National Twinshock ‘NEWS’


National Twinshock Championship 2019

Here are some details if you are considering registering for the 2019 Toughsheet National Twinshock MX Championship series. The registration fee enables us as an organisation, to provide each event with programmes and a commentary, and helps pay for the end of season trophies, and entitles you to a cheaper entry than non-registered riders or other organisations that join us at individual events.

Our class structure for 2019 is as follows;
Clubman Twinshock (For registered novices and beginners – Upgrades will be decided at rounds 1&2)
Intermediate Twinshock
Experts Twinshock
Over 50’s / 60’s Twinshock
125 Twinshock
250 Twinshock
125 Evolution (Monoshock Bikes Pre-90)
Evolution Open (Monoshock Bikes Pre-90)
Super Evolution Rounds 2-6 (Pre 97 steel frames and may race with Evo Open class and a split start)
Veterans (Over 40’s and 50’s on any bike in the same race)

Helpful Information
You will be able to collect your IOPD licence at the first event that you attend.
You may enter and pay over the phone at all Cumbria Twinshock events, and do not need to complete an entry form. See individual entry forms for other clubs arrangements.
All entry forms, with phone numbers, fees and directions will be available to download from where you will also find a full set of rules for the championship.
Some classes are over-subscribed, and therefore if you intend to do the full series, it would be advisable to enter well in advance of the event, especially the early rounds.
Transponders will be used at all our events, and your number must be submitted to the secretary.
If you require a hired transponder, please let the secretary know at least one week prior to the event.
Riders must be registered to score championship points, and non-registered riders will be removed from the points, and you will move up and receive their points.
Twinshock bikes must have two rear shocks, be air cooled and have drum brakes, but will include all pre-82 water cooled monoshock Yamahas and other pre-82 water cooled machines. Forks must not exceed 46mm diameter.
Evolution machines must be pre-1990 and fitted with period parts, and have the original frame, engine and braking system. In the event of a protest, riders within that class may vote on the acceptability of that machine.
Super Evo bikes must be Pre-97 with steel frames, and we hope to include them at all the rounds, but may struggle at the opening round until we know the entry situation.
Please help the clubs by entering as soon as possible, as non-registered riders will be accepted as the event date approaches.

Also, please support our many sponsors, and give them something back in return for supporting us.

Finally, if you have any questions on the above please do not hesitate to ask.

2019 Annual AGM


Our AGM is on Saturday October 20th at the Moat House Hotel Stoke, where we will be drawing up a provisional calendar of events, and looking to see if we can tinker with the classes again. We are hoping to have either a six or seven round series in 2019, which is becoming difficult, as more and more series and events come on to the calendar.

Registration forms for the 2019 season will be available from the website or at the Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh, which runs from November 1st to November 4th.

Due to the popularity of the Vets and Evo 125 classes, we may have to limit the number of registrations to the first 50 riders, as they were over subscribed at the first four rounds in 2018.

If approved at the AGM, we may also have a Super Evo class, which would run with the Evolution Open class on a split start basis, with the first 20 riders to register.


Can you believe it?

We are already getting ready for the awards evening at the end of the year! Where does time go?

Visit our Entry Forms page, and you will see in the Registration section a download of the event.

Have a good read through and send it to Big Geoff when you are ready.
