Press Release: British 4X Series

The Schwalbe British 4X Series is pleased to announce the dates and venues for the 2024 National 4X calendar, with 10 National Series rounds, the National Championships, and the Dual Slalom Championships returning to the Malverns Classic Festival.

The opening two rounds of the Schwalbe British 4X Series once again take place in Bedfordshire at Chicksands BikePark over the weekend of 6-7 April, before heading to Afan in South Wales on 1-2 June – a staple on the 4X calendar.

The British Series winners will then be crowned over 28-29 September at Twisted Oaks in Ipswich, which successfully hosted the final round of the 2023 series where Jessica Taylor and Scott Beaumont were crowned the elite winners.

After competing in 4X since the very first National Series event in Worcester in 2003, Scott Beaumont has changed his focus from racing to organising, taking over as the series organiser for the 2024 season.

The 11-time National Champion said:
“After competing in the British 4X Series since the very first event in 2003, the opportunity came up to become the organiser of the series and it was too good an opportunity to pass on. I am really excited to use all my years of experience inside the tape to build the experience for everyone at the Schwalbe British 4X Series in 2024 and beyond. I believe 4X is the best, most accessible and spectator-friendly mountain bike sport in the world and I am excited to showcase the sport to a much wider audience in 2024.

“Thank you to British Cycling for their belief in my plans and their support for 4X. Thank you to Schwalbe for their continued title sponsorship. Surf and Turf will be supplying all our promotional materials at the events and Ultimate USE for supporting the whole series with custom-made trophies. Bikestow will also be supporting the series with a custom-made podium. We are also thrilled to announce that the series will now operate using Squorz, making it much easier for riders to follow race numbers and overall series points.”

 @pinsneedle: I've never heard of the private venue in Newcastle but the last time I saw the one at Hamsterley it was a line of rubble through an overgrown mess. It would need a serious revamp and the actual desire to host a race.

 @jonmossnewcastle1: Unless your mate with the private, invite-only track is looking to host a national 4x race your suggestion is meaningless anyway. Is it only open to members of your Myspace group chat?
