National Twinshock ‘NEWS’


Nowt Dooin now till next year.

Ah Well. Looks like we did our best under the circumstances.

A big thank you to all of the members of the Twin Shock scene for making what we had, happen!

Especially Big Geoff , Big Al Hardy and Rock ‘ard Darren Hudson. With out them, non of what we have would ever have been possible.


Our application forms are ready for next year (2021), get them filled in and have something to look forward to.

Every one has plenty of time now to get their war horses battle ready.  No one can say they didn’t have time.


I can’t say it on here how I really mean it, but  ‘stuff’ the Corona Virus!’  will have to be the polite way to say it.

The fact that we have an Over 60’s class shows that we have some of the toughest people on earth participating in our sport!

Lets keep fit,well and healthy and start next year ready for anything.

Keep safe.




Well it looks like a few events are getting the go ahead, as clubs try to get us back to some form of normality. Last weekend the Somerset Club successfully ran their event, and the UK Evo crew are running at Wickwar this weekend. Other events now planned that I am aware of are as follows;

August 9 Westmorland MC Kendal Classic Revival Scramble at Crooklands, Kendal. AMCA Classic & Twinshocks. A few places still available. Online entries at classicmxwales website.

August 30/31 Cumbria Twinshock Matt Murphy Memorial MX at Hawkstone Park. IOPD Twinshock, Evos, Super Evos, Vets & Modern. See following post for entries.

September 6 Yorkshire Twinshock MX at Monkton, Beverley. AMCA Classics, Twinshock & Evos. Entries by email to

September 12/13 Cumbria Twinshock King of the Castle at Farleigh. Most classes full. Call Chloe Hudson on 07887-407590 for final places.

September 19/20 Cumbria Twinshock MX at Culham, Abingdon, Oxon. IOPD Twinshock, Evos, Super Evos, Vets & Modern. See following post for entries.




Great news. Yes, it’s on.

Sunday / Monday August 30/31.

The only downside is that it won’t be the Festival of Legends, due to the ongoing Covid restrictions.

The event is open to all riders, but priority will be given to those that entered round one of the Toughsheet series at Polesworth. Please contact Chloe Hudson on 07887-407590 after 6pm if you would like to transfer your round 1 entry to Hawkstone and pay the remainder to secure your place. Entries will then open up to others on Monday July 27.

Entry forms are not required for Toughsheet registered riders, but others must get their paperwork and payments to Chloe ASAP as we can’t be handling it on the day. The entry forms will be on the website soon or e mail for a copy.

There are all the usual Twinshock, Evo, Super Evo, and Vets classes, plus an extra Modern class, but each class is limited to the first 40 to enter.

It would be great to see you all back out there, and especially as a tribute to the late great Matt Murphy.

Things might be a bit different, but I am sure you will all join us and stick to the Covid rules to get this event to take place.

Riders that can’t make Hawkstone, can also transfer their round 1 entries to Culham, which takes place on September 19/20.





We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news but after discussions with our organisers, we are having to cancel round 5 at Astbury on July 19, which was to be run by Lancashire Twinshock.

At this time we are unsure of the government restrictions, and with an announcement not being made until the first week in July, it would just not be possible to hold the event and organise the necessary Covid 19 requirements to keep everyone safe.

Following several committee discussions we have decided to cancel this year’s championship with immediate effect, as only two rounds remain as yet unaffected.



Darren Hudson, though may still run the Hawkstone and Culham events on August 30/31 and September 19/20 as open non championship weekends. If you have already entered for a previous round, and wish to roll it over for Hawkstone, please contact Chloe Hudson to arrange.

Registrations and licenses will roll over to 2021, when we hope to get back to something like normal.

Please use the email tab if you want any further info, or to discuss the outcome.



Lock Down News 30-04-20

Well it’s been a while since I posted anything due to the lockdown.

Obviously, we have lost round 2 at the Grange this weekend, which is a big shame as the Telford MXC have done a shed full of work on the circuit and we were looking forward to returning there.

We will be looking at the government and motorsports governing bodies advice, which is likely to be next Thursday May 7, but it does not look encouraging, with the social distancing having to continue for some time yet. And as we all know it takes more than one to fix a Maico in the paddock.

If the government eventually relaxes the lockdown, and allows mass gatherings, it still does not allow for things like first aid provisions, signing on, accidents, spectators etc so I cannot really give you any good news.

Round 3 was to be Bevercotes on May 24, and the AMCA will also make a decision next week.

We may lose most of the series to this virus, but the safety of everyone is paramount, and if we come out of this and there is room for the odd event in late summer we may try and get a couple sorted.

With regards to registrations, if we do not run any event this season, we will roll over to 2021, or you can request a refund by sending me a PM.

Please keep up the good work and stay safe and we hope to see you soon.
