Sad Passing of Steve Roberts
It is with regret that Border Classic report the sudden and unexpected death of Mr Stephen Roberts. Steve, age 55, had been involved with off road sport from an early age, both with scrambling and following car rallies in the 1970s and 1980s. By helping Border with their scrambles, it was not long before he acquired a Maico.
In later years, Steve became Club Treasurer and helped to run the Classic Enduros. His help and enthusiasm will be sadly missed.
Our sympathies go to his Mum, his wife Pam and his daughters Ceri and Sarah
2 Stroke/Vets – Champs
The final round of the 2-Stroke and Vets Championship was held at the superb Condover circuit, the battle for both titles came down to the last race in both Championships.
It was Adam Harris who triumphed and went home with the 2012 2-Stroke Championship, winning all 3 races at Condover he didn’t put a foot wrong managing to keep Sean Eckersley at bay with Thomas Herbert clinching the final podium spot.
The Vets Championship was even tighter, after an intense season it was Matt Ryder who triumphed by only 8 points from Brian Staples with Coion Conduit a close third.

AMCA launch rider incentive scheme – GO FOR GOLD and reap the rewards!
Free Dirt Bike Show tickets
Beach Race entry for £23!!
The AMCA has launched an incentive scheme to benefit it’s riders who ride at the most motocross events.
The organising body has for many years had a gold / silver / bronze scheme in place which categorises riders by the number of mx events they rode at in the previous year.
For 2012 the AMCA have added a number of benefits to give real value to the scheme.
To achieve gold status riders will have had to take part in 27 events in the 2012 season, when they apply for a licence the following year it will be a ‘gold’ licence.
Despite the recent heavy rain there are still plenty of opportunities to enter AMCA events and make sure you qualify for these great offers.
This year to encourage you to strive for gold AMCA are offering all riders who achieve Gold status this season by 14th October a FREE ticket to the 2012 Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh!
In addition, they can also enter the fabulous SKEGNESS Beach Race on 17th / 18th November for the standard AMCA entry fee of £23!! A massive potential saving of £77!!
TWO EXCELLENT REASONS for entering as many events as possible between now and 14th October!
To achieve gold status you need to have competed at 27 motocross events between the 1st February and 14th October 2012, all AMCA authorised MX events qualify.
Gold status riders also benefit the following season by receiving preferential entry into oversubscribed events or classes.
On the 15th October we will contact via text and email all those who have qualified with details of how they can claim the above offers.
The AMCA Chairman Terry King said ‘we want to reward our most loyal riders and these two benefits offer significant savings for those riders who take part in the most events’.
In the meantime, good luck and enjoy the rest of the 2012 AMCA season – Go for Gold!!
