Sport England assisted the ACU with anti-doping tests at the final round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship and the results have now been released.

The top two in each class, plus a randomly selected rider were chosen for the tests at Foxhill on September 18, with ALL results coming back as negative.

The ACU released a statement today to announce the results and to thank Sport England for their assistance in conducting the anti-doping tests. The ACU also thanked the riders involved for their “cooperation and professionalism” throughout the process.


Brian Higgins, ACU Chairman commented, “It is some time now since anti-doping tests were conducted at a round of the British Motocross Championships,” said outgoing ACU Chairman, Brian Higgins. “It is important to periodically carry out this procedure so that everyone – the riders, the Officials and spectators can see that measures are taken to prevent the use of drugs in our sport. The riders who were selected conducted themselves in a very professional manner and the results, I am pleased to say reflect this.”
