Team GB Sidecarcross Team put in a superb performance to finish third in the 2019 edition of the Sidecarcross of Nations which took place this weekend at Schwedt in Germany.
Stuart Brown and Josh Chamberlain led the charge winning the first moto with a stunning ride, while his son Jake, and passenger Joe Millard backed them up with an excellent fourth to put Team GB into the lead after the first completed race.
Fourth for Brown and Chamberlain in the second moto kept them on course for a podium finish although George Kinge and Lewis Grey had a tough moto finishing in 20th.
Holding second going into the final moto, hopes were high of a podium finish, but a mechanical issue for the Brown/Millard crew relegated them from their top ten position to nineteenth, but Kinge and Grey came through with a great 13th to secure the Team a superb Bronze Medal
The Netherlands retained their title with a polished performance, with Estonia claiming second.
Speaking after the event Team Manager Dan Chamberlain said “The weekend in Germany was always going to be tough as the track is deep and hard on the bikes and riders. We all made a plan on Sunday morning after we had a solid qualifying day on Saturday. The crews made the best of their starts and rode hard and consistently to finish the day in 3rd place overall. I also want to say thank you to the ACU for their support this year and we are looking forward to next year already.”
Well done to Team GB and everyone involved in making their Bronze Medal happen. Images courtesy of Tracy Thacker
