MX Nationals statement – date change
The MX Nationals have released a statement detailing a date change to avoid a clash with the Revo British championship:
We, as a championship, are always dedicated to delivering great events for our competitors & fans and a solid platform for all of our sponsors.
As most of you know, there was an impending date clash in the near future with the Revo British Championship. We feel that it is in no-one’s interest to let this date clash happen, so, to do the right thing for our sport, we have made the decision to move the date of Round 5 forward by a week. This is far from ideal, running back-to-back events. We will try to make this as easy as we can for you all.
A proposal was made to RHL to run a joint meeting on the weekend of the 28th/29th/30th but this was rejected by the RHL team so we were left with no choice.
So, to confirm, the new date for Round 5, Cusses Gorse, will be the 21st/22nd August.
We recognise that this isn’t going to suit everybody, and you are left with very little notice. We are incredibly sorry and cannot apologise enough for this but we were left with no choice.
We have also, as a championship, wanted to put plans in place to make sure there were no date clashes next year. We are close to reaching an agreement with the ACU, to return to them for the remainder of this year and for next year. In return, they will ensure there are no further date clashes with the other championship alongside other agreements that will continue to improve our championship for you all. Look out for a full press release when this deal is finalised!
