MX NATIONALS ROCKS THE DOCKS – Report & Results

by adminApril 10, 2018

What a difference a day makes! Day two of the Michelin MX Nationals British Championship opener enjoyed brighter conditions, rays of sunshine, a well-worked track, close racing and a full line-up of riders across all classes.

Following a week of tough decisions and a last-minute change of venue, the MX National organisers were eventually gifted with the tools to put on a full programme of top-notch British motocross racing at its very best. Full gates, a great turn out of spectators and cracking racing were the order of the day.

In MX Nationals headline news; former MXGP contender Jake Nicholls gave a rough-track master class, taking both MX1 Pro wins with a considerable margin. Said Nicholls; “The track was really good considering the weather. It was technical, but I felt really at home on it and the bike worked really well. I had a good start in the first race and then, once in the lead, worked away from the field. In the second race, I got a holeshot-to-flag win, which was great. It was a strong field and so it’s great for my confidence going forward. Even better – I really enjoyed myself!”

Lone 250 two-stroke rider Brad Anderson cleaned up in the Pro MX2 and gave the 450s a run for their money. “We were testing the new engine for EMX300, and it couldn’t have gone better. Two good starts and two good wins. The team did an awesome job on the track.!

In the Expert MX2 class, and having travelled the Irish Sea, Jason Meara enjoyed a successful couple of days; “This weekend was a success for me. I’ve entered this season with little preparation and have had only two races under my belt, but we’ve slowly been getting better. Yesterday’s race was just a battle to survival after a terrible start and a small crash, I managed third. Today was much better although my starts weren’t great, the riding was a lot better and I got two wins!”

Rossi Beard, appeared to have an easy couple of days in MXY2. He was noticeably better than the rest of the field, at times lapping six seconds over the next placed rider. He is a fine example of how the MX Nationals nurtures racing talent; MXY1 champ last year, and already making his mark in MXY2. RFX Crescent Yamaha’s Joel Rizzi also showed his talent. Four out of four race in-class wins and highly-placed against the 250s.

Jack Grayshon and Ryan Mawhinney enjoyed wheel-to-wheel battles in the Open 85 class big-wheel, but they had young small-wheel rider Bailey Johnston nipping at their wheels. “Pleased with my results. The weather conditions didn’t affect my overall performance. Can’t wait for round two, it’s such a great event.”
