The opening round of the British SX champs goes off in Steel City with wins for Nev Bradshaw and Adam Chatfield…

The finest line up of British supercross talent ever assembled battles it out on the best track ever built in Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena at the opening round of the Future West British Supercross championship. With 36 Pro riders lining up to do battle in both the British Open and Lites championships, places in the 12-rider Main Events are precious and more than one favoured runner fails to make the final.

The Lites class is won in fine style by Evo-Tech Stevens Honda rider Nev Bradshaw who takes a flawless start to finish victory on the 2012 CRF250 ahead of Nico Aubin and Adam Chatfield who are also Honda mounted.

 

The big race of the night though is the British Open class final. Boost KTM’s Martin Barr grabs the holeshot and leads the way early on until Brad Anderson fights his way past. Ando’s lead is short lived however as a small tipover from the hard charging Honda rider allows Chatfield through on lap nine of 15. Once out front the globe trotting Honda star brings ‘er home safe to take the win on the night. Anderson holds on for second while defending champ Tom Church powers through the pack to third on the HM Plant Red Bull KTM UK machine.

 

 

The series continues on November 19 in Belfast’s Odyssey Arena followed by the Glasgow round at the all-new Braehead Arena one week later. For more info log on to the official home of British Supercross at www.fwsx.com.
