We had the 2nd round of the British Masters at Foxhills near Swindon this weekend. The classes were more stacked than usual with all the top teams using it as practise for the British championship later in the year. The track was in prime condition. I decided to race the mx1 class also to get more track time. I did some suspension testing with the team in week, and we came up with a good setting and was I feeling a lot better on the bike.

Qualifying was steady and I ended up 4th quickest in both classes.

First up was the first mx1 race, and I pulled a massive holeshot on the big Honda 450. I lead for about 4 laps, and Whatley and Anderson got by, I kept a good pace going and managed to finish the race in 2nd behind Whately. The first mx2 race, and I got and average start in 6th and worked my way forward, 3 laps in I was 3rd and working on catching the leaders. I got by McKenzie with about 5 laps to, but couldn’t bridge the gap up to Irwin and ended the race 2nd.

The 2nd 450 race and I got another awesome start. The mx1 regulars Anderson and Whately got around on the first lap, but I rode a strong race and managed to come home 3rd, and clinch 2nd overall. The 2nd 250 race was amazing, I managed to grab another holeshot, and we had a great 4 way battle for the lead with Mackenzie, Irwin and Watson. 20 min in, I managed to get some breathing room, go on and take the race win, and the overall.

Results MX1
1 Whatley
2 Bradshaw
3 Irwin

Results MX2
1 Bradshaw
2 MaKenzie
3 Toombs

It was a good day to come away 2nd overall in mx1 and take the win and the championship lead in mx2.i was feeling at home on both bikes, and look forward to the next race which is the British Championship at Milton Malsor in a fort nights time.
