The hardworking club and fellow enduro enthusiast landowner Mr Bill turtle has invested in substantial clearing of the area to provide a varied track through woods & fields with some testing sections to keep the riders alert for the 2.5 hour long event. In glorious sunshine it brought out over 100 riders across the 8 classes and spectators enjoyed an exciting days racing with strong tussles in all the classes with riders vying for points in the season long championship. Clubman winner & runner up Jake Roper & Joe Philips battled it out all morning and finished just one lap behind the Championship riders on 16 laps each, the same as the Expert riders. Just both out of the youth section and with the Sudbury Motorcycle Clubs backing under the 'Team Dave Roper youth progression programme' the adults will have to keep an eye out for them over the next few races.
