The club now runs two race series during the year which are ideal for new members to “learn the ropes” and more experienced members to hone their skills and keep their fitness up. Both series are run using a similar format to regional and national series so riders and parents can quickly get an understanding of how BMX races and events are run.
For dates please see the “Diary Dates” page.
The Summer Series Racing starts in May and is held every two weeks to make an 8 round series.
Compete in 6 rounds for a Series award.
Best 6 results count to riders standing.
Registration opens 6.00pm to 6.30pm.

The classes for both series are

Race age is based on the year in which the Series finishes – Year of last round minus year of birth = Race Age
Classes may be merged to provide better competition for riders – administrators decision is final!
Experienced riders may move up one class but once a class is chosen there is no going back.
Since the classes are for Male and Female riders together, the Female riders can elect to ride down one class – again, once a class is chosen there is no going back
Race fees are £5.00 for members and £7.00 for non members.
