Current British MX1 Champion Tommy Searle will be competing in the full series of Arenacross for the first time, starting in Manchester on January 7.
“I’ve seen some of the Arenacross racing before and enjoyed watching it. Then, a few weeks ago, I took part in the SMX Cup in Germany and found I really liked it so, when the opportunity to contest the whole of next year’s Arenacross with Kawasaki came up, I was pretty excited and thought it would be great fun. I don’t know much about the other competitors, and there’s no-one in particular that I’m worried about, but they’ll be fast, especially the French as they tend to be indoor specialists. They are at the top of their game, and I now have to prepare myself to beat them,” said the British MX1 champ.
“I do know it’s not going to be easy to win, as there’s the reigning and all previous Arenacross champs to consider, but I am entering the series with what I feel is the bike for the job, my KX450F, and the aim of winning, and I can guarantee that I’ll be giving it my best shot.
“I’m really looking forward to the whole arena atmosphere and it sounds like the AX team has good plans for the future. It’s something I want to be a part of.”
Searle will be available to meet and greet fans, and talk about his racing endeavours, on the Arenacross stand on Saturday the 29th of October 2016 at the International Dirt Bike Show, Stoneleigh Park, Coventry.
