Rd3 Afan, South Wales 2017

Race Preview – Schwalbe British 4X Series Round 3 – Afan, UK, May 7th

The Phil Saxena designed 4X track, is one of the best tracks ever seen in the UK, with a massive rock section, corkscrew bridge and pro line that has double jumps over 35 feet long! Lines for beginners and Elites are catered for which makes this track so good for everyone. Racing is always close, passing is frequent and races are never normally decided until the finish line.

The track really showcases 4X and after a great start to the series in Chicksands 5 weeks ago, the British 4X team are excited for Round 2 in Afan.

Britain’s top riders will be there, battling it out to see who will take round 3 of the 7 round series.

Why 4X…?

With racing categories available to male and female riders from 10 years old up to over 65 years old, 4X really is the sport that appeals to the masses. 4X hardtails, enduro bikes, xc bikes and dh bikes are all welcome. Whether you have 24”, 26”, 650B or 29” wheels, it doesn’t matter; you will love racing 4X.
