Rock Oil XC Championship
Rd.6 at H2OOswestry
H2O near Oswestry once again earned its name as thick mist followed by
heavy downpours shrouded the venue for most of the morning, as riders took
to the line for the sixth round of the Rock Oil XC Championship.
High up in the hills, the venue has a huge amount of varying terrain
which includes a huge MX track, a nasty rooted and rocky woodland and plenty
of ravines with steep entrances and even steeper exits. Details
Jonny Walker to ride at Cowm
Jonny said “ I’m really looking forward to racing the 3rd round of the
Fast Eddy X-Treme championship next week , i couldn’t make the previous
rounds due to other races abroad so its great to get a chance to compete
back in the UK , Cowm Quarry is one of my favourite UK Hard Enduro tracks
and its great viewing for the fans , i’m quite sure the racing will be
close and exciting . My seasons been really good so far and i have a few big
international events coming up in Romania, Italy and Poland , so the Eddy X-Treme
comes at a good time to help me prepare and get some extra quality training
in. Looking forward to seeing a lot of British fans there and hopefully

ENDURO CHAMPIONSHIP STANDINGS
Welsh 2 Day
Holcombe wins the Welsh
Beta mounted Steve Holcombe won the 2015 ET James Welsh 2 day Enduro on the 25/26th June
at Llandrindod Wells. Joe Wootton won the second day to secured the runner up
and Jamie Lewis was third. Tree felling in the Tywi forest resulted in the loss
of the Water Splashes near Strata Florida but Clerk of the Course Huw
Watkins and his team rallied to re-open an exciting 130 mile loop around
Knighton plus a week of good weather ensured that the 2015 Welsh was one
of the most enjoyable events of recent years for riders and supporters. By
Wednesday morning the temporary W2D village had sprung up around the
lakeside at Llandod with teams arriving from as far afield as Australia,
America, Iceland and the Falkland Islands. At 8.00am on Thursday morning the
first 2 of the 37 strong sidecar class were flagged away by the mayor. The
opening test was at Church farm - 3 miles outside the town near Crossgates.
The grass under the trees was still heavy with dew and many of the Sportsmen
found that the fastest line was horizontal. In a middle of the field the
Classic class arrived with it's unmistakable fanfare of blowing exhausts.
Ashley Wood set the fastest time on a 240 Husky ahead of Robert Jones on a
450 Maico. The Championship class rode all 3 tests twice. Steve Holcombe
kept his grip and established a 16 second lead over Joe Wootton. Less than 3
seconds separated Jamie Lewis in 3rd from 5 times Welsh winner Daryl Bolter.
Carl Jones set the 6th fastest time on his first test but a collision with
Frazer Norrie wrecked his front wheel and ended his day. Test 2 was at the
Saints Well MX track. As well as the freshly graded track the riders were
also treated to woodland section and a "spiral". Steve Holcombe
extended his lead by 11 seconds. The 3rd test was at Abbeycwmhir. Notorious
in the wet, the grassy bank was fast and flowing in this year's dry
conditions. Steve Holcombe once again set the fastest times to take the
first day by 33 seconds from Joe Wootton. Jamie Lewis was 3rd. In a close
battle - with both sides setting fastest times - the combination of Jonathan
Williams and Neil James won the Championship Sidecar class by 2 seconds from
David Williams and Simon Brown. Rob Jones won the Classic class. Overnight light showers passed over Llandod
but by the time opening marshals set off the ground was dry and the sky was
clearing. The competitors were flagged away from 7.00am. As usual the
course was reversed and the first test of the day was at Abbeycwmhir.
Steve Holcombe set the fastest times but at Saints Well he lost 8 seconds on
his first run and Joe Wootton overhauled him. Steve pulled back some time at
the Church but as Joe circled the lake at Llandod he was the Day 2 winner.
Overall Steve Holcombe took the Premier. Joe Wootton was runner up and Jamie
Lewis was 3rd. Daryl Bolter was 4th, Lee Sealey 5th, Edward Jones
6th, Ade Smith 7th, Euan Mcconnell 8th, Charles Evans 9th, David Herring
10th, Dylan Jones 11th, Frazer Norrie 12th and Chris Hockey 13th Photos Results

The Italian Job As the late Friday evening sun lit the Bergamasche Valley, an enthusiastic
Italian crowd gathered outside Rovetta for the Supertest prologue of the 5th round of the 2015 Enduro World

- THE ULTIMATE JUNGLE TRACK
Track N Trail Enduro Freeride Sunday 12th July 2015
Tenko is in pristine condition! Straight after round 3 in May the team
re-graded the whole track with diggers and graders widening and
levelling it. The outcome is no ruts or bumps and a much wider track
with lots of overtaking lines for your enjoyment!
This track is known by many of you as the “Ultimate Jungle Track”.
You will ride though flowing woodland with jumps and sandy terrain
that is similar to the Japanese Jungle. Gravelly and sandy terrain
makes the track quite technical, so keep your wits about you. We’ve
tagged this track “The Ultimate Jungle Track” because it was used
by the BBC to film the TV series Tenko back in the 80’s as it looks
so similar to the Japanese jungle!
There’s a YouTube clip on our website homepage which you can check
out. It’s the second video on the rotator screen. Or via this link:
