ALL is ready for the opening round of the Mountain Bike New Zealand National Downhill Series which will take place on Bluff Hill on Sunday.

Competitors from throughout New Zealand will be descending on Bluff for the event.

Spectators are welcome to come and take in the action on the day with practise runs to determine seedings from 12.30pm, and racing to follow from 3pm.

Best viewing would be from the bottom of the course.

Spectators can park in Pearce St, Bluff, and the surrounding area, and access the downhill course via the car park off Flagstaff Rd.

From there, a 10-15 minute reasonably easy walk up Bluff Hill will get spectators trackside for some of the best downhill mountain biking action.

Information as the champs draw near would be available on the Southland Mountain Bike Club’s Facebook page.
