Hants and Dorset youth motocross club met for round three at the Silent Woman,Wareham and as always seems to be the case when riding here the weather was scorching. World veteran Terry House arrived at the circuit eager for some sand practice ahead of the following Valkenswaard GP but unfortunately a broken ankle suffered whilst hunting down the visiting Lewis Trickett in the first expert heat ended his day early.
Dean Cummings certainly meant business and showed his older brother Lee how to ride with three fantastic wins in the expert group, Lee Cummings himself coming third overall behind Steve Bain who did well to charge through the pack after awful starts all day only to find Dean had checked out for the win.
In the novice group Rich Burridge nearly threw the overall top spot away in the last heat, after winning the first two he decided to take a sand sample in the last which opened the door for Mark Aldridge to roll back the years and take a win. Carl Robinson was never far away from these two and completed the top three.
Karl Dudman took a stunning win in the first senior race but unfortunately his lack of bike time these last few months opened the door in the other two blocks for the two Barfoot boys,Adam and Bradley to storm to the front and take the one-two.
In the 100’s Jamie Strange, with one eye on a big midweek football match, rode a near perfect day and took the honours ahead of Jordan Comer who managed to keep Jack Alderton and his ktm at bay.
Jamie Carpenter not only won the day in the 85’s but certainly put a cat amongst the pigeons by beating a few of the front runners in the 100’s who ran together for the day, a feat similarly achieved by both Aaron Christopher and Jack Sherwin. Harrison Whittle was first overall in the Junior group and bagged some valuable championship points. In the auto’s Cain Marsh had a fantastic day on what is a tough track for his little bike, another first overall was to be his. Travis Reynolds never gave up and was rewarded with the runner-up spot ahead of Brad Cummings.
