After a long old winter it was time for the riders to dust off their trick bags and get ready for the first of 6 rounds of this yearâ€™s Rose Bikes Dirt Wars UK, an FMBA sanctioned National Series. Chicksands was first on the list and as always the jumps didn’t fail to impress. Chicksands Bike Park is set in woodland in Bedfordshire and has been around since square wheels and is ran and maintained by the Chicksands bike park crew. A great contest in near perfect weather conditions saw some worthy winners climb the podium. The story of the day may have been 9-year-old Finlay Davis though, who came to ride and compete in the open round. Without wanting to disappoint the kid, the organizers upped the insurance and made it possbile for Finlay to take it to the dirt on his bike. The young gun even managed to come in 4th place. Well done, Finlay! Well done, Dirt Wars!
