Dust time at Tong! Edge Offroad Protect My Income Enduro Championships Round 6 – Race Report and Results

by adminJuly 19, 2018

Championship Round 6 of the Protect My Income Championship with Edge Offroad was held at the awesome Parkwood Offroad Centre, Tong, last Sunday.

Once again the Edge Crew put on a simply amazing event for all competitors, managing to create routes to suite all abilities! With grand conditions still dry across the country, the massive down pour of rain of Friday night was actually greatly received! Unfortunately it didn’t make any difference though and conditions on Sunday were still dusty and dry!

The Youths rode a shortened loop of the Adults course but yet this was still good enough for all riders. Blessed by Mr Sunshine all weekend, the only complaint could have been the dust! All the riders had a cracking event, finishing with beaming smiles at the end of the hour and a quarter! Billy Haigh took the win in the Youth A class, with Edge rider Alex Leabetter taking a solid second place without any injuries before he went on holiday! Perry Cooper had his first go at enduro and was surprised to take the third place trophy home with him. In the Youth B class Edge supported rider John Stanley took an easy win, and finishing second overall in the Youth event. Edge rider Jak Heaney took a solid second place, and on his new KTM85, Harry Walker was over the moon to take third place on his first race outing! Harry ended up only being one and a half minutes down on Jak.

Charlie Page

In the Junior class Charlie Page was a late entry, but this didn’t hold him back and he grabbed first place from Connor Gulbrandsen who finished in second – these two had a great battle all day. Young Kennie Brierley was the only Auto on track, starting on the same line as the Juniors, and managed to grab the holeshot! What a little star in the making! Well done to all the Kids, it was tough going in the heat, but you all did all awesome job!

The Adults got underway on the longer loop at 10.30 sharp! With everyone riding in one event due to the longer lap, the Premier riders and Experts got off first with Gav Houson taking the holeshot, followed closely by Edge rider Joe Deakin. It wasn’t long before Joe got passed Gav but none the less, they both had a good battle. Deakin taking the win by nearly five minutes after two and a half hours.

Neil Crayston 9 – Martin Allen 214

Edge Expert rider Josh Bailey had to borrow a 2Stroke for the day due to mechanics with his own 4stroke, not letting this faze him, Josh took an astounding win with a two minute lead on Henry Moorhouse in second and young Burts Crayston on his Baydale DR Racing KTM150XCW was over the moon to take third! Not realising there was a Premier class, Burts thought he was going home in fifth, so Well Done lad!

Jordan Jones continued his winning ways in the Clubman class, with Edge team rider Dan Leadbetter less than two minutes behind in second and Liam Robinson making his first visit to Edge and taking third! The PM Vets wasn’t well supported this time round but Mark Houson took an solid win with David Williams second, and John Steeples having to take an earth bath. Neil Crayston took a good win home in the Over 50 class, eight minutes up on second place Geraint Rogers and Michael Houseman elated to take third.

Mark Houson

In the Ladies class Kate Smith only just took the win off Molly Howe by 40 seconds! Brook Johnson rounded out the podium in third. Nick Manger had a challenge on his hands with Jake Oakley right on his tail! But Nick took full championship points, Jake took second and Rhys White was happy with his third place on the podium.

In the Sportsman Vets class, Phil Dodsworth returned to Edge, easily took the win from Neil Myers, and a very happy Martin Allen took third spot on the podium! Paul Withers was nicely surprised, finally grabbing the top spot in the Novice class, a lap up on Jamie Dinsdale who was also very surprised to take a trophy home, and Ashley  Carroll rounded out the podium in third – another happy, smiley face! Well done to all the riders in the hot conditions.

Next event weekend is July 28th & 29th at the awesome Butts Quarry venue, Ashover, Derbyshire, S45 0HW. There will be the usual Play Day Saturday and then races on Sunday.
