Young British rider Adam Sterry is one of the most exciting prospects on the motocross scene, with massive potential. A member of the Wilvo Forkrent KTM team, alongside Matiss Karro and Jake Nicholls, he competes in the MX Nationals and the MX2 class of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship.
‘Stezzer’ was born on 2nd September 1996 in Sealand, Deeside. He was inspired growing up by riders such as Ken Roczen and Dean Wilson, and was competing at a high level by the age of 14. In 2013, he finished fifth overall in the last round of the British Championship at Farleigh Castle, Wiltshire, a performance he still rates as the best of his career.
After finishing school and gaining good grades, he became a full time pro motocross rider for the 2014 season, picking up a victory in the first race of the MX Nationals series despite a poor start, and winning again in the second race. With half the season gone, he currently lies in sixth place in the MX2 Championship.
In 2014, he also picked up his first British Championship moto win in the second round of the series at Cadders Hill, Lyng, finishing ahead of rivals Mel Pocock and Neville Bradshaw. With four of the seven rounds completed, he lies in fourth place overall in the competition, behind Pocock, Bradshaw and Matiss Karro.
