All in for Owen! Edge Offroad Motul Winter Enduro Series Round 4 – Race Report and Results

WP

Edge Offroad are nearly at the end of their 2019 season, and Sunday saw them host the penultimate round of the Motul Winter Series at the brilliant Westwood venue near Sheffield.

Even though it was quite a low entry, nothing puts the Edge crew off and 100 per cent effort still goes into making sure there’s always a new track at hand for the riders!

The Youth event got off to a flying start at 8.30am for the planned full race duration of one and a half hours. Henry Newton Freeman did absolutely awesome in the Autos class, the only one in his class with a three-lap tally!

A healthy turnout of riders in the Youth B saw Connor Gulbrandsen take his first win in the class, having only just moved up from his 65, great effort! Lucas Travers had to settle for second place but has won the series overall with his efforts throughout, needless to say, dad and lad were over the moon! Elliot Norton rounded out the podium in third place.

Will Cawte

In the Youth A class young Will Cawte thought he’d get a quick ride in before he set off back to the Isle of Man, and took an easy win! Mason Williams Davis was happy enough to get a podium finish in second, and Ryan Liddle finished third; Ryan is doing amazingly well for his first year of riding!

Henry Newton Freeman

Once the Youths had finished, the track alterations were made for the Adults. The Experts got underway first. Edge rider Dan Leadbetter managed to grab the holeshot from teammate Luke Owen, who had an early crash, but this didn’t dampen his spirits! It was Edge supported rider that was first through lap scoring though after the first lap, being chased down by Joe Deakin, Dan Leadbetter and Luke Owen. The battle continued until Joe’s clutch went so he had an early finish! So then it was down to the other three as to who was going to come out on top! Luke fought hard right until the flag went out and managed to take the win, collapsing on the floor having finally put all his efforts into his riding and getting the result he so deserves. Dan Leadbetter had his best ride of the season and managed to grab second off Josh, who had to settle for third; working so many hours and very little bike time, this was still a great result!

Oliver Baker Haste

In the Masters class, though Alex Owen battled through illness, he still took a great win with Mark Raynor in second and Julian Cook rounding out the podium.

A good turn out of Clubman riders was actually great to see – Danny Calkin got a good start, with Robert Allen chasing him down. Calkin ended up crashing and let Robert passed! Robert taking the win, Danny having to settle for second again, and near to enduro this year, Jack Adams was delighted to take third place!

Connor Gulbrandsen

In the Sportsman it was Oliver Baker Haste that surprised himself again by taking the win! Having a great ride from start to finish it was very well deserved! Daniel Wheat secured second place by five minutes on third place man Jack Naylor, with road racing legend Dean Harrison just missing out by less than one minute!

Alex Owen

In the Sportsman Vets class Paul Freeman took the win nearly four minutes up on second place man Rob Miller, who in turn was two laps up on third place Michael Savin.

In the Over 50 class Dave Knaggs took an easy win, two laps up on second place man Martyn Thomas; who surprised himself by getting a trophy and was a very happy man when the flag went out! Stephen Thornton rounded out the podium in third place.

Luke Evans

In the Novice class Gavin Clements was absolutely over the moon to take the first place trophy home with him, Simon Cardis had a solid ride and took second place in front of Liam Harris in third place. Massive thank you goes out to everybody that supported this event and all the Marshals/staff for their continued support.

Robert Allen
