Tommy Searle will race his 450 in the final round of the British championship at Foxhill on Sunday and is set to face BOTH newly-crowned British champions Graeme Irwin and Ben Watson!
Searle, who many thought woulds ride a 250 to prepare for his Motocross of Nations ride, yesterday revealed to MotoHead that he would enter the race today on a 450 and he now been confirmed.
Searle, who won the title last year, has not raced in the UK this year following a string of injuries.
It’s believed newly-crowned 250 champ Ben Watson will have a one-off ride on a 450 in the MX1 class too, where he’ll face the new British champ Graeme Irwin.
And Irwin will also contest the 250 class, out for the first time on a 2018 Honda CRF250 – the first time the bike has been raced in Europe!
