I wonder if our man The Butcher will be in attendance at the 4x this weekend? Here's the word from Chris Roberts:

The fastest and longest start straight in British 4X greets riders this weekend when arrive to do battle at UK Bike Park this weekend.

Saladini leads. World Cup 4X, Maribor, Slovenia

The course was purpose built for the National Series, The course is built on a hard pack stone surface and is super fast in the dry or wet.

It starts from the highest wooden platform in the country onto a super fast start straight which will see riders flying towards the big quad jump before slamming on the brakes and hitting the berm at the end of the longest straight this year, a few corners and hip jump later and riders will be crossing the line to be crowned 2008 Series Champions.
