No Clips BMX Racing Yes, No Clips BMX was back in the UK for one night only at Bournemouth on Sat 26th May on the eve of the National weekend. The scene was set and the riders ready at the newly re-vamped Bournemouth track. To give the crowd a slicker show we went with a two moto qualifying system into the next round and used the breaks to send the crowd wild with the givaways which has become traditional at Uk No Clips races, we had loads of goodies from all the sponsors and a frame set from Dialled Bikes which was given away after the final.
To celebrate its 30th birthday, SE racing (makers of the PK RIPPER) joined forces with DC Shoe CO. The result is a unique limited edition colourway of the PK Ripper bike.
