ASA United GasGas MX2 rider Steven Clarke took a well-earned MX2 overall win at round four of the Revo MXGB Championship at Foxhill today.
Qualifying for the stacked MX2 class was pretty close, as Conrad Mewse was back to his old self after being ill this past week after the GP.
He dominated pretty much from start to finish, putting in a decent time ahead of Clarke and Bike it MTX Kawasaki’s Taylor Hammal completing the top three.
Heading into race one, we saw the Hammal’s team-mate Wilson Todd fly out the gate and grab a strong lead ahead of Clarke, with Mewse chasing. Ike Carter – the youngster that’s been showing his ability at the last couple of rounds of the championship – shot through to towards the front of the pack but ultimately finished seventh.
Apico Husqvarna’s two stroke rider Jamie Law had a great opening moto, sitting in fifth place for the majority of the race but slid back to seventh. We then saw Mewse claiming a win, followed by Todd and Clarke.
Moto two is where things went wild at Foxhill. Mewse holeshotted the first moto pushing hard on board his KTM SXF 250 machine, followed once again by the same pack of Clarke, Todd, Carter with Gabriel KTM’s John Adamson getting in the mix.
Also looking more aggressive in the second MX2 moto of the day was Liam Everts as he worked his way through the field.
A few riders were suffering problems with the chain jumping off the rear sprocket, after hitting one of the deep ruts in the bottom of the valley, with one of them being Mewse.
This eventually cost him the win, and then also cost Todd a few laps later. This then left the door wide open for Clarke and Adamson, with both of them going at it with two laps to go. This then left Adamson leading but both crossed the line at the same time, with ultimately Clarke taking the moto win in a photo finish and the overall title for the day.
