We've just ridden it...We went along to Penshurst the other day, with Doddy taking Jim Davage and Duncan Ferris to join local riders Chris Turner, John Ginn, Andy Hicks, Scott Lelliott and Rob Leman in trying out the brand new 4X course for the first time.
"It's a course for the mountain bikers," says Doddy, "it's going to scare the shit out of the bmxers! It must be the only course in the country to have a 35mph straight... It's technical, fast, bumpy and scary..."
We'll have a full story on the new course in the next issue of MBUK, on sale 15th July; and we'll see you at the August weekend...
