See awe­some ac­tion at close quar­ters when BSB hits Cad­well

Nowhere can you get closer to pro-level racers on track than at Cad­well Park’s Hall Bends – a stun­ning sec­tion of track buried in the woods at the Lin­colnshire track where the fence is just me­tres away from the bikes. Right, left, right, left and then the tight right of the hair­pin. While you won’t see much over­tak­ing down here, it’s hard not to ad­mire the BSB boys man­han­dling their 200bhp ma­chines through one of the trick­i­est parts of the cir­cuit.

Of course, there’s also the fa­mous moun­tain sec­tion where many of the BSB guys launch into the air af­ter a tight up­hill sec­tion. With King of the Moun­tain Josh Brookes back this year, it’s sure to be spec­tac­u­lar. Set in an ac­tion-packed mid­dle part of the sea­son where rid­ers are look­ing to se­cure their place in the three-round, ti­tle-fight­ing show­down, the rac­ing is al­ways dra­matic and while Cad­well doesn’t pos­sess an abun­dance of pass­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, it’s al­ways fas­ci­nat­ing to watch some of the world’s best racers try to find ways around their op­po­nents.
