BMXTalk race team headed off to the south east last weekend to hit up rounds 2-3 of the British BMX series at Cyclopark.
For those of you that don’t know about Cyclopark, it is somewhat of a gnarly track , it starts off with a super fast Bensink gate that drops into a nice fast start hill , the first straight is all about speed and jumping into a tight first berm , then keep the pedals turning up the 2nd straight and then we are into the all important 3rd straight rhythm section …this is one of the hardest sections in the UK that includes big and deep gaps and requires a whole load of skill , then just hold on for the 4th and last straight which is by no means easy and we are home and dry.
The BMXTalk team had a full turn out of riders and they were all feeling confident going into the race ,the team had already spent a good few weekends down at the venue to get used to the track .
Everyone arrived on Friday for the usual practice session and confidence was running high, the team tent was set up and everyone was ready to get stuck into the racing the next day.
