British amp up for weekend of 4X racing

The British National 4X Championships take place this weekend on August 4 on the outskirts of the Forest of Dean. The purpose built track winds downhill from the top of a steep hill, to descend 300m.

Top contenders include Will Longdon defending champion from last year, Scott Beaumont who took second at the Mount Ste. Anne World Cup, and Dale Holmes, who's flying in from the US just for the event. Look out also from some newer faces on the British 4X scene including Will Evans, Duncan Ferris, Steve Atkins, Lewis Lacey, Steve Taylor, and Dan Yeomans.

Practice starts at noon with seeding at 3:00 pm and racing at 3:30 pm. Racing then continues Sunday with Round 6 of the National 4X series in Gloucestershire.
