Shopping Centre Sessions – 19th April / 21st/24th April

Just got word of a unique one off event in Leicester hosted by MGP’s Keelan Phillips running over five days!

“I have been given a shop for 5 days in a huge shopping centre in Leicester called The Highcross, and I’m going to invite any rider to come down and ride, we will be putting on some little shows, holding some fun battles and general having a session in an amazing space. The floor is smooth concrete and the shop is big and in a prime location, but any rider wanting to come down must let me know as theres some rules about bringing the bike through the centre.”

Thanks Keelan.
