Event organiser, Chris Roberts, said:
“2021 is shaping up to be a great year of racing, with major track improvements at Redhill and continued improvements and lots of hard work taking place at every track set to host racing this season.
“Off the track, we’re moving towards building a new four cross structure at a regional and club level, and we’re looking forward to welcoming new riders especially those from BMX who have been riding more mountain bikes in the last 12 months.
“Thanks to continued support from Schwalbe we are able to reward this hard work with a £1,000 prize fund for the best track of 2021.”
