BRITISH SUPERCROSS SHIFTS IN TO HIGH GEAR
It's been a long wait for the British Supercross Championship to fire back up after a sold out round 1 at Belfast Odyssey Arena Back in October. Next up is the stunning O2 Arena in London on February 5th.
A tremendous list of top British riders has been assembled for the event including the new Rob Hooper team Maxxis Suzuki Supercross specialist Steven Clarke fresh off the Australian Supercross tour. Clarke will look to topple LPE Kawasaki teammates Adam Chatfield and English - German Supercross star Jack Brunnel who went 1-2 at Belfast in the SX2 final.
Belfast star of the show, KTM's Martin Barr has confirmed for London. CCM star Tom Church who turned a lot of heads at Belfast will also return for London and Liverpool along with superstar CCM teammate and Multi-time British Motocross Champ Stephen Sword. Defending Champ Gordon Crockard will be looking to the top step of the podium after a dissappointing round 1 of the series. Head to Head superstar and current German Supercross points leader, Welshman Ashley Greedy is always entertaining and will look forward to carrying his winnings ways back home in the UK. South African Import MVRD Suzuki rider Neville Bradshaw has also confirmed for London and Liverpool.
Future West is also hard at working trying to secure the rest of the best British riders.
Of course in addition to the pro's a full youth and amateur program will accompany the premier classes. Riders looking to enter the London and Liverpool events should call the ACU to register asap. The O2 event will be held on the same weekend as the annual MCN London Motorcycle Show at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre just across the Thames.
