THE RETURN OF THE WOR EVENTS MICHELIN XCE SERIES….TINY WARRIORS & THE KIDS RACING COMES BACK…
XCE stands for Cross Country Enduro and has proved a really popular series back in 2014/15 and 16. The series took a break for 2017 and was replaced with the Timecard series but that was never as popular and now gives way to the MICHELIN XCE 2018.
There is also BIG NEWS for the MICHELIN XCE as the welcome return of a KID’s championship comes back…AND the “TINY WARRIORS” also return and run on MICHELIN XCE days …A real action-packed family dirt bike day indeed…
So, here’s the breakdown… A 5 round series …plus a wildcard, the Riders best 4 rounds to count. Set on superb WOR, quality venues around, Staffs, Shrops, North and Mid Wales…
The TINY WARRIORS – (4yrs to max 8yrs) will run from 9am till 10am in their superb 1 hr ride challenge – Fully marshalled, visible and walkable course for all parents, a start flag and chequered flag. And Every rider gets an award on the day and of course ..for its 3rd year …TINY WARRIORS is Free of Charge!!!
Then at 10.30am, for 1.5hrs …It’s the return of the Kids proper “racing” .. WOR have been pioneer’s over the years with Kids Enduro racing, in fact the first to do it but a sad demise in numbers and riders saw the kid’s races stop back in 2016…However it is now hoped there are a few more kids ready to step up from Tiny Warriors and take on the racing. … A much bigger track, a proper series and championship…THE MICHELIN XCE for Kids,again 5 rounds and a Wildcard as per the adults…
The Kids will have 3 simple classes. – 8-9’s – 10-11’s – 12-13’s ..on 50cc to 85cc …whatever the little rider is happiest on. It is hoped a few riders will and mums and dads will jump on this chance to see kids racing return to WOR and nurture the future of the sport along with the entry level Tiny Warriors. Kids races will be £30.
MICHELIN XCE day will then have the main event, the adults, starting at 12: 30pm..for a Straight 2 Hour XC battle…A fast race on flowing tracks that always see riders enjoy the terrain and the duration as it allows all riders to give their best.
With Enduro Playdays on the Saturday before and camping FOC and encouraged ..These really will be superb family based, fun weekends with of course the Professional and superbly organised Racing to enjoy… And with awards on the day and a series presentation to look forward to at the end of the year ..it really will be a cracking series to sit alongside the PUTOLINE NHS and the new EXTREMISM championships for 2018.
Classes are: EXPERT/ CLUBMAN / VETS A / VETS B/ OVER 50/ SPORTSMAN/ NOVICE / YOUTH
