Back at it at the Bridgestone! 2021 Bridgestone British Masters Round 1 – Preview and Entry Lists

Finally, the wait for national championship motocross in the U.K is nearly over! This winter has felt like one of the longest in a lifetime as we’ve all had to endure this third and hopefully, last lockdown. It’s been harder for some than others no doubt, but either way, our way of life has been put on hold in many ways. If you’re reading this we can only presume that riding off-road motorcycles or watching people ride off-road motorcycles is very much your way of life, like it is ours.

Practice tracks have been flooded with riders keen to get back at it over the past few weeks and now we’re close, real close to getting our off-road events season underway. Okay, for a little while longer no spectators will be allowed to come along and soak in the atmosphere and excitement, but the next month will come around much quicker than those winter months where the clock seemed to slow down and fingers crossed we’ll all be rejoicing in the spender of off-road motorcycling once again after May 17th. Our extended family all back together.

This weekend the Bridgestone British Masters kicks off the 2021 season of national motocross events at Hawkstone Park, and I have no doubt it’s going to be great. Not just because of the array of riders that have entered and the action that will happen out on track, but more so just to see everyone back doing what they love. I’m sure Colin Hambridge and his team at the Bridgestone British Masters are absolutely buzzing about it, even though they’ve got extra work to manage with all the Covid restrictions in place. We wish them the best of luck with it all and hope all the competitors and their ‘bubbles’ abide by the rules and regulations put in place so the event goes off without any problems that would not only reflect badly on the Bridgestone British Masters but also our sport in general.

The first major national event of any year is always buzzing but this year even more so with all that’s gone on in the world this last year. Of course with it being the first major race event of the year they’ll be a lot of interest in the results and to see who is showing good early season form. With riders not having too much track time in the build up it’s going to be interesting to see how it all unfolds and who will take home the bacon from round one. Either way, it’s going to be a tough day at the office for most, as let’s be honest, Hawkstone isn’t the easiest track in the U.K, in fact, it’s one of the toughest in the world! But on this occasion, I don’t think anyone will be thinking too much about that going into the weekend. Just the buzz of being back riding and racing will pull many through the weekend and the aches and pains afterwards (and there will be a lot of them!) will all be worth it considering how long we’ve all be starved of ‘the feeling’. Of course, we’ll be on the case at DirtHub with a full race report and pictures once all the action has gone down. Until then, here’s to a good weekend folks, here’s to being back racing and riding, here’s to doing what you love, here’s to a life worth living. Oh motocross, how I’ve missed you while you’ve been away, it’s great to have you back.
