North Region BMX Championships in Knowsley

Published on: Monday, 17-March-2014

The North Region BMX Championships are coming to Knowsley!

Over 250 riders are expected to take part in this year’s event on Sunday, 30 March at Knowsley Velodrome and BMX Park.
 
It’s free of charge to come along and watch this spectacular event.  Parking is available at the Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park and at Lord Derby Academy on Seel Road, Huyton, L36 3DG. 

The day’s racing action will commence at 12.00 noon, but riders can pre-register at www.britishcycling.com or they can also register on the day between 9.00am and 10.30am.
The day will also be a fantastic opportunity for students from the Lord Derby Academy, who have volunteered to help out at the event, as well as gaining invaluable experience at such a high profile competition.  Such skills will be beneficial in their chosen career path, as well as a great addition to their curriculum vitae.

Councillor Eddie Connor, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Community and Culture said “Knowsley has a wealth of cycling facilities and cycling programmes for all levels and abilities.  I’m delighted that that we are able to host this regional championship here in the borough.  Whether you are taking part or a spectator, I hope it inspires you to come along and use our world-class BMX and Velodrome facilities.”
