As the sun went down on day one on the Michelin MX Nationals at very hot Canada Heights in Kent the first thing that must be said is what a great job the Sidcup club, with the help of the MX Nationals crew did on providing an almost dust free race track. At dusk on Friday they started watering the sandy track and went on well into the night using about of the 90,000 litres of water the brought in by tanker.
Brad Cavill continued his dominance of the expert MX1s with another pair of race wins and looks set for another overall come the end of racing tomorrow. Richard Bird and Conner Hughes shared the runner up positions and finished on the same points. Local hero of days gone by Mark Eastwood dusted off his Honda showed a lot of the riders half his age the way round but a DNF in race one didn’t help but an eighth on his second race was much better.
Jason Meara notched up two wins in the expert MX2s from Jake Edey, who had a big crash the round before at Sherwood, with championship contender Charlie Putnam third.
In the MXY2 side of the combined MXY2 and MXY125 Kacey Hird took two wins from Denny Rapson and Jake Winnard while in the two-stokes Joel Rizzi won both of his races from Oliver Beamish and Sam Price.
Ryan Mawhinney was in unstable from in the big wheel side of the 85’s taking two wins with Trystan Williams following him over the finish line on both occasions and with Callum Baldwin third. Ollie Colmer won both of the small wheels from Arai Elcock and Boston Gilbert.
Harry Fetcher in in the lead of the clubman MX1’s from Aiden Christie and Luke Coker while two points separated the top four in the clubman MX2’s as Brad Thornhill has a point lead over Harry Foster and Tallon Aspden who tied in second and third as Ryan King was one place further back in fourth place.
The pro’s will be out for their two races tomorrow and with loads more water going down on the track tonight it should a great day of racing.
