BUSY WEEKEND AT BLAXHALL FOR RFX CRESCENT YAMAHA



It was a busy weekend for the team as the Maxxis British Championship made its way to Blaxhall for the third round of the series.  The team awning hosted all six of the team riders, which made for an action-packed weekend. In MXY2 Joel Rizzi and Bobby Bruce took on the challenge of competing amongst a field of 250cc riders and went on to pick up some solid results and points for the championship. Both riders went on to qualify in the top 10, with Joel setting the fifth fastest time and Bobby qualifying in ninth position.  In race one, Joel got off to a great start, pushing through the pack to fourth, while Bobby made some great progress on his YZ125 machine, going on to finish 15th. In race two, following a poor start, Joel was left having to fight through the field and after making some great progress back into the top 10.  But with less than three corners to go, a small crash while trying to pass another rider meant that Joel had to settle for 12th in the end. Fellow 125cc rider, Bobby Bruce finished in 13th following a great start, which saw him battling at the top end of the field. Despite the challenging conditions as well as racing against the more powerful bikes, both riders were determined to end the day on a high, finishing seventh and eighth in race three. 


In MX2, both Henry Williams and Ben Clark continued to make great progress in the pro class, adding two solid results to their campaign. In race one, Williams showed good speed at the beginning of the race, but a couple of small mistakes ultimately cost him vital points as he finished in 27th.  The second race was much of the same as Henry crossed the line in 32ndBen had another positive weekend, going on to finish 24thin race one and 22nd in race two, getting closer and closer to scoring his first pro points. It's still a learning curve for Ben, as he says that last weekend helped him pinpoint what needs to be done in order for him to pick up his first pro points. In MX1, Jake Shipton made his return to racing with some fantastic results. Shipton qualified in 11th and went on to grab a fantastic start in race one which saw him battled it out in the top five in the early stages of the moto. But the lack of bike time in race conditions made it for a tough race and in the end, Jake finished in 13th place amongst a field of strong competitors. Race two proved to be too much for his back injury, and as a result, meant that he could not finish the race.


MX1 rookie, Nathan Dixon, fought hard all weekend and was determined to make up for lost ground, following the results from the previous round at Canada Heights. Dixon qualified 17th but was keen to better his result in the first race. Nathan got a good start in the first moto and quickly found himself pushing for positions in the top 10, when an unfortunate collision with a rider resulted in a crash which left him stuck under his bike for quite some time. As a result of the crash, both Nathan and the bike were left feeling worse for wear, which forced him out of the race. In the second race, Nathan got another good start and went on to cross the line in 14th position, finishing the day off on a positive note.
