Season start delayed until May
Following submissions from many valued partners, riders and friends requesting an early announcement, it has been decided to postpone the start of the Championship until May. With the pandemic still raging across the country, the decision has been made to delay the start until May in order to hopefully hold the event in as near to normal conditions as possible. Whilst contingency plans were in place to start as soon as the UK Government lifted the current ban, it is hoped that by May spectators will be permitted to attend outdoor events with Covid secure restrictions in place.
Finding alternative dates is never easy, but with the cancellation of the Scottish Six Days Trial, new possibilities have opened up and the first round is now scheduled for Saturday May 1st, still at Hookwood in Surrey which always offers a special start to the season.
Series Manager, Brian Higgins enlarged, "Making decisions like this is never easy, but we wanted to give riders as much time as possible to prepare and to be certain as far as possible that they target their training to a concise date. We thank everyone for their co operation and we will monitor the situation going forward and trust that the virus can be controlled and improve things over the next few weeks".
