Double Walker podium at Milton Quadcross opener! – Team Report
Well, Questionable weather looked to hinder proceedings at this year’s opening round of the Cromwell Trucks ACU British Quadcross Championships with sidecars and a support class for the 250cc youth as both our Feature Quadcross Racer Harry Walker and his younger brother Alfie took to the track.
Actually far from it, Storm Hannah passed and watered the track nicely, resulting in a perfect day for Motocross.
Fielding their New ‘PAR Homes’ bikes for the first time there where small adjustments to be made at Race Pace.
Harry put in a 3rd Place qualifying time which saw him 3rd to the line in all 3 moto’s.
The Duncan Racing / PEP Performance motor leapt out the gate in Moto 1 only to be connected by a rider in the first turn which included 5-6 top riders. Working through the competitive pack from near last to 9th was a solid and credible result.
Moto 2 saw a cleaner start albeit in the middle of the leading pack, ultimately working through to 2nd place collecting valuable championship points.
Moto 3 was similar, culminating in a 3rd place behind two former/existing British champions, yet leaving other former Champions in his wake at just 20 yrs old.
So it was 3rd place overall on the day for Harry, 1st in the Under 21 class and a solid start to the 8 round series.
Alfie Joe, (White bike sky blue kit in Pics) in images doesn’t really look too different riding style than his big brother!
He showed an absolute masterclass in the 250cc support group taking two emphatic wins and in moto3 a DNF a couple of laps from the end when he in-inadvertently caught the fuel pipe and the bike began to lose fuel. With two wins and a last-place finish (as over ½ race distance was completed) he picked up the runner up trophy on the day !!
Alfie posted times on his 250cc Machine only some 6 seconds slower than the 450cc winner on the day and quicker than other adult competitors in the main group, will he be the one to watch when he migrates to the adult ranks in 2020?
