Weekly race fees:
Members: Under 18’s – £5.50
18+ – £6.00
Non-Members: – £7.50
Although annual membership has been kept the same (£20 per rider or £60 for family of 4), it is with a heavy heart to inform you of the reason why race fees have increased. This is due to British Cycling forcing a levy charge, which the Club has to pay, on every entry to a Club race (£1.50 for under 18’s & £2.00 for over 18’s). This is to cover the insurance they provide.
As a Club, this is not something we wanted to do, but regulations from British Cycling has forced this levy on BMX as from the 1st April. These costs are commensurate with the rate applied to competition in other cycling disciplines.
We hope you will join us for another fun season of Summer racing and look forward to seeing you on the gate next week for the first of our pre-registration / gate practise meets.
