A huge charachter in the sport who who was grately admired and also responsible for bringing Shanaze Reade through the ranks while remaining a mentor to many other good riders to come out of the club.
The track as always will be in pristine condition and the club now boast a newly fitted Bensink gate. So come up to Crewe and enjoy a fun weekend of BMX and for you older riders there is a shot at some good prize money in the payback event, so put this date in your diaries!
