MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK  & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK
Mountainview Motocross Track has now opened for practice days and so far the feed back has been very good . Its only half a mile from our main track and is a sand based track suitable for riding in all weather .
 
We have also set up a practice track at ‘The Desert ‘ which is out in the back section of the track . It is used on set days as we alternate between tracks .
 
Both tracks run under controlled timed session and groups are grade according to ability ie grade A riders will not ride out with Grade c , youth will ride separate from adults and quads will not be out with solos etc . this way we keep safe practice and everyone gets loads of safe practice time . Flag marshals and first aid trained staff are always there.
 
Normal days of opening at this stage are Monday to Friday from 10am for all bikes – quads , sidecars , solos but riders must book in for week days – contact 07927 990313 before 9.00pm the previous night . During the summer time the track will be open to 8.00pm on a Thursday night providing riders are booked in .
 
Saturdays will vary from week to week as we try to give everyone maximum track time ie One week all Solos Youth and adult , next week maybe Quads and adult solos or youth might be at the Desert while adults are at Mountainview – follow us on face book to see what is happening each week or text 07731438170 or email marlene.sykes631@btinternet.com for updates.
