Beaumont and Murray favourites for Schwalbe British 4X Series at Redhill

Home » Mountain Bike (MTB)

Scott Beaumont and Cara Murray are favourites to take the win at the British Cycling MTB Four-cross series this weekend at Redhill.

Redhill in Gloucestershire is widely regarded as one of Britain's finest 4X tracks. A cornerstone of the British 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 6 July Britain's finest 4X riders will once again take on this track to see who will win round three 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.

The scene is really set heading into Redhill as Britain's top two ranked male 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.

Beaumont's record at Redhill is staggering. Of all the laps he has raced there; motos, quarter finals, semi finals and finals, Beaumont has only finished 2nd in two races.

Coming into Redhill Beaumont will undoubtedly be looking to keep his Redhill form going after taking wins at the opening two rounds in 2014.

Lewis Lacey is rejuvenated in 2014. After an injury-hit 2013, Lacey is back, fresh and hungry for 4X, having already taken two podiums in 4X ProTour so far in 2014.

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.

Cara Murray, Liz Fowler, Heather Kay and Clare Curtis are all in form after Leogang two weeks ago 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 riders Tyde D'Souza and Megan Wherry and the women's races will once again be a highlight.

With two wins out of two so far in 2014, Cara Murray, a Redhill local, will be the one to beat.
