|Mountain Bike: Ilkley Downhill Association|
Visit our web site at: www.downhilling.co.uk
JD cycles and Valley Signs have recently sponsored the local downhill mountain bike team or the Ilkley Downhill Association.
The team currently has 8 main team members all of which are going to be racing, fund raising and creating their movie “Monumental” throughout the year. The team is also allowing associate riders to join. Like the JD cycles/Marie Curie associates, they will be wearing tee-shirts advertising the I.D.A but not having a main role in the team. The team are hoping to be entering one or two races a month starting from April, so look out on the race scene for them. A big fund raising event for Marie Curie Cancer Care is also being thought about for the summer, but more details about that will be posted on their website and ours.
To complement the team a website has also been created by Sam Needham one of the team riders and JD cycles staff, and has kindly been set up by Johnny Ratcliffe one of the full time staff at JD cycles.
So check out www.downhilling.co.uk, and expect to see the team around and about ilkley.
For more details go to the website for contact lists or pop into JD cycles on a Saturday to talk to Sam.
The Ilkley Downhill Association is: Sam Needham, Matt (Whighty) White, Ross Parkinson, Luke Bennett, Tom (Doddy) Doddsworth, Jay Mc Niff, Austin Mc Niff and Olie Dellar.
