Hurricane Holcombe carves up Bovington! Dorset Enduro/RORE Winter Warmer Enduro Series Round 2 – Race Report and Results

FXR

Round 2 of the Dorset Enduro/RORE Winter Warmer series was a really tough winter enduro, the recent wet weather in Dorset had abated for a few days before the event but, after an hour of riding some sections of the course reminded all the riders of how wet it had been. Thankfully the event was supported by a large team of marshals who worked really hard all day to keep the course following.

The weather didn’t affect the entry with a full line up and entry closed a week beforehand; the strongest class was from the veterans with all classes now represented. One late entry that was squeezed into the line-up was Steve HOLCOMBE looking for an opportunity to ride his new factory four-stroke for the first time.

Dorset Enduro laid out a course of variety on the Bovington training area, it started with plenty of flowing tank tracks with hidden puddles waiting over every crest, and this changed to tight wooded sections where line choice became critical as the event progressed. With a large entry some sections became a real challenge and new lines started to appear. Keeping focused became critical as the wrong line choice could result in wasting valuable time and energy.


The championship boys were clearly the quickest with Ricky WIGGINS, Dom THOMAS and Dylan BAYNTON keeping Steve Holcombe company during the early stages. The going at Bovington can be very sandy and brake pads became an issue for many riders including the leaders. During the final stages of the race Dylan dropped out and Steve HOLCOMBE upped his pace to take the lead and claim the win from Ricky WIGGINS. A strong start from Morgan Deakin in the Experts set him up for a great result but Dean KIFF and Jordan BRIGDEN both managed to squeeze past him. The Clubman A class saw Harry NEAL dominate and gain valuable winter series points over Adam MORGAN and Michael BURGESS.

The huge Clubman B class saw a James O’MARA claim a comfortable win ahead of Jarrod HUTTON. The Sportsman class saw three riders setting the standard Dom CHENNERY rode well to claim third place, Jon DOOR was a comfortable second place behind clear class winner Phil SHUCKSMITH who will clearly be moving up a class or two next year.

The veterans now compete in Expert, Clubman and Sportsman class. The expert veterans saw yet another battle between Gary McCoy and Jack TWENTYMAN with Dave COLES waiting to pick up the pieces. Jack stayed right on Gary’s wheel for the first half of the race; Gary then managed to build a small lead which he maintained to the end. The Clubman veterans saw ever young Simon THOMAS just pip Tim NEWMAN for the win, Event timing man Shane BABEY almost grabbed third place, but Mike RODGERS just managed to hold on. The new Sportsman Veterans has really proved to be popular with some old friends returning to the start line along with some new riders entering their first event. Robert UNDERHILL, Greg TOSDEVIN AND Richard HOBBS led the class home with Robert taking the win by less than 45 seconds.


Despite very wet weather Dorset Enduro provided a great days riding.

Round 3 is a Forest event at MORETON forest on January 26th a rear opportunity to ride a traditional forest event.
