Anstie top Brit in crash-hit Hawkstone

Max Anstie took a double win in the MX1 class at the Hawkstone International on Sunday as a rash of crashes ruined the chances of fellow quick Brits.

Anstie romped to a double MX1 win

Brad Anderson, Tommy Searle, Shaun Simpson, Ben Watson and Conrad Mewse were among the top men whose day was ruined by spills on the fast yet roughening track.

Ando pushed on in the MX2 opener but fell hard one lap later

Brad Anderson wiped out in the opening MX2 race and was airlifted to hospital with facial injuries. A scan later showed he had no major breaks but his face was a mess. The race – led by ex-British champ Adam Sterry – was red flagged and the delay meant the following races were shortened.

Anderson chases Conrad Mewse and Ben Watson up the famous hill

Sterry was in incredible form, winning the re-started race with ease. He took control right from the start and never looked uncomfortable as he pulled away to an easy win from Yamaha’s Jago Geerts, Henry Jacobi, Alvin Ostland, Thomas Kjer-Olsen and Conrad Mewse. Ben Watson crashed and failed to finish.

Weight back for Mewse in the re-run moto

Sterry was also holding a commanding lead on the penultimate lap of race two, then fell on the exit of the bombhole. He couldn’t get his bike back on track as he’d fallen down the side of the jump, but eventually remounted and finished sixth as British-based Dylan Walsh took the moto win on his Revo Husqvarna.

This is the moment Sterry lost race two

Walsh, who had been 21st in the first moto, beat Husky’s Mikkel Haarup, KTM’s Bas Vaessen and Jago Geerts. Mewse, who fell, got back on to take ninth from Watson.

Sterry was the fastest 250 man

Geerts finished the day level on points with Sterry, but snatched the overall due to his second moto finish. Haarup took third.

Close action in the MX2 class

In the MX1 class, it looked like Briton Shaun Simpson was going to emulate Sterry’s runaway win. In the early stages of the race, Tommy Searle had Simpson in his sights until factory Husky man Arminas Jasikonis wiped out the Brit in spectacular style. Both men retired, but Jasikonis had done enough laps to be credited with 18th.

Simpson leads moto one

Simpson held a commanding lead, but with a handful of laps left, lost the front end and went down. He was quickly back on the bike, but in third place as it had allowed KTM duo of Max Anstie and Max Nagl to get by.

Anstie took the win in MX1

The German tailed the Brit right until the end of the moto, with Anstie just taking the win from Nagl with Simpson third from Harri Kullas, Ivo Monticelli, Evgeny Bobryshev, Petar Petrov and Mel Pocock.

Searle clashed with Jasikonis and wasn’t too happy about it

In the second moto, Simpson once again had a great start and led from Nagl and Anstie, but then fell. He remounted quickly but then went down again, this time hard. He dislocated his shoulder, yet still managed to go back on the track and pull his stricken bike out of the racing line as it was on the blind side of a jump.

Simpson goes down

Simpson had his shoulder popped back in at the trackside but took no further part in the action.

Simpson dislocated his shoulder

At the front, it was a three-way battle between the Standing Construct KTM team-mates Anstie and Monticelli, and Sarholz KYM man Nagl.

Monticelli was one of the surprises of the day

Monticelli led for the first half of the moto, but Anstie got by pulled away to win by 9.9secs from Monticelli who had a similar gap over Nagl at the flag. Jasikonis took fourth from Searle, who must have been worse for wear after his first moto tumble. The Kawasaki man also had a small crash in the race.

Simpson leads moto two

Ryan Houghton took a strong eighth, with Todd Kellett tenth – a place in front of Bobryshev.

Tommy Searle chases the leaders in moto two

So Anstie’s double gave him the overall from Nagl and Monticelli in a KTM clean-sweep.

Monticelli won the Superfinal with ease

In the combined MX2 and MX1 Superfinal, the 250s were outclassed by the big bikes. It was Monticelli who was the surprise package as he took the holeshot and just pulled away at the front for an unchallenged victory from Nagl and Jasikonis.

Jasikonis had an eventful day

Thomas-Kjer Olsen was the star of the 250s as he put his Husky into fourth, one spot in front of Max Anstie. Sterry, the fastest 250 man by far all day, retired from the race.

Watson didn’t have a brilliant day by his standards
