Lewis Hall – Team Green Kawasaki

“Round three had it’s ups and downs for me. Race one I couldn’t find my rhythm and made a number of mistakes. I regrouped for the second race and finished 8th which I am very happy about.”

Martin Barr – Crescent Yamaha

“Today was a okay day with fourth overall. I’m disappointed with how race on went as I couldn’t pass Dylan Walsh for fourth. I then had a crash with two laps to go but managed a 5th in that moto. In the second race my pace was good and I was catching the leaders then made a silly mistake and lost my flow, but I brought it home with a third. I am slowly getting back to where I know I should be so I’ll keep working. My dad has my Crescent Yamaha machine working awesome so a big thanks to him, plus everyone else in my corner. I look forward to Round four at Blaxhall.”

Joel Rizzi – RFX KTM Racing

“I had a good weekend at Canada Heights. Qualifying was tough on the 125 and the track ripped deep. I was happy to get P2 in qualifying. In race one I had a good race with Ike Carter to end up in P2. Race two I had a really good start grabbing the holeshot and crossed the line in 1st to give me the overall win. I look forward to the next round.”

Howard Wainwright

“I didn’t have a good day at Canada Height after tearing my ligaments in my ankle the weekend before. We always knew it would be a tough weekend. After three laps of qualifying I had to pull in due to the pain and decided to sit the round out to save causing anymore damage. Will be back stronger for Blaxhall.”

Lewis Tombs – Buildbase Honda

“Had a tough first race as got hit from behind in the first corner and went down damaging my back brake. I managed to get back to 12th and had a solid second race for 6th which was the best I could do.”

Dylan Walsh – Revo Husqvarna UK

“I struggled a lot at Canada Heights setting my bike up to the track but I put in two solid motos. It’s not great but solid and closed in on the Championship, so we will keep working.”

Brad Anderson – Verde Sports KTM

“Not a bad day at Canada Heights. Speed was there just silly mistake in the last race which cost me a good overall. Track was good and rough like they should be but now onto Italy this weekend for the EMX Championship.”

Jake Millward

“I had an amazing day from start to finish at Canada Heights. Pulled two holeshots, stayed out of trouble and managed to ride my own race. I felt my speed wasn’t the best it could have been but was enough for a podium.”

Taylor Hammal – Rob Hooper Racing

“Canada Heights was really good over the moon. I finally got two good half decent starts and in the first race made a few passes with 6th which I was really pleased with. Second race I stalled it in 8th and fell back to 13th but managed to get up to 7th at the end of the race. This gave me 6th overall which is my career best in the Maxxis. I really enjoyed everything the track was spot on. Massive thanks to the whole team and the people behind me.”

Alexander Brown

“Canada Heights was very solid for me. I went 7-5 two solid rides and my best ever finish in the MX2 class. Track was gnarly and very slippy but made for a good days racing.”

Josh Peters

“Disappointing weekend for me after feeling good and strong I was looking for a top three which I am sure I would of got. While chasing third place in race 1 I hit a kicker on a jump and had a massive crash resulting in an ankle injury. This is a tiny set back and will be back stronger.”
