Flow MTB 2018 Rider Profile: Rebecca Smith

Flow MTB Rider Rebecca Smith Pearce Downhill Series Bucknell

I work full time in a busy professional office but in my spare time I travel around the UK and World having adventures! I race downhill mountain bikes, climb mountains, enjoy the outdoors and can’t wait to get involved in pretty much any kind of muddy adventure.

I’m passionate about increasing women’s participation in riding and have helped out at a number of local women’s events this year. Many women start riding at a more mature age and it is great to help them get started in local races. I’m keen to show people that you are never too old to start and you can race at the weekend around a full time job.

Major race results


  • Pearce Downhill Series : #1 – 7th, #6 – 10th
  • HSBC BDS : #5 – 7th
  • Onza Tyres Mini Downhill :  #2 – 5th, #3 – 4th
  • Racers Guild Downhill Series: Red – 9th, Wonderland – 7th, A & E – 2nd


  • Pearce Downhill Series – 2nd Master female overall : #2 – 2nd, #3 – 1st, #4 – 2nd, #5 – 4th, #6 – 3rd
  • Mini Downhill winter series : #1 – 4th, #2 – 9th, #3 – 4th

Plans for 2018

Over the winter I’ll be riding the Onza Mini Downhill Series at the Forest of Dean and the Racers Guild Downhill Series at Stile Cop.
I’m hoping to get tickets for the Pearce Downhill Series over the summer and some of the national British Downhill Series.
I’ve managed to get tickets for the ‘Ard Rock Enduro and the dual slalom and downhill events at the Malvern Festival.
