Crendon FastTrack Honda’s Jake Nicholls had a mixed bag of results at this weekends round two of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship, with a 17 – 7 scorecard for the weekend.
It wasn’t such a fantastic day for Searle’s MX1 team-mate Jake Nicholls, who crashed in the first moto and hit his head on the hard-pack track. He pitted to get the bike straightened up then ventured back out and made progress through the field, salvaging four points for 17th place. Then in race two he got a great start and arrived at the first corner level with his team-mate Searle at the head of the pack. But Nicholls ran wide, and then got boxed in by traffic. He then rode a wise race, picking off riders one at a time to take seventh place.
“I had an up and down day – that seems to be the story of my British championship this year.” said Nicholls. “In the first race I was seventh then crashed on the second lap and rung my bell. The bike was twisted, so I pitted to get it straightened up and went back out to get some track time. And I got a few points.
“In the second race I got a great start but went way too wide. It’s a hairpin bend here and I dropped right back to mid pack. It’s hard to pass here and you have to take your time but I rode well. Seventh was a bit frustrating as I’m riding well.”
