Cookland hauling at Howell! Edge Offroad Motul Winter Enduro Series Round 4 – Race Report and Results

by adminDecember 7, 2018

Round 4 of the Motul Winter Series hosted by Edge Offroad rolled into the stunning Howell Wood venue at the weekend. This venue is a mature woodland with some awesome tracks and trails plus plenty of new going to keep everyone on their toes! This time with some stubble being used, the Edge crew knew that everyone would be in for a treat.

The Kids got things underway first thing on Sunday morning, with a good turn out from across the country. Carcredit365 sponsored rider Brandon Burns got the holeshot in the Youth A class, but Cory Cookland was in the lead at the end of the first lap; by the end of the second lap Brandon was back in the lead! Things calmed down then for Cory and he took an impressive win on 11 laps, followed home just over seven minutes later by Brandon and then Tom Slater took third place.

Juddy Kearford Kids 252

In the Youth B class, Travis Webster took the holeshot but had to DNF after one lap! Motoking sponsored rider John Stanley took an easy win in the end on 11 laps, with RG Racing rider Charlie Page securing second.

The Junior class was always going to be a battle with these young ‘uns, but young Derbyshire lad Ailbe Oconnell took an awesome and well deserved win home with him. Connor Gulbrandsen was over the moon to secure second spot and Tommy Lee Slater, finishing his second enduro, has chuffed to bits to take the third spot on the podium. In the Auto class Juddy Kearford took the win with Jacob Bragg taking second spot back home.

After making a few track alterations to accommodate the Adult event, the main race got underway. With a healthy line up throughout all classes it was well worth the wait. It took a few laps for everyone to settle down, but once they did it was an awesome event and everybody went away with a smile on their faces! In the Expert class Jack Spencer took the holeshot, followed by Luke Owen and then Josh Bailey, with Edge Supremo Joe Deakin being left on the line, we would like to say to give everyone a chance, but his bike didn’t start! Luke Owen led the race for a good few laps with Joe gradually hunting him down! By the end of the race, Joe took the win one lap up on his opposition, with Luke having a blinding ride and taking second and James Palmer rounding out the podium in third.

Simon Walker

In the Clubman class Ben Clark had an outstanding ride from start to finish – having turned his hand to Enduro from MX, this lad is certainly one to watch in the future! Ben took the win from Harrison Utley who has just moved up from Sportsman, and Jake Wright took third. In the PM Vets class Alex Owen had a great ride taking the win, with RG Racing rider Mark Raynor taking a very secure second spot home and John Steeples got back on the podium in third!

In the Sportsman class Ricky Downs has now got rid of his bike issues and took a comfortable win on 15 laps, with a very happy Carl Howes taking the second spot and returning after a bit of a break, Steve Butterfield took third place back to Butterfield’s Bakery!

In the Sportsman Vets class it was good to see Geordie Smith back out again and taking the win by only 10 seconds from Lee Parry in second and Simon Walker missing out by 2 seconds, so had to settle for third! Great battle had all race by these three riders!

Emily Tropman

In the Over 50’s class John Wadsworth upped his game, put his knee injury to the side and won by nearly a minute on his rival Tim Reynolds, who also had a blinding ride, and Andy Dean followed home 11 seconds behind Tim in third. In the Novice class Ben Ledwidge had another good result taking the win on the day, a lap up on Ashley Carroll who took a comfortable second spot from George Didsbury in third place.

Ashley Caroll

A huge Well Done to everyone that took part, especially the ones that were competing in their first ever event! Also a big thank you to all the Marshals, of every kind, that helped out throughout the week leading up to the event and all weekend. A big thank you to the local lads that gave us a hand all weekend and kept an eye on things – much appreciated; easier to work with you than against you!

See you all on the final Play Day of the year and the Finale of the Motul Winter Series in two weeks time, December 15th & 16th at the awesome Catterick Moto Complex, DL10 7LF – to get booked in for this please go to www.edgeoffroad.events or text the Event Mobile on 07557 447084.
