– Culham is perfect currently, but that could all change by the time that the first bike rolls out onto the track on Sunday morning. Rainfall is forecast for the first part of race day, unfortunately, but it should clear up by the afternoon. The good news is that the track is sandy and on a hill, so should be able to handle the wet weather.
– This is the Maxxis British Championship that we are talking about, so you will not be able to watch the action live. For the fifth year in succession, however, we’ll be providing extensive updates throughout the day. This is the link that you need to bookmark for all of those.
– You, the fans, can feel more immersed in the action this year, thanks to Fox MX Manager. The fantasy game, which is based around the Maxxis British Championship, allows you to be a team manager and sign riders that fit into your budget. Get involved!
– Are you heading to Culham this weekend? The entrance is a little unorthodox, but punching OX14 3DA into your navigation system will get you to the venue. It costs £20 for adults to enter and just £5 for children under five.
