It's off to Meijel in Holland for some sand-surfing this weekend as the AMCA Team Great Britain squad consisting of James Dodd, Andrew Smart and Ashley Thomas go in search of more IMBA MX1 European Championship glory.
After four rounds, the Championship table makes very pleasant reading for the GB lads all mounted aboard JSR Thunderroad Honda's. At present Dodd leads the charge to the title on 657 points and is 94 clear of his closest rival Stijn Verstrepen of Belgium. Andrew Smart currently sits in 3rd just 15 points behind the Belgian with Ashley Thomas just a further 41 in arrears and in 5th spot..
The axle deep Meijel circuit produces a notoriously demanding event which favours not only the home riders but also the sand racing experts from Belgian and Denmark. For the GB boy's it's going to be ultra-tough but hopefully they will bag some big points hauls to carry into the final round of the series at Kleinhau, Germany at the end of September!
