Hawkstone is ON and here’s the final entry lists

No storm is going to stop Hawkstone Park from running the famous international on Sunday, as four times world champ Jeffrey Herlings takes on all comers in the biggest International of the Year.

Herlings missed last year’s race due to injury but he’s fit and ready to go on his new factory KTM in the MX1 class. But he’ll have a tough time from fellow Dutchman and winning MX of Nations rider Glenn Coldenhoff who now heads the factory Standing Construct Gas Gas team. It’s believed he’ll still be on a KTM for Hawkstone, the bike that forms the basis of the Gas Gas that he’ll debut at the British GP at Matterley in three weeks.

Herlings is ready to race

A raft of top MXGP riders will be making their big 2020 international debuts at Hawstone, such as ex-HRC 250 man Calvin Vlaanderen and his new Gebben Yamaha team-mate Thomas Covington – fresh from a season in the USA.

Former factory Yamaha MX2 ace, Frenchman Benoit Paturel, heads the all-new Jacky Martens-run JM Racing Honda team where he is joined by Belgian team-mates Yentel Martens and Julien Lieber. The stacked field also includes former MX2 world champion Jordi Tixier, now on a KTM, and Belgian veteran Kevin Strijbos on his own Suzuki.

Searle pushes on

Experienced GP riders like former British champion, Russian Evgeny Bobryshev, makes his debut for the PAR Homes RFX Husqvarna squad after a year marred by a broken leg. And Estonian Harri Kullas will be battleing for top honours on his CAB Screens Deos Group Honda.

Bobryshev is back in action following a broken leg in 2019

Of course, the British contingent is strong and will be battling to get on terms with the foreign invaders. British champ Tommy Searle makes his race debut for the Buildbase Honda team alongside his team-mate Jake Nicholls.

Shaun Simpson on the SS24 KTM

And former British champ Shaun Simpson is always a threat for the win. He’ll be making his race debut on his own team, the SS24 KTM. Also out on a KTM is the only other British full-tome MXGP rider, Adam Sterry who is riding for the Czech-nased JD Gunnex squad. It’s his first big race on 450s after moving up from MX2.

Adam Sterry on the KTM

Out on new machines for 2020 are Martin Barr on the BRT KTM and Mel Pocock on the MSR Redline Honda while Jake Millward is back on his Chambers Racing Husqvarna.

In the MX2 class, the man who many think will be a favourite to take the world crown is Thomas Kjer Olsen on the Rockstar Husqvarna, backed up by his team-mates Jed Beaton and Kay de Wolf.

Olsen was second in the world championship in 2019 and with champ Jorge Prado moving up to 450s, it could be his chance to shine. But on the eve of the race, Husky announced he’s out with a hand injury. So with no Ben Watson also recovering from injury, last year’s world number three, Jago Geerts on the Monster Energy Yamaha is the top man. And the youngster who made his Hawkstone debut last year for the factory Red Bull KTM team, Tom Vialle is back. And with a year’s experience under his belt, he should be far stronger. His new team-mate Rene Hofer will be backing him up, too.

Style from Josh Gilbert

Of course there are lots of top British riders aiming for a shot at glory, such as Josh Gilbert (PAR Homes RFX Husqvarna) and former world junior champ Steven Clarke, now on the Buildbase Honda. And with 250 two-strokes now allowed in MX2, battling Briton Brad Anderson will be out on the Verde Substance KTM 250 smoker and hoping to make a big impact.

Rene Hofer is coming to the UK

The top men from the MX1 and MX2 classes combine in the unique Superfinal which is a great chance to see who really is top dog around the famous Hawkstone Park.

Two-stroke fans will also be in for a treat as the support class is an EMX125 race that sees Liam Everts, son of ten-times world champ Stefan Everts, taking on allcomers including British teen stars Joel Rizzi and Jack Grayshon on the Apico 2-Stroke Festival KTM.
