Buzzing at Butts! Edge Offroad Motul Winter Enduro series Round 2 – Race Report and Results

by adminOctober 30, 2018

Edge Offroad continued their 2018 season on Sunday at the brilliant Butts Quarry venue near Chesterfield, with the second round of their Motul Winter Series.

Report by Phoenix Media – JW Forsyth Photography

The atmosphere was buzzing, maybe due to the sunshine effect! It was great to see the event being well supported considering how many events were on that day!

The Youth event started at 9am for the planned one and a half hour duration. Every single one of the determined kids managed to finish the course in the cold and sunny conditions, with smiles all round.

Harry Jordan

Young Harry Jordan in the Auto class took the win completing an astonishing 11 laps! With first timer Oliver Crookes on his brand new Auto taking second completing 7 laps and Juddy Kearford couldn’t continuing his winning ways due to a mechanical, but got a third place finish.

Ailbe Oconnell continued his successful season so far in the Junior class taking a win from young Archie Jordan in second.

John Stanley

Motoking sponsored John Stanley took an easy win in the Youth B class, having a good battle for most of the race with the Youth A’s! Jack Sandland took an easy second place and still very new to Enduro, Kane Atkinson was chuffed to take third spot on the podium! In Youth A, young MX rider Ben Clark too the overall Youth win completing an fantastic 19 laps, a lap up on second place Brandon Burns and Thomas Simpson rounding out the podium in third.

Mitch Parkes

After a short break, and alterations to the track for the Adult event, they got off to a flying start at 11am prompt! The Experts and PM Vets classes got underway first. Lewis Ellis took an awesome holeshot but it was “returning from his Sea to Sky injuries” Joe Deakin that came through lap scoring first, at a fair pace considering he was only supposed to be taking it steady! Josh Bailey, on home turf, and Lewis Ellis had an fantastic battle for the full two hour duration, but Edge rider Josh got the better of him and took second spot, and Lewis had to settle for third.

John Wadsworth

The PM Vets class was quite poorly supported, but a very happy Martin Allen took a well deserved win having just moved up from Sportsman Vets! John Steeples was happy to take second place home with him and Mark Lodge rounded out the podium in third place!

In the Clubman class Harrison Utley got the hole shot, and was in the top three until just after the half way mark when he decided to have a fight with a tree, and lost! But Jamie Rodgers had a storming ride! Having not ridden for a while and having an off mid way through the event, Jamie nearly quit! So he was very happy to find he had won at the end of the two hours. Billy Haigh, who has just moved up from Youth A, just missed out on first place by one second!! Though he was gutted, he had an absolutely storming ride and should be really proud of his achievements. Daniel Jordan was only 10 seconds behind Billy – very close racing in the Clubman class!

Joe Deakin

Lee Parry had a fantastic ride in the Sportsman Vets class taking the win from Lee Parry in second with Nic Boll having a great ride finishing third. New to Edge Offroad, Mitch Parkes, took the win in the Sportsman class only 21 seconds in front of second place Tom Simpson! Ricky Downs has got his sights high for this winter series, but having no end of bike problems this year, had to settle for third.


John Wadsworth was surprised but happy to take the win in the Over 50 class, two seconds in front of Mark Glover in second and Nigel Fox was pleased to keep his point tally going from the first round by taking third. Dean Pearce took was over the moon to take the win in the Novice class having battled all year to get a mega result, his hard work has paid off! New dad Ashley Carroll keeps creeping up the podium ladder taking second this week and Matt Wood, aiming high in this series hoping to finish with a podium, took third place on the day.

Massive thank you goes out to everybody that supported this event and all the Marshals for their continued support. Next event weekend is 17th & 18th November with Winter Series 3, at a new venue near Ripon. Entries are now open for both – Event mobile 07557 447084, or book online www.edgeoffroad.events
