The final round of the 2018 MX Nationals series welcomed a record number of rider entries, some 10 per cent up on last year.

The first of the two-day action-packed weekend of racing saw the recently reworked Cusses Gorse MX track providing a technically challenging circuit with plenty of passing places.

Three champions – Jason Meara, Joel Rizzi, Ryan Mawhinney – were crowned prior to the weekend, with Revo Husqvarna’s young SW85 pilot Ollie Colmer putting in the pace today to take the title, with two races in hand.
