This Sunday the Phoenix Tools Premier Motocross Championships will be making its way down to North Devon to Waggadon Farm, Nr Torrington for round 5 in the series. This venue over the years has hosted many top Championships including British Championships and more recently hosted a round of the British Sidecars.
The track has been regraded and will be in fine condition in readiness for this weekend and will be the place to be as there is a strong line including defending MX1 Champion John May who currently leads this years MX1 Championship by 52 points from Welshman Andrew Gillett who will be looking to close the gap. Other riders lining up in the MX1 class include the likes of Belgium star Maarten Cremers, Darren Banwell, Darren Shears, Sam Chapman and local star Luke Hill who will have plenty of support plus many more.�
In the MX2 class it is Jamie Skuse who leads the proceedings who was pretty quick last time at this venue, but hoping to beat him will be the likes of young Harry Snow, Wayne Shimell, defending Champion Luke Mellows, young Dan Thornhill, Nick Wadge plus many more. In the Junior Championship it is Bill Farleigh who goes into round 5 with a 59 points advantage over Michael Rowe, but there is plenty of other talent in attendance so things could change. In the Over 35 Championship it is Martyn Tucker who leads the proceedings by 23 points, but lying in 2nd is local North Devon Rider Keith Hanson who is sure to be cheered on. Other riders include the likes of Mark Roberts, Rob Lewis plus Chris Brown to name a few.
