What a fantastic day it was for everyone! Though somewhere “up dale” there must have been rain falling as the full Edge team had to set about taking the river sections out due to water levels rising so quickly three quarters of the way through the youth event!

The kids set off just after 8.30am for the planned one and a half hour duration. Young Juddy Kearford in the Auto class took the win completing an 3 laps! With Jacob Bragg taking second also completing 3 laps. Unfortunately in the Junior class, young Ailbe Oconnell was one that got caught out with the rising water level, flooded his bike and ended his day! In the Youth B class Harry Walker ended up being the only rider to turn up so took the win on eight laps. In the Youth A class, CarCredit365 sponsored rider Brandon Burns took the overall Youth win completing a fantastic 11 laps with Tom Slater also on 11 laps in second and Thomas Simpson rounding out the podium in third.

Jacob Bragg

After a short break the Adults got off to a flying start with Jack Spencer leading the pack out on to the first lap. His race was short lived, and had to retire due to a mechanical at the end of his fourth lap. Returning from injury – James Dent took the lead from newly signed Eurotek/KTM UK rider Joe Deakin – who was making his debut on his EXC300 TPI. These two looked like they were trail riding all race! But with James wiping out towards the end of the race, Joe passed, put the hammer down and took the win from James and Luke Owen securing third.

James Dent

Ben Walker made a return after having time out from an injury and took a very strong win in the Clubman class, finishing a lap up on young Ben Clark with Scott Aiktin taking his first podium in the Clubman class in third.

Harry Walker

Alex Owen took a solid win in the PM Vets class, with RG Racing rider Mark Raynor securing second from Martin Allen who took the Overall Series win in this class. Will Howe had an outstanding ride in the Sportsman class and took the win from Steve Butterfield with Carl Howes rounding out the podium in third.

Brandon Burns

In the Sportsman Vets class Lee Parry continued his winning ways with a three minute lead from Simon Walker in second and Craig Dodd returned and took third. Colin Mills took a strong win from Andy Dean in the Over 50’s class with Billy Hewitt rounding out the podium. Adam Bromilow has come on in leaps and bounds this year and ready to move up to the Sportsman class in 2019, finishing a lap up on his second place rival Ashley Carroll, who’s also had a fantastic year and took the Overall win in the Series in the Novice class, with Dean Pearce taking third.

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for coming, and to the ones that dressed up in Christmas outfits, it was brilliant to see! Also a BIG THANK YOU to each and every one of you that has supported us in our second year, 2019 sure is going to be busy! But we are really excited about all the new events ahead, just need a rest first!

A huge shout out to my marshals, regular and not so – without you we couldn’t do this! We hope you all have a very MERRY Christmas and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! See you all at the first event of 2019 – Motul Winter Series Rd 1 at Westwood, Tankersley, near Barnsley on 19th & 20th January.
