Sunday 1st July 2012!

The Bear Mountain DH Challenge is on again in 2012!

The Bear Mountain Challenge, like the name suggests, is just the right mix of fun and challenge, combined with a great atmosphere for the perfect race day.

The smooth, fast-flowing course is a huge drawcard every year, and 2012 will be no exception.
