Olly Brocklesby makes his gravity bike racing debut at Coleby, and could promise to be a dark horse in the proceedings. Olly is certainly no rookie when it comes to racing, having raced in Thundersport GB Motorcycle racing in previous years and is also the 2015 East Midlands Road Racing champion. Brocklesby will certainly be one to keep your eye on over the weekend.

Zack Leader has made a fantastic start to his 2016 campaign, taking 2nd overall at the opening round of the British Gravity Bike Championships at Gurston Down Speed Hill Climb in April, finishing just 0.85 seconds behind title favourite, Ian Round. The young lad from Lincolnshire has been racing every year since 2012, taking 2 wins and 6 podiums in that time. He has a thrilling riding style which saw him drift his bike at Gurston, and has some big sponsors to go with it! Including BSB Star, James Ellison, Spada Motorcycle Clothing and Goodridge. He's always pushing for wins, and will most certainly be up for a fight with his new found speed and confidence.

Team Rat Racing is Justin Greaves.
I entered the Worlaby Downhill Challenge last year for the first time, although I have raced bikes in the past, it's been some years since the last time. This year I have entered the Championship as team "Rat Racing", using the same bike as last year because it works very well! I finished 4th, just 0.02 seconds away from the trophies.
