The season is ticking along nicely on both sides of the Atlantic, MXGP is super tense in a class so tight you just couldn’t pick a winner in any race. In the USA it’s similar in the 250 class but with Ryan Dungey now out injured in the 450’s the limelight is now firmly on Ken Roczen for the title.

Many of us head to the MXGP of Great Britain this coming weekend, an event normally well represented by fans and home grown riders alike, a well known rider tweeted recently about riders who may not have the speed or experience to ride at world championship level and I totally agree with him, we just can’t allow riders to race the premier motocross championship in the world because they have the money to enter, in most sports you earn your spot not pay for your spot.

Matterley Basin over the years has produced scintillating racing in all classes, this year will be no different if the weather holds out and the sun shines. Max Anstie, Shaun Simpson, Jake Nicholls, Tommy Searle and a whole host of other British riders in the European championship classes will be looking to do their countries proud, the guys love the support, flags, banners and all sorts of shenanigans is much appreciated by all involved and it makes for a Great British atmosphere.

Enjoy the the read and enjoy your time at Matterley Basin.
