Redhill in Gloucestershire is one of Britain's finest 4X tracks. A cornerstone of the British 4X Series this fast, flowing track is always a favourite for riders and spectators.
With fun, flowing jumps, high berms and split lines on the track, racing is always amazing and on Sunday 6th July Britain's finest 4X riders will once again take on this track to see who will win round 3 of the 2014 Schwalbe British 4X Series.
Set on a hillside overlooking the river Severn, Redhill has a fantastic scene with local riders all helping to groom and manicure the track all year around to provide a 4X facility that is loved by all.
Who to watch:
The scene is really set heading into Redhill as Britain's top 2 ranked riders will once again go head to head. Scott Beaumont and Lewis Lacey will be racing and it is going to be fascinating watching this battle unfold. Scott Beaumont's record at Redhill is staggering. Of all the laps he has raced here - motos, quarter finals, semi finals and finals, he has only finished 2nd in 2 races! The semi final last year and the national championships final a few years ago. He has won every other lap! Coming into Redhill he will undoubtedly be looking to keep his Redhill form going after taking wins at the opening 2 rounds in 2014.
Lewis Lacey is rejuvenated in 2014. After an injury hit 2013, Lewis is back, fresh and hungry for 4X. He is flying on the world scene and has already taken 2 podiums in 4X ProTour so far in 2014. He will be looking for the win and will challenge Scott Beaumont for sure.
Fresh from 4X World Championships, Nathan Parsons, Duncan Ferris, Dave Richardson and Luke Cryer are all in fine form right now and they will also be battling for the win.
In the women's, again team GB 4X team will all be present and looking for maximum points at Redhill. After British Cycling sent the biggest British female 4X team ever to Leogang 2 weeks ago, Cara Murray, Liz Fowler, Heather Kay and Clare Curtis are all in form and will be looking to back up their amazing rides at World championships with a great ride in the national series. Add into the mix the young pretenders Tyde D'Souza and Megan Wherry and the women's racing will once again be a highlight of the days racing. With 2 wins out of 2 so far in 2014, Cara Murray, a Redhill local will be the one to beat, but as ever in the women's racing, anyone could win.
