East Anglia BMX regional Series Round 2
The second round of the East Anglia BMX 2010 Summer Series was at the picturesque track of the Codham Park BMX Club last Sunday. Almost 130 riders from across the region registered for the event although the weather did not live up to expectations being cold and windy which made the track seem very long but the racing remained competitive throughout the day for the nineteen riders from Royston.
Royston had three female riders taking the part with the youngest, Ella Tomsett, taking 2nd in the Girls 7-8 class and in the 11-12 category Faye Godfrey also took 2nd in her first visit to this venue and another 2nd place went to Helen Nicholl in the Ladies Cruiser 25+ class.
The male riders also came away with good results with Louis Foreman leading the points chase with a 5th in the 8 year class and the 9yr class final was packed with Rockets with Ted Dalleywater in 3rd just heading home team mate James King in 4th and Marmaduke Birt in 8th. The 10yr male class saw two more good results for the Rockets with Myles Fisher finishing in 2nd to earn a Rider of the Day award, having been chased all the way by Daniel Blanche who took 3rd. The 11 yr class saw Ethan Vernon take the win ahead of Aaron Dalleywater in 2nd whilst the 12 yr class saw Matthew Harris in 5th The 15yr class saw another of Royston new members, Jordan Godfrey taking 4th and in the 16 year category, Andrew Brooker finished in 2nd whilst the 17-24 class A final saw Richard Townsend take 5th and in the 30+ “Masters” class Adam Richards took 2nd in the A final with team mate Alex Shore-Nye taking 2nd in the B final. Royston’s two oldest riders both won their classes with Darren Foreman competing in the 40+ Vets class and Carl Birt in the Cruiser 45+ category.
