Cwmdown is one of the original mountain bike uplifts in the UK. Running since 2006, we are here to run you guys to the top of the DH & XC trails at Cwmcarn in South Wales.

With a 250m vertical drop through the epic Cwmcarn landscape, all-weather trails and year round uplift, it’s often seen as one of the definitive UK downhill destinations. Graded Extreme, it offers some steep, technical and challenging trails, whilst still having options for the more intermediate riders.

For regular updates, take a look at our Facebook , instagram  & Vimeo pages.

It’s on! British champ vs British champ! Mountain bike against road! We get Matt Walker and Connor Swift together for a head-to-head race down Cwmcarn’s legendary black run, followed by a climb up the Gospel Pass. Who will come out on top? Who will be the unified MTB and Road national champion? Let’s find out!
