Nev Bradshaw will be back on a four-stroke, riding for Neil Prince’s Lombard Express Suzuki team in the absence of Kevin Wouts, from this weekend’s British championship at Hawkstone Park. Wouts is due to undergo surgery next week to his vertebrae which he sustained at Preston Docks MX nationals. Kevin is expected to return in approximately six weeks.
It’s not yet known whether Bradshaw will stay for the rest of the season or just fill in for Wouts until he returns.
Bradshaw, who has ridden for the team in the past, is currently runner-up in the British two-stroke championship on his old CR250 which is also scheduled for Hawkstone so it’s not likely he’ll contest that series.
