What a weekend it was for AMCA Team Great Britain competing in IMBA European Championship action. Producing podium placings and plenty of super performances!
In the home IMBA at Lower Drayton, Chelsea Gowland took a fantastic 3rd overall on a 5 year-old Honda machine and finished the day with a broken ankle!! Whilst Chelsea starred, there also plenty of other great results from the GB Ladies who certainly gave it their all with a proud, determined and outstanding showing. All inside the final top fifteen were Bethany Farmer (7th), Charlotte Hall (9th), Catherine King (11th), Leonni Tighe (13th) and Camilla King (15th). Completing Team GB, Eleanor Calby, Georgia Ithell, Vicky Marriott, Ciarra Robertson, Gabrielle Hamlet and Rhianne Barker also played their part and showed just why Ladies motocross is certainly on the march!
In the Sidecar class, Sam Osbaldiston/Nathan Cooper were the sole GB representives but what a showing they produced! Taking 5th overall, Sam also moved from 16th up to 6th in the series standings.
There was also plenty of good news from round 2 of the IMBA MX1 European Championship held in Southern France. James Dodd(2nd) and Luke Burton(3rd) were both on the podium.
