Scott Beaumont and Dave Richardson were at round 2 of the Schwalbe British 4X Series in Afan, SOuth Wales this weekend just gone. Scott had this to say about the event

A great weekend for the team down at round 2 of the 2014 Schwalbe British 4X Series in Afan, South Wales. With sunshine all weekend and an awesome track, both Scott and Dave were feeling good about the race on Sunday.

After practice on Sunday, both riders were interviewed for the Yeti Racing UK podcast then it was down to business in the motos.

Scott won his first 2 motos and Dave had 2 second place finishes. Everything was looking good. In the third moto, Dave and Scott were drawn in the same race against Lewis Lacey and Duncan Ferris. Dave would need a third place finish to secure his place in the semi finals. Scott made the gate and took the lead. Then was caught up in a battle with Lacey and Ferris. Dave was all over them but could not find a way through. Scott took the win but unfortunately Dave did not make it through to the semi finals. His results gave him 9th overall for the day. Not really reflective of how fast Dave was riding, but he will dust himself down and head to Poland in a week for round 1 of the 4X ProTour.

Scott was looking good with 3 wins in his motos. In the semi final, Scott was leading, but Duncan Ferris put a great pass in and took the win ahead of Scott. It was enough for Scott to make it into the final and with his 3 wins in the motos, Scott had the vital lane choice for the race. He took gate 1.

The gate dropped for the elite men's final and Boom Boom got the holeshot and did not look back, riding his best lap of the day. He was on it and took the win to make it 2 wins from 2 races in the 2014 British 4X Series.

Thanks to the whole British 4X team for such an amazing weekend. Huge crowds, great atmosphere and big rider numbers made this one of the best 4X races ever.

Our official edit from the race will be live later this week.

Now the team are busy getting everything ready for round 1 of the 4X ProTour in Szczawno Zdroj, Poland which takes place on Saturday 10th May.
