The 2017 Schwalbe British 4X Series moves to Harthill in Cheshire.
After a fantastic start to the 2017 season, it looks like it is going to be the biggest event so far
The Harthill track, last year, provided one of the best races of the entire year. Whilst the weather wasn’t great, the racing more than made up for it and the atmosphere was fantastic. The track has a sand base which is great as no matter what the weather the track runs perfectly.
Micheal Dewsnap has done a brilliant job of getting riders to come and help to prepare the track and also big thank you to Tim Fuell getting the digger in to do the bigger jobs, the track is in great shape and ready to host the series finals.
All Schwalbe British 4X rounds are accessible to all. From rippers aged 10 years and older, beginners who can enter Fun (12 to 17 year olds) and Big Fun (18+) all the way up to Vets, there is a class for you. With entry costs of £30 for pre entry and £40 on the day, there is no cheaper way of racing your Mountain Bike all day long with no queues, great viewing for spectators and a fun atmosphere that will make you want to keep coming back for more.
