Rock-hard veteran Neville Bradshaw will be doubling up at Blaxhall on July 16 when the Woodbridge club stages the sixth round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship supported by Pro Clean.
The 33-year-old South African, who ‘retired’ last season, will continue his assault on the British two-stroke title and also race as a fill-in rider on the Lombard Express Suzuki team in the MX2 class.
Nev, who’s currently tied for second in the two-stroke class just 16 points behind leader Mike Kras, will go to the line at Blaxhall on his ’02 CR250 looking to push the tall Dutchman all the way to the flag.
“Now we’ve had a few rounds I can see where my bike’s at,” he said, “and I don’t see any reason why I can’t win races – definitely my riding’s getting a whole lot better.
“At Blaxhall I want to beat Mike and hopefully then I can take it down to the final round at Foxhill. James Dunn is riding good too and he’s another guy in the mix which is cool. It’s awesome – the two-stroke racing is always so close and everyone is wide-open. I’m really looking forward to Blaxhall, it’s my type of going.”
Since being picked up by Neil Prince’s team for the last round at Desertmartin the former MX2 title contender has found a whole new lease of life.
“I really love riding the two-strokes but then to get back to some decent results on the 250F is like a massive motivation. I’m working hard at it again, my pace is coming back and since then I’ve been getting back on a decent programme.
“Racing the four-stroke should benefit me in the two-stroke series and even if it’s just one or two really good motos before the season ends that’s my motivation, that’s what I’m getting a buzz out of.”
