The track in Falmouth is huge. With 11 corners and 4 of them being flat or off camber, this will be a true test for the riders this weekend and a fitting venue to crown the National Champions. A long start straight, pro line doubles, rocks, logs, off cambers and huge berms are all in this vision of a perfect 4X track. Without a doubt it will provide some amazing racing.

 

Fun for all and a challenge for the fastest riders – that’s Falmouth! As if all that was not enough, the beach is just a 10 minute walk away!

Britain’s top riders will be there, battling it out to see who will be crowned National Champion. Scott Beaumont will head into the race as defending Champion and looking to win his 9th National Championship title. The competition will be fierce. Local rider, Falmouth track builder and defending National Series Champion, Will Evans will certainly fancy his chances on the track he helped build. He knows every inch of this track and will know all the fastest lines. Duncan Ferris has openly said that his focus in 2018 is the National Championships so he will be fired up to try and clinch the title. There are so many others who could win this race. Connor Hudson, Jack Hudson, Alex Metcalfe, Ben Jones, Davi Roberts and Charlie Curry will all be in the mix and at this race will have every chance to win the title.

In the women’s, Natasha Bradley will be the favourite after, what has been another incredible year. Tyde D’Souza is the local rider and will be looking to transfer those hours of practice into a win on her home track. Megan Wherry and Hannah Escott will be fighting to make the final and get their hands on the title.
