RFX Crescent Yamaha team made their Maxxis British Championship debut at Culham on Sunday. Despite the poor weather during the week as well as the forecast for the weekend, the organisers did a great job preparing the track considering the challenges that they were faced with.


Nathan Dixon made his first rookie appearance in MX1 and went on to qualify in 11th. In race one, Dixon showed great form as he made his way through the pack and was fighting for 7th place, but a small crash caused him to lose a couple of positions. He quickly re-grouped, however was faced with a technical issue and in the end had to settle for 12th. Despite that, he showed great speed throughout the race, finishing off with the 6th fastest lap time. In race two, Dixon was making good progress once again, before getting caught up in an incident with another rider, which meant that he was unable to continue with the race.

Jake Shipton made a heroic effort as he qualified in 16th but was forced to pull out of the first race as his back injury made it tough for him to carry on. We hope he makes a speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing back at 100%.


James Dixon – Team Manager

“Culham provided our boys with some tough racing. Jake put in a heroic effort attempting to ride today after he picked up an injury last weekend, but the conditions and the pain made it tough for him so we hope to have him back with the team as soon as he's ready. We'd like to thank all our sponsors for their continued support,and we look forward to having our youth squad join us for the opening round of the MX Nationals at Lyng"




In MX2, Henry Williams had a tough day, but displayed great determination in both races one and two, fighting against a competitive field of riders. In race two, Williams had a better start and found himself on the edge of a point scoring position, finishing the day off on a high.





Paul Irwin – Team Owner

“It was fantastic to see the team back in action, after a long off-season. The conditions provided the lads with a challenging day, but it was great to see Nathan back on form and fighting for positions with some of the top riders in the group. I look forward to seeing the whole team back together next weekend for round one of the Michelin MX Nationals at Lyng.”
