Put your own skills to the test on a full loop of the 6km course at Dalby Forest, Yorkshire
Load up your mountain bike and head to the Dalby Dare in Yorkshire for your chance to both watch the exciting UK leg of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, as well as ride the course yourself.
Finishing under the World Cup arch, keen non-competitors will pedal a full loop of the official 6km World Cup course under race conditions on Saturday May 21, 2011, before heading out on to another 14km of some of the best trails in the UK.
The event starts from 3pm, with bikers heading off in three waves to reflect ability.
A free-to-watch urban street race, the Pro Sprint Eliminator, kicks off the weekend in Pickering on Friday May 20.
Young racers can ride a 1km course that crosses both the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup start and finish lines on Sunday May 21, before the World Cup event itself takes place that day.
With top British names such as Liam Killeen and Annie Last expected to compete, it's a great opportunity to watch some of the world's best riders in action ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.
Other activities available in the World Cup Village include bike demos and the chance to watch technical teams at work, as well as mingling with the stars and soaking up the atmosphere of a top class sporting event.
British Cycling's cycle sport and membership director Jonny Clay said, 'The Dalby Dare was a hit on its debut last year and we're delighted to bring it back to the World Cup Weekend this year.'
