ACU Michelin British Enduro Championship Prepared for Round 2 this Weekend

ACU Michelin British Enduro Championship Prepared for Round 2 this Weekend
After a successful opening round in Dorset, the Championship travels further west, but still in the south, to what will be a wet and wild Brass Monkeys Enduro in Devon.

Danny McCanney will line up as one of the favourites aboard his TM 300 after his recent BEC round 1 win and double podium at the Italian Championship. Other favourites you’ve got are local riders Alex Snow and Dan Mundell who will set off alongside Danny.

Snow, who grew up in Tiverton just a few minutes away, will be looking to better or match his 2nd place result from round 1. Young Mundell will also be looking for another podium result aboard his Sherco 250. Other noteable riders are Tom Sagar and Jack Edmondson who will be looking to minimise mistakes and improve from his 5th place result at round one. We also have the pleasure of reigning Enduro GP World Champion, Steve Holcombe who will of course come in as a favourite, especially after his recent victory at the Italiano Enduro.

In the Expert Class, Aaron Gordon will be looking to back up his round 1 win and put the Sherco 300 back on top. Henry Yardley will be aiming for top honours after 2nd at the first round, but Harry Edmondson is definitely one to watch and will want to beat Yardley to the 125 honours. Local man Richard Tucker will also want to better his 4th place result on home turf.

James Palmer is the clear favourite in the Clubman Class after a dominant win in Dorset. Josh Kirby and Ross Kerr will be keen to challenge him though.

In the Over 40’s, Andrew Edwards would be a safe bet for a victory or a podium on his Beta 250, however Vincent Harker will want to take his first win of the year. Andrew Reeves is another man to keep an eye on, as is local rider Jon Tarr!

Richard Hay has got a long journey from Scotland to try and back up his round one victory, however Russell Millward has an arguably longer journey from the Isle of Man! Gary McCoy will want to beat the ‘foreigners’ though and hold down the fort for the local Devonshire crew.
