The opening round of the MX Nationals set for Fatcat this weekend has been rained off. The first round will now be at Preston Docks on April 1-2 and riders who entered for Fatcats will have their entries automatically moved to the Preston round. A replacement round will be announced soon.
A statement from the organisers said:
Really sorry to say that after a track inspection at 8.00am this morning, the track is waterlogged. More rain came last night and with two days of rain due leading up to the weekend we have been forced to cancel the event this weekend.
Working closely with the track owners we have tried to make this decision as early as possible to avoid people travelling and minimise any costs incurred.
No decision has been made with regards re-running this event yet.
The team at MX Nationals want to produce the best possible events and we do not cancel events easily as anyone that was at round 1 last year knows, but on this occasion we do not feel that it would be possible to provide a national level event this weekend.
