The final UK venue this year is The SSE Arena Wembley, another AX great! This year brings new horizons for this round...

1. Wembley played host to the epic 2016 Grand Finale Main Event, which saw a beastly battle between Cedric Soubeyras and Thomas Ramette (assisted a little by his team mate Cyrille Coulon!).

2. In 2017, we went into Wembley with any one of 6 Pro’s able to win the title – Thomas Ramette did it for the third time!

3. We had another one of our Kuberg electric bike races in London in 2016 – the 65’s loved it!

4. For two years in a row, we’ve very nearly swapped Sheffield for Wembley as the Grand Finale…but we just keep coming back to the Capital!

5. This year, Wembley will form the first round of the AX World Tour!

6. For many of our UK riders, Wembley is their home round – so make sure you get along to cheer them on!

7. The venue was built for the 1934 British Empire Games

8. It was originally a swimming pool (which still exists underneath the arena floor!!!)

9. With 12,500 seats, it is London's second-largest indoor arena after The O2.

10. It's steeped in history and has hosted some of the greatest artists and events of all time, including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Madonna, the Olympic Games and more recently, the like of Beyoncé and The X Factor Finals.
