Neil’s first race will be the 4X National Series race starting at Chicksands in Bedforshire on Sunday 12th March, plus further rounds throughout the year held all over the UK.  Neil will also be racing in the 4X National Series and British BMX Championships in August.

Winning numerous accolades, Neil has been a competitive racer in BMX and 4X since for around 35 years. Starting out as a young novice around 6 years old Neil started competing in regional races, eventually moving onto national and international racing from only 10 years old.

His most impressive feat has to be becoming British National Champion three times, with a BMX British National Championship win in 2010, and 4X British National Championship in both 2013 and 2016 (in his age categories).  Winning such an accolade three times and in two disciplines is a spectacular achievement and has motivated Neil to continue into the next season with renewed enthusiasm and momentum.
