It’s almost time for the Spank Dirt Wars crew to unleash 5 rounds of dirt jumping madness here in the UK. The fourth year of the series is looking bigger and better than ever, with more prizes, awesome sponsors, top venues and a top organisational team, what more could you ask for, apart from sunshine…

The Venue line up for 2013 is off the hook as per usual:
Round 1 will be held at the famous Wisley Trails in Surrey on the 26th of May.
Round 2 will be held at Holdshott Trails in Hampshire on the 16th of June.
Round 3 will be held at the Relentless Energy Drink NASS Festival in Somerset on the 12th - 14th of July.
Round 4 is still to be confirmed but will be held in August.
Round 5 The Big Final will be held at RocketWorld on Dorset/Somerset border on the 7th and 8th of September.

There may be changes to the scheduled dates above if there is bad weather effecting the venues, but we are hoping that the calendar runs more as planned than it did in 2012.

Series Sponsors

Spank Industries are back for the second year as series title sponsors and we couldn’t be more stoked to have them back on board for their 3rd year supporting us. Boasting a team of riders that includes Darren ‘Bearclaw’ Berrecloth and Anthony Messere, Spank is known as a serious supplier of top quality DH, freeride, dirt jump and race components, as well as some super solid DJ Frames. Freddy Pulman took the win in the open series last year and now has a place on board the Spank team, so we will be keeping an eye on him this year to see how he gets on with the transition from the open to pro category.

We are hoping for better weather this year than the misery of a summer that was 2012. If however we do get downpours we have indoor skate parks on the ready so that we don’t get the succession of delays that we had last year.

Keep an eye out on www.dirtwarsuk.com for more series info over the coming months as the site gets regular updates on all things Dirt Wars related.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 26th of May at Wisley trails in Surrey for round 1 of the series.

Cliff, Rob and The DWUK Crew
