James 'Jimmy' Hughes

Bio

Started out racing XC in 1992 moving to DH in 1996, when it became apparent climbing wasn’t as rewarding!  Racing mainly in the UK, winning 2 rounds of Rav 4 series in Sport cat, progressing me to the UK Elite Category for a total of 11 years getting to National podium in 2009 with a 2nd. In 2002 I started racing World Cups and then for the next 7 Years, racing in Europe, Canada and South Africa
