Schwalbe British 4X Series Round 7
This Saturday sees round 7 of the 2017 Schwalbe British 4X Series taking place at 417 Project, in Gloucestershire.
The brand new facility and 4X track at 417 has been the talk of the UK mountain bike industry this year after it opened its gates in Spring. With a purpose built 4X track, indoor pump track, dirt jumps, downhill trails and on site Leisure Lakes shop, this venue has it all. The 4X track, created by Duncan Ferris is a work of art and will provide some amazing racing this Saturday. At around 400 metres long, with 6 turns and flowing jumps, this track is a great example of 4X at its finest.
