I hope you are all ready as the British BMX Series heads off to Derby this weekend.
Derby track is one of the best race tracks in the UK with it’s super wide, long straights and big corners , so there is loads of room for making moves, so don’t hold back …get those elbows out and be prepared to race your way to the front of the pack.
If you have never raced there then your in for a treat as the first straight is QUICK!! watch out for the first little roller at the bottom of the hill as I have seen a few caught out by this one.
Then as soon as you have cleared the first big step/double you are gonna be flying so keep it smooooth .
Just remember that it is probably the longest track in the UK , so keep a bit in the tank for the last 2 straights cos your definitely gonna need it…. #LUNGBLEEDER!!!!
Here is a vid of the track , I used a vid of kids because its a bit slower so you can have a good look at the track and work out what your gonna jump or manual.
