Despite the current lockdown, some people are choosing to flout the rules and risk the future of our sport by illegally utilising Forestry England, Forestry and Land Scotland or Natural Resources Wales land.
Illegal activity on forestry land and unauthorised uses of Private Venues is a criminal offence and puts all legitimate events at risk.
The ACU take a zero-tolerance approach to this in partnership with the various forestry bodies and local police. Anyone caught illegally riding on forestry land can expect:
- Your bike may be impounded under Section 59 by the Police.
- You may be prosecuted for a criminal act by the Police.
- If reported to ACU/ AMCA Head Office your competition licence will be withdrawn.
This will be shared with all authorising bodies.
If you have any information, you are encouraged to contact the police through 101.
