Santa Pod unleashes Xfest! Excess All Areas!

Santa Pod Raceway in the UK is normally the home of Europe’s fastest drag bikes and cars. But for the May Bank holiday weekend this year, the inaugural ‘Xfest’ event will put it firmly on the BMX calendar, too.

Between the 5th and 7th of May 2012, Santa Pod has gathered some of the best riders from across Europe to compete across Dirt, Park and Street courses. With some great names already signed up and Anthony Ramsey and Ben Joyce from Extreme Sports Events behind the scene, it will very much be a rider-focussed event, with all the trimmings of this world-famous festival venue.

The line-up of contests includes:

Dirt - Lords of Dirt - Round 1

Patrick Guimez and Marcus Hampl are designing and building the course in the usual Lords of Dirt Style. HUGE!!.. that’s all that needs to be said...

The usual open relaxed format will apply as it wouldn’t be Lords Of Dirt without it.

Past riders include:

Cory Nastazio, TJ Ellis, Dane Searls (RIP), Cam White, Ryan Guettler, Jaie Toohey, Josh Stead, Mike Clark, Ricardo Laguna, Matt Priest, Ben Wallace, Bob Manchester, The Forte family, Andreu Lacondeguy, Kelly Bolton and many more !!!

The Dollar Jam will be a cash jam with a difference. As usual the riders that throw down will get an instant cash reward but at the end of all the sessions the judges will decide which of the riders will go through to a Final Jam and compete for the top slots. With course input from Dub Jack, Dan Lacey and Ben Lewis it is guaranteed to keep the riders happy.

There will also be an Amateur Jam over the weekend.
