With this latest success, the standout rider of the season is heading towards the class title and could succeed his big brother Mitch, last year’s Junior World Champion. The BRIGHTMORE siblings are clearly ready to write their names large in the annals of the sport. Ashton scored his first hattrick of the season by winning all three races in Sofia. Despite his best efforts, Suff SELLA (ISR-KTM) was unable to curb the enthusiasm and skill of his young opponent. The Israeli KTM rider was forced to make comebacks three times during the races, which he managed well, but BRIGHTMORE was always one step ahead. A big crash in the final race of the night left SELLA bruised and feeling defeated despite the fact he still achieved third overall. The Brit will arrive in Newcastle with a 26-point advantage, but nothing is certain until the final flag. Milan SCHMUESER (GER-Sherco) took his best result of the season by finishing second in the Bulgarian GP, a good return from injury for the German. 
As in the Prestige class, a Junior king will be crowned in just one week’s time, and the UK are on course for two home grown champions!

Ashton Brightmore: 
“I’m really happy to come away from Bulgaria with three wins and the overall, I tried to stay mistake free but it wasn’t easy on this track. In the last race I felt the pressure from Suff, but I was staying calm, and then suddenly he wasn’t there anymore and I came past him on the next lap. I didn’t really know what had happened to him. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to next week in Newcastle, counting the days now!”

After a brilliant night in Bulgaria which proved the country’s passion for the sport, we only have one week until the conclusion of a season which has been a success in every way. The grand finale of the 2024 MotoZ FIM SuperEnduro World Championship will be held in the Utilita Arena in BOLT’s hometown of Newcastle next Saturday the 2nd of March.
