Enter the Dragon
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

The Welsh Dragon Downhill race series really seized the moment, setting the bar pretty high, showing that there was real terrain and there were big mountains on which to host downhill races in UK.

Hefty tracks with uplift attracted famous riders and locals alike. Such was the draw that racers like Steve ‘Mr Big’ Barker (pictured) made the trip down from the north just so that they could enjoy some real downhill racing. This shot became well known and a bit of a classic, regularly featuring in the back of Dirt Magazine in the advert for the Dragon DH series.
