If you have been a reader of the Anglian blog for a while, you will know that we have been sponsoring a talented young motorcross rider called Daniel Brooks. He was competing in some tough competitions last year against boys much older than him, but this season he will be hoping to build on last season’s experience.
Daniel’s Dad, Matt has got in touch with this update;
“It’s been a long time since we last spoke but here is a little bit of news – after a rubbish Summer weather-wise, as far as racing goes and a decision to focus on practising this year instead of going racing, we finally decided it was time to make a come back Dan did this Anglian backed KTM at the Gest MX club at there Iden raceway, not too far from Hastings in Sussex. I think we picked the best weekend so far this year and against a field of 23 other riders, Dan rode really well just off the back of the leading two, finishing the day with a 3rd and two 4th places, giving him fourth overall.
We have another meeting planned for the 26th and 27th August with the same club at Sellindge in Kent and then we are off to Newcastle for a round of the British Youth National Championships, which is Dan’s target championship for next year.”
