Joe’s all Go! - Whiterose MXC (ORPA)


Round 10 of the WRMXC Championship, didn’t get off to a good start following torrential rain leaving the original venue at Sand Hutton waterlogged. Fortunately, with the help of the landowner and crew at Dalton a last minute venue change ensured that over 230 riders that had booked in were able to ride.

The Experts class was once again dominated by Ash Harland who took three wins from three. Despite rising well all day, George Walton had to settle for three second places and second overall. Jim Scrafton took third overall.

Ryan Bruce came out on top in the A class, with another three from three for overall first. A consistent  Darren Gill rode well and with three second places took second overall. Anthony Leather took all three third places for third overall.

The B Class saw a terrific three from three for Dan Greensmith, who took a well deserved overall win. Ben Hemingway took second after two good second places and a consistent Tony Watt took third overall with a third and two fourth places.

Dave Thomas extended his lead in the C1 class with three good solid performances to claim overall first. Gav Lowes kept the pressure up , closely following him home for overall second. Steven Todd took third overall

The C2 class James Barret further extended his lead in the Championship taking three from three for the overall win. A third and two fourths gave Chris Tracey second overall and Kyle Formby took third with the help of a good second place in the second moto.

The Youth Open class saw a good entry, with some new faces racing with us for the first time. Lewis Parkinson took the overall, with two firsts and a second. Young Josh Hart took second overall with a first second and third. Elliott Cruickshank came home third.

Another big class in the BW 85 saw Luke Cockburn take the overall with two firsts and a second. A first and a second helped Kane young secure second overall, and two third places gave Macauley Madden third overall.

Two firsts gave Kenny Ryalls the overall in the SW 85 class. A first and two thirds gave Joe Sutcliffe overall second, with Aaron Roe a close third with two seconds and a fourth.

Over 20 riders battled it out in the 65 class, with Alfie Mountford coming out on top, with two firsts and a second. Hot on his heels was Joe Jacques with a first and two seconds for second overall. Three third places gave Rivers Wilson third overall.

Nearly twenty riders in the Auto’s made it a keenly contested event, with Ethan Cooper taking the overall thanks to two wins and a fourth. Jake Naisbitt put in a good performance to take second overall, with Elliott Barrass claiming a good third on the day. Probably the most unfortunate rider of the day must have been Reece Simpson. Two holeshots along with two second places still wasn’t enough to bring him into the reckoning. In the second moto he had quite a big off, and was eventually found in a hedge, and continued to finish the race albeit in last place! Just wasn’t Reece’s Day!

A big thanks goes out to all the lap scorers,  marshals  and other behind the scenes helpers, and also to all the riders that turned up despite the last minute change of venue.

Look forward to seeing you all on the 16th August at Bielby for the Air Ambulance Charity Do, with a great nights entertainment and fund raising on the saturday night before the event.
