Press release: Round 1 HSBC British 4X Series presented by Schwalbe: Chicksands, Bedfordshire – Cancellation.
With the recent global outbreak of Covid-19 virus, we are saddened to announce the cancellation of Round 1 of the 2020 HSBC British 4X Series presented by Schwalbe which was due to be held at Chicksands in Bedfordshire this Sunday – 22nd March.
Whilst this is not the news we wanted to share, we feel it is vital to play our part in preventing the spread of this new global virus. Our number one priority will always be the health and wellbeing of riders, staff and fans of our sport. With the preventative measures being increased per day here in the UK by the government, we feel that cancelling this race is entirely the right decision.
Everyone who has pre entered will be transferred to when ever we are allowed to start racing again or will get a full refund if requested.
Round 1 is now due to take place at 417 Bike Park although we will continue to follow government and British Cycling advice and guidelines as this event approaches.
Thank you for the support of British 4X. We will continue to update our website and Facebook pages with news on the series in due course.
