Minibike World Champs … The Build up continues as we interview Pro Class British hope Blaine Blackwell!
Just 3 weeks separates us from the start of the epic Minibike World Championships which takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (25th to 27th) so with that etched into our mind we continue to build up to the event by introducing you to some of the key racers of the championships!

Well we had to go with our very own Dirt Hub Feature racer Blaine Blackwell first up. Blaine currently sits in 3rd spot of the Putoline Minibike British Championships Pro standings with just 2 rounds to go and will certainly be one of this countries biggest hopes when it comes to World Champs glory. Blaine is understated, modest, smooth and stylish, and if mechanical gremlins can be kept at bay his consistently smooth racing style could mean he is a title contender.
We caught up with Blaine to assess his thoughts leading into the World Champs.
Very slow to be honest with you. My bike blew up at the last round so iv’e been getting the parts to fix it, it’s quite a
slow process on your own back.
Yeah the track was graded and the deep sand just put so much strain on the bike. I wasn’t the only one to suffer so I didn’t lose out on too many points. The engine will be back together by the end of the week.
