The 2015 British Cycling MTB Four-cross Series travels to Falmouth in Cornwall for the final two rounds of the series.

Britain’s top riders will be there, battling it out to see who will take the wins on the day and the overall series. Duncan Ferris has been on it all year and will again be looking for another final win in Falmouth.

Nathan Parsons will battle Duncan all the way and will be also looking to secure the number one plate for 2016.

But it is Alex Metcalfe who is the man in form at the moment with two top six rides in the last two 4X ProTour events; he has momentum heading into Falmouth. Davi Roberts also has momentum after securing a career best result of third in the 4X ProTour last week in Czech Republic.

Luke Cryer has been hit with injury recently, but will be looking for a good result here. Will Evans is the local hero though and the crowd will be cheering Will on as he looks to end his season with a valuable win. Dave Richardson, James Whitby Paul Bakewell and the Hudson brothers will all be in the hunt too.

In the women’s, numbers continue to grow and interest for women’s four-cross racing is at an all-time high. Natasha Bradley will be the favourite after a breakthrough year.

The new British champion will be looking to add another win to her great year so far. Liz Fowler is back racing and will be looking for a good result ahead of the world championships in a couple of weeks.

Tyde D’Souza is the local rider and will be looking to transfer those hours of practice into a win on her home track. Megan Wherry, Heather Kay, Claire Curtis and all the other women will be fighting to make the final and get their hands on valuable series points.

All riders will be challenged by a track featuring 11 corners; with four of them being flat or off camber, this will be a true test for the riders and a fitting finale to the 2015 series.

A long start straight, pro line doubles, rocks, logs, off cambers and huge berms are all in this vision of a perfect four-cross track. Without a doubt it will provide some amazing racing.
