Experienced Team

Fully supported by the MSG team who are in their 12th year the of one of the leading MTB race series in the UK.

Course Design

We create courses that are challenging but we also add A and B lines where required so you can build your confidence as a rider without being forced into riding anything your not comfortable with.


Based in the Eastern region and covering a wide area and variety of courses and terrain it has something for everyone.

Varied Locations

We cover a wide area so we try and cover a good range of locations to make it fair on everyone.

Varied Courses

We try and offer something for all as no one rider is the same with the same abilities so variety is the key.


We love what we do, we welcome all comers, and we try our hardest to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere to anyone who wants to give it a go.

Insta Bike!


11 years ago, thoughts were had in Essex as to how on earth it would be possible to create a meaningful legacy to the 2012 MTB event being held in the flatlands of East Anglia. The answer was to create an MTB race series, but one with a mission, and that mission was to make flatland MTB racing a powerful force in the world of MTB.

To do that the people involved set out to break moulds. The mould that dictated you had to have a mountain to enjoy MTB, the mould that had MTB operating outside the cycling club network, the mould that had MTB riders shunning the coach, the mould that said East Anglia couldn’t produce a world class mountain biker and so on…

At that time there were just 4 MTB races in the region, plus the Beastway series on the outskirts of London. Last year, there were 42!  and the region is now seen as an example to the rest of the country of how to build an MTB scene. We also have a burgeoning European champion, snapping at the heels of the worlds best, and who knows where it will go in the next 10 years.

Right now, here in our 10th year all we know is that we love what we do, we welcome all comers, and we try our hardest to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere to anyone who wants to give it a go. If you want to find out more delve deeper here or simply come along and experience the MSG welcome.
