The third round of the British Youth Nationals Series, which was scheduled to take place at Wooley Grange this weekend, has now been postponed until 8/9 September due to the recent bad weather making the track too dangerous to race on.
Representatives from RHL Activities and Race Direction inspected the track this morning and the decision to postpone the event was unanimous.
“It’s a shame we’ve had to postpone this weekend’s event, as we already have everything in place, but rider safety is paramount and the track is unsafe to race on because of the weather,” declared Gareth Hockey, Director of RHL Activities.
“We waited until this morning before making the decision, on the off chance that the conditions would improve. Despite the best efforts of the local club, RHL Activities and everyone involved in this weekend’s event, more rain overnight basically turned the track into a swamp and, with more rain forecast, it isn’t going to improve.”
Entries for this weekend’s event will automatically be carried over to the rescheduled round at Wooley Grange, which will take place over the weekend of 8/9 September. The Pontrillas round originally scheduled for this date will now run over the weekend of 14/15 July.
