Michelin Mx Nationals – Round 5 – Wakes Colne 12th & 13th August 2016

Conditions – Generally hard packed clay, warm weekend.   The famous Wakes Colne circuit hosting what is, sadly,  probably the last National race meeting at the venue was in excellent condition with a lot of hard work from the Mx Nationals track team. The hard ground is very much like the Beamish Boy’s home terrain so they both got to grips with the circuit quite...

Michelin MX Nationals – Round 2 2016 – Pontrilas, Wales 6/7 May

Conditions – Hardpacked soil, deep ruts and very rough.   Round two took the boys to Pontrilas in south Wales, as this was the replacement for a cancelled round two at Landrake. The circuit rutted and roughed up almost immediately and gave some pretty challenging racing conditions for the weekend, with heavy overnight rain on the Saturday which made for a rescheduled programme of three...
