Thanks must go to Andy Lee the owner of Elsworth Moto Parc for working with the 125mx.com team and helping organize another 2st only practice day from East Anglia’s premier practice facility. Elsworth is a jump infested hard pack circuit that rewards a fast flowing rider, the key word here is ‘smooth’ and things will flow, get to aggressive and your speed and rhythm are lost.
We had a complete mix of riders as always and a great day was had by all, Yamaha’s head 2st racer and DEP 2st series Champion Dave Willet steered his 250YZ around as if its was on rails, schoolboy sensation Ryan Houghton had his 85cc KTM just nailed everywhere as he could get his teeth into some adult ‘scalps’ and there were plenty of riders stopping to check this kid out as he put in some great laps. Quickest lap’s of the day went to a super smooth and consistant Darren Redman on his YZ125 who is running top 10 at every 2st Championship event and hopes to see a round here as its his favourite venue (and it showed).
BIG thanks go to all the guys that attended and here’s a selection of images through the proffessional lens of Colin at CJMX Photograhy With so many riders useing the day for testing, play riding and just plain old bar-banging it was fantastic to see you all again and if I didn’t get to say hello, I will at the next one.
