Entry for this event is now open so click on the image below to get in the race.
Cusses Gorse CANCELLED;
Due to the reported lack of entries, the Cusses Gorse has been cancelled.
Anyone that paid online will receive a refund shortly.
Each rider will be able to drop a round at the end of the season, which will normally mean dropping a round that the rider could not attend.
Any riders that compete in every round, will drop their 'lowest' points score.
The latest standings that are online, do not now include for dropping any rounds, as this will take place after the last round of the season.
Riders can only drop a round that is actually run.
This system was discussed and passed during the AGM held at the end of last season.
Anyone that did not attend the AGM cannot really complain about the system, and if it is something that a rider feels strongly about, this years AGM will be the place to raise those concerns.
The system will be reviewed again for next season.
New Event Announced
A new event has been added to the calendar. This will now be the final round of the championships at Tincleton on 8th October. More details to follow soon.
Can all riders please ensure that they display the correct number on their bike to correspond with their transponder. Having different numbers is proving a nightmare for the lapscorers checking the results. Any rider that does not comply with the rule will face possible exclusion from the event.
A Lap of The Track ;

There are GoPro laps of all the HMX tracks on the 'Events' page of the website.
It has been decided that this season the Clubman Championship will be dropped. Over the years it has caused numerous headaches for the people who have to compile the standings after each event. The club apologies for this as many riders enjoy having the Clubman championship, however it is the best decision to make in light of the other numerous championships that are in place.
The club have now secured the new Active Monitor transponder system. Any members that already have the red transponder will receive a free upgrade to the new one. The new transponder also comes with a new mounting bracket. The transponders can be swapped over at the first couple of race meetings. Any riders that no longer wish to ride at the club, the transponders they have will be bought back by the club for £30. Riders that do not own a Race Results transponder, can purchase one from the club for £70 (adults) and £50 (youths). Please note that only Race Results transponders will work at HMX events, so if you own a MyLaps transponder, this will not work. ransponders can be hired on the day.
HMX 2017 SEASON UPDATE:
Following the clubs AGM at The Swan, Arlesford on Thursday 17th November, many changes were discussed and a plan put in place for the coming season, as well as future seasons to come.

MEMBERSHIP. Membership is now open
MCF LICENCE. Those who have renewed your licence with the MCF would have noticed a fairly hefty price rise with cheapest licence now at £67.50, but all licences now come with personal accident insurance, which is no bad thing. I fully support MCF in this move, and you too should also see the benefit. Please visit the MCF web site, I know insurance isn't the most interesting subject, but you never know what's round the corner.
