Just days remain until the final round of the British Supercross Championship comes to the LG Arena…
Neville Bradshaw will be looking to seal the deal in the British Supercross Lites class and British Supercross combined overall points standings on Saturday night – February 18 – but will have his work cut out for him with KTM’s defending Supercross Champ Tom Church who looks set to claim his second British Open title. In addition, Sheffield Supercross winner Buff/Wulfsport Honda rider Adam Chatfield has made his way home from America for the final round of the series. Tyco Suzuki superstar Stephen Sword will also round out the championship looking for his first win of the series after winning the final round at Liverpool last season.
Dave Thorpe’s Buildbase Honda star Nico Aubin is looking to steal Bradshaw’s thunder as the two Honda riders sit just a few points apart in both the Lights and overall standings. Maxxis Apico Suzuki boss Rob Hooper has enlisted Washington State’s Joey Ruminer services to put the Suzuki RMZ250 on top of the podium for the final round. Ruminer has been busy competing in many indoor events across the Pacific Northwest in America this winter and is excited for the opportunity provided by Hooper for the final round. Gordon Crockard put in a great ride in Belfast and looks to improve this weekend. Jack Brunell who has struggled so far this year will be out for redemption on his Rabbit Racing No Fear Kawasaki. Rounding out the green team will be long time British Supercrosser Ryan Voase and Head to Head superstar Ashley Greedy on the LPE Kawasaki.
