Get Ready For Quad Bike Beach Event In Weymouth
8:03am 6th November 2014
Quad bikers from the age of 6 to 70 will be roaring across the sand this month as Weymouth International Beach X returns for its second year.
The free event is being held on the 15th and 16th of November with crowds expected to pack out the Esplanade to enjoy the action and range of stalls.
Duncan Irons from O.R.E Events told Wessex FM: "The thing about Weymouth is the spectating here is fantastic! We've pushed up man-made jumps with diggers and we've got children riders from 6-years- old on quad bikes and the oldest I think is 75."
Riders will be hitting speeds of 70mph, flying over Dare Devil jumps and weaving through Bomb Holes on the one-mile long course.
The racing will be in motocross style with short races on the 'Dry Sands'.
Wessex FM went down to meet the organisers of the event and get a little taster of what we can expect.
