Action Jackson! Edge Offroad Motul Long Edge 3 Hour Enduro – Race Report and Results

by adminFebruary 26, 2019

After a very fine winter, the weather conditions at the all-weather venue of Butts Quarry, Derbyshire, were absolutely stunning on Sunday for Round 1 of the Motul Long Edge 3 Hour event.

Report by Phoenix Media – Images courtesy of JW Forsyth Photography

A new course plotted out by the Edge crew was laid on to give Butts a completely different feel. With the temperature around 14 degrees and sunny, the track rode perfectly, which resulted in smiles all round and some dust!

The first action of the day in the Motul event was for the Youth riders who were in for a two-hour long battle. Edge rider Alex Leadbetter took the holeshot in the Youth event, followed closely by Shamus Pashley. Alex had an awesome ride showing what a great talent he has, and certainly one to watch in the future. Overall Alex took a solid win from Shamus in second and new to enduro William Graff-Baker rounded out the podium in third. For the first time, we had one team event in the Youths with young lady Evie Reynolds teaming up with Alfie Marsden and completing 13 laps of the course in the two hour period. In the Junior’s young Riley Freeman had an awesome ride on his little 50 and took 1st place from his younger brother Ryan and little Oliver Crookes took the last podium place.

Alex Leadbetter Kids

The Motul sponsored 3 Hour Adult Ironman and Tag Team event was packed with talent across all classes. The Expert/Clubman team class ended up with a good bunch of riders competing. The great spectacle with these team events is when a team is made up of one super quick and one quick rider. This is awesome to watch from the sidelines as advantages can be gained and lost over the period of time out on track. After adjustments to the track, the Edge crew were ready to get things rocking and rolling!

Evie Reynolds Team Youth

Will Emery grabbed the holeshot from returning to Enduro riders Doltan Shannon and Saul Hirst following suit! Unfortunately Team Emery/Glover couldn’t stay with the pace and in the end it was the experience of Eurotek boss and his lad, Mark and James Jackson that took the glory in the Expert/Clubman team event, with Edge rider Luke Owen and the experience of dad Alex Owen in second, with RG Racing rider James Gamble and Liam Radcliffe rounding out the podium in third.

In the Team Vets class Tim Reynolds and Simon Nutter took a comfortable win from John Steeples and Matt Baldwin in second and Jason Atha and David Bell in a solid third place.

Jack Ambler Solo Sportsman

In the Team Sportsman class there was some great battles going on and was going to be tough to see who would end up where, but in the end, Ben Ledwidge and Brandon Hunt took the win, with local lads Liam Ryde and Lewis Grainger in second and Danny Balfour and Mark Button in third.

Joe Deakin Solo Expert/Championship Winner

Tom Slater and Billy Matthews proved to be a force to be reckoned with in the Team Novice class! We think they even surprised themselves with their own result! But they took such a solid win that they event beat the winners of the Team Sportsman class!! Brother Jan and Jordan Lawrence had a solid ride and a solid result taking second and Bailey Denton and Dean Pearce took a solid third.

In the Solo Expert/Clubman class, it was neck and neck out of the first corner for Leisure Trail rider Josh Bailey and Eurotek rider Joe Deakin! It was great to see Josh finally settling down on his new steed, putting in some great laps taking third spot, with Luke Flack securing second and Joe Deakin taking the top spot in the class and overall.

Tony Harvey Solo Novice

In the Solo Vets class, Martin Allen had only just landed back off holiday, but clearly, the rest did him the power of good, taking the top spot on the podium, with Paul Westgarth having a great ride taking second and Lee Depledge securing third place by eight seconds!!

In the Solo Sportsman class Jack Ambler settled in quickly, had a strong ride and took the winners trophy home with him, Ryan Keeton had to settle for second and Scott Campbell missed out on second by 17 seconds because he forgot to go through the lap scoring beam at the end, so had to settle for third!!

Simon Nutter Team Vets

In the Solo Novice class Tony Harvey took his first Enduro win ever, and clearly didn’t believe his ears when his name was shouted out for his trophy! Corey Hobson took a second spot home with him and James Wagner rounded out the top three, all finishing on 17 laps.

With such a great entry, the event ran like clockwork and it was fantastic to see so many smiling faces with such a great atmosphere. Many thanks to everyone for supporting the event and Edge; a massive thanks to all the marshals for working tirelessly all day! It was great to see so many new and old faces! Let’s hope we see more of you throughout the year, along with Mr Sunshine!

Next event:
Play Day and Protect My Income Round 2 – March 9th & 10th – BRAND NEW VENUE at Leighton Hall, Carnforth, LA5 9ST. Please book ASAP to secure your entry!
