Default Millride Teams Trophy

Due to circumstances beyond our control, and with great reluctance and sadness, Millride is having to cancel this event for this year.

A motocross course has been constructed in the quarry adjoining our shooting ground, which can be used 14 times per year. An agreement was made with the organisers that they would not be holding an event on June 1st and that if there was ever a clash of our events and theirs they would switch their event to one of their other venues. They have reneged on this agreement and will be holding a major event with up to 300 riders on the date of our event.

Despite consultations with, and assistance from the police and the local authority, this event cannot be prevented from happening............for this year at least.

The noise from the motocross will be horrendous and access will be difficult to a degree that would render our event untenable. Unfortunately there are no alternative dates for this year which would be practical at this late stage.. Trophies have already been purchased and sponsorship agreed, so we haven't made the decision lightly.

We are planning to hold this event next year, but for now, many apologies.
