Round 3 of this season’s Crank It series will take place at the heart of the Lake District, amongst the forest and hills, at the Grizedale forest race course.

Following a mad dash from the start line, the racers will first face the deceptively challenging ‘rock garden’, before working their way out of the arena and onto a nice resting fire road. Following this, is a mix of fast flowing, single track, tight switch back descents and the popular ‘shipping pallet garden’!
