This Sunday May 10th the Phoenix Tools/Ifly Premier motocross Championship resumes with round 3 taking place at one of the fastest tracks in the South West and that is Garlands Moor. This venue always produces some really top class racing not just in the Experts, but in all classes.

In the Tony Maunders Expert Open Championship its Ryan Redwood on the G V Motorcycles Honda who heads the Championship with the Hill Power Racing Honda of Luke Hill there just 8 points behind in 2nd, but with Hill on home soil with plenty of local support he will be looking to take the lead in the Championship, but it could all change as lining up beside them will be the likes of Josh Taylor, Sam Gabriel, Jake Penny, Luke Sturgeon and James Kensington to name a few.

In the M D Racing over age classes its defending Champion Nick Life on the Gibbs Performance/St Blazey Yamaha who heads the Over 35 Championship by 21 points over the Readypower KTM of Rick Hanson who will be hoping to cut that deficit, whereas in the Over 40’s it’s Terry House on the Crescent Suzuki who heads the proceedings by 31 points from the Cheddar MX Store Honda of Chris Brown who moved up into 2nd at the last round from Richard Green. In the Over 50’s defending Champion Mark Gleadhill still heads the proceeding, but giving chase will be Graham Beale who will be out to repeat his performance from the last round where he took a hat trick of wins.
