NBMXA Nottingham National 1984

The NBMXA 1984 season opener at Nottingham featured in BMX Bi-Weekly Volume 4 Issue 8. With registration, practice and a full National with over 700 riders to be ran in just one day, the NBMXA crew got caught off guard and by the semis, as they had run out of day light and didn’t have floodlights.  So, the race had to be postponed before the finals and finished as a double-header National later in the year. UKBMX regular Chris Simmons (Diamond Back) who at the time was looking to redeem himself in Nottingham after crashing out at the 83 Derby British Championships but after the lights went out he’d have to wait another day.

Shot of Marcus Rich at Southampton we’re thinking 81/82ish.  Marcus went on to become double British Champion in 1986 and UK BMX National number 2 the same year but for some reason never scored a Factory ride.
