Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

After a hard winter for 4x finding out they were no longer a part of the UCI race calendar last season, many were wondering what the season would bring, would many people help bring back 4x to where it should be and by the looks of it its going in the right direction! 

After a hard winter for 4x finding out they were no longer a part of the UCI race calendar last season, many were wondering what the season would bring, would many people help bring back 4x to where it should be and by the looks of it its going in the right direction!

Round 1 was to be held at Campion hills Leamington Spa for the 2nd year in a row which is great because the team behind it have put a lot of effort in to get it there and we couldn’t have asked for more.

The weather was great but not only that there was a massive attendance not just in terms of riders but the local support was immense as always the best atmosphere and crowd of the season!


Saturday was practice and the team were looking great all day standing out from many other riders (it is there local track!) especially the young guns Elliot knight. Cai Mahon and Chris Becket all looking smooth and fast, the boys have come on so well in the off season 2 years ago they didn’t even ride!

As always Nate Parsons was looking super quick and focused on the race ahead Nate had it hard with a previous World champ racing and a lot of the younger guys had moved up wanting the win but Nate didn’t let this affect him and put a great show on for the local support he got showing them how its done in style with great results all day.

Sunday was race day and the lads were ready for it after a good day of practice with all the jumps and lines dialled, Chris Becket a new sign for the talent team was looking so good all weekend but unfortunately took a few big stack leaving him not to make the cut for the day.

Elliot Knight had just moved up to youth from Juvenile and took the win on the day in style looks like his training has paid off as he was looking rapid in every Moto, squeezing his way into the A-final where he got a great snap in the gate to take the lead and keep it all the way to the line with a considerable margin to the next rider.


Up next was Cai Mahon in his 2nd year as a youth, Cai took a few big tumbles last season which held him back and knocked his confidence a bit, but by looking at him on the track he was back to himself after a great winter training on the bike, looking smooth and confident hitting all the jumps and pro line with ease.

Cai did great in all his motos taking him to the A-final with Elliot Knight, Elliot took the snap on the gate with Cai snapping on his heels lucky enough elldog took the win with Cai coming in 2nd .

 Dom one of our promising Junior riders was unable to make the first race due to a pre-booked holiday.

Josh Bremridge has just moved into Junior for the 2012 season after finishing 2nd in Youth last season and was looking strong from the start a crash in one of the motos made it hard for josh to then make the A-final which unfortunately he didn’t but did make the cut for the B-final where he had a good race to take 6th on the day due to a bent hanger and gear issue’s.


Nathan Parsons the team’s only Elite rider looked rapid but had some serious competition on his hands with the likes of former World champ Tomas Slavik and Scott Beaumont, Nate won most of his races all day luckily missing the likes of Tomas and Scott until they met in the final which had been highly anticipated all day.

The gate dropped and Nate didn’t get the best of snaps but worked hard to get himself back into third spot just ahead of boom boom Beaumont where he stayed to take 3rd on the day.
