Round two of the Bridgestone British Masters of Motocross series travels to Oxfordshire this weekend and the spectacular Wroxton track with its fantastic jumps and elevation changes.
All eyes will be on the pro classes on Sunday where round one Pro MX1 winner Jake Shipton (Crescent Yamaha) will be looking to extend his lead but, sadly, Dan Thornhill (Cab Screens Deos Group Racing Honda) looks like he may well be a non-starter because of a recurring shoulder injury.
His absence should give the on-form Jake Millward (Chambers Racing Husqvarna) a chance to move up from his current third place. Martin Barr (Crescent Yamaha) will be looking to consolidate his lead in the Pro MX2 class but Josh Gilbert (Buildbase Honda) is expected to take a wildcard ride and he will be looking for the win.
Taylor Hammal (RHR Yamaha) is second and only four points off the lead. He is riding very well at the moment so he should have a say in the overall results.
At this round there will be an extra race – the Bridgestone Cup – for the top 10 MX1 and MX2 pro riders with a £900 prize pot divided between the top three finishers.
Luke Sturgeon won all four of his Sport Tec Amateur MX1 races at round one but the track for round two is very different so perhaps second-placed Gareth Artus will have something to say about the overall.
Only four points separate the top two in the CI Sport Amateur MX2 class with Oli Benton leading from Jack Rowland but with 180 points up for grabs over the two days of racing things can change very quickly on the leaderboard.
Greg Fisher heads up the Spanish MX Clubman class by six points from Charlie Sutton and Mark Kinsley. The two-strokes always sound good around Wroxton and with Chris Povey and Troy Willerton battling for the championship lead it will be a class to watch.
The on-form Ike Carter (GL12 Husqvarna) will be looking to extend his lead in the SMPro MXY2 class while Sam Atkinson will be looking to continue his unbeaten record in the CPS MC’s BW85s.
The first round was close at the top of the Spanish MX SW85 class and Will Haddock, McKenzie Marshall, Tyla Hooley and Finlay Boxhall will all be looking for the class overall win and the lead of the championship.
The 65s in the Rikki Priest Training Junior class look very small around this big track but the racing is always keen and Brandon Buckley and Noah Eastwood will both be looking for wins.
Entry for spectators is £10 and £5 for concessions with children under three getting in free. Camping is free.
