World Champ set to join charity pro-am stars at Hamsterley Forest event in September

The 2011 World Champ, Danny Hart, has confirmed that he’ll be taking part in a pro-am DH and 4X event in order to raise money for the charity, Help For Heroes.

The mini-festival is set to be held at Hamsterley Forest, Danny’s training ground, on 29 to 30 September, and is being organised by Jack Bennett of 1st Battalion, the Yorkshire Regiment and the British Army Downhill Team.

Jack and the team are hoping to attract more than 250 amateurs and professionals of all ages and abilities to compete in practice on the Saturday and the races themselves on Sunday.

One of the big draws is the under-12 class Mini-DH, which will give the young rippers a chance to take part in the same event as, among others, a World Champion.

The organisers are hoping to raise a minimum of £5,000, which will go directly to the Catterick Personnel Recovery Centre.

Danny has long been an advocate for Help for Heroes and has supported them through T-shirt sales at Fort William alongside running a limited edition, specially chromed Giant Glory featuring 400 names of service personnel the charity currently helps. The bike is currently on a publicity tour before it’ll take pride of place on the Giant stand at the years big trade shows.
