racing Rockstar team had a great weekend at Round 3 of the British Downhill Series at Llangollen, Wales.
It was good to see the team getting up to speed on their new factory Diamondback Europe DH8 27.5″ bikes, this weekend was their first official outing rolling on the new 27.5″ frames.
As always they team set up was looking factory & professional, a credit to team manager “Hatch”
Team mechanic Rich Parkes finely tuned the bikes suspension for the course, using the teams feed back to make their bikes as fast & responsive as possible on such a crazy course.
Burning the midnight oil certainly paid off .
Junior class rider Bear Belk qualied in 2nd & also took the fastest Junior time through the speed trap @ 27.96mph, beating the speed of many pro’s, including Brendan FAIRCLOUGH 27.73mph, Danny HART 26.89mph, Josh BRYCELAND 25.95mph.
This coming weekend see’s round 2 of the UCI World Cup at Fort William, good luck to all the guys..
