Twinshock events planned

It was really encouraging to see so many Classic and Twinshock clubs hosting Covid secure MX events since the spring lockdown.

Events were held by Somerset, Yorkshire, Cumbria and Westmorland, just in time before the Tier 3 regulations came into force.


And as long as the organisers fill out the correct paperwork and stick to the rules, there is no reason why this can’t continue into 2021 and beyond, as after all it is an outdoor non-contact pursuit, where social distancing can be maintained.

With 2021 in mind, most of us are planning our dates in the hope that normality will be back with us by Easter at the latest, but who knows.

Quite a few organisations have carried their registration and licences over to next year, including the Toughsheet National Twinshock Championship and their provisional dates are:


April 4
May 9
May 30
June 13
July 31/Aug 1
Aug 29/30
Sept 18/19

As you can imagine, there may be changes in the months to come depending on whether tracks are available, and what local restrictions apply, but it is hoped they will be Polesworth, The Grange, Bevercotes, Astbury, Pontrilas, Hawkstone and Culham.

Most of the Evo and Vets classes are now full, but there is still space in the Twinshocks, if anyone would like to ride.
