MX Vice Viewpoint: Farleigh Castle



Farleigh Castle has a special place in the hearts of most fans. So, when it was announced that the popular natural circuit would make a return to the Maxxis British Championship calendar this year, most jumped for joy. It was always going to be an interesting event, as there were many different things to watch – the stunning facility of Farleigh Castle was a great backdrop for the series finale.

I was looking forward to the eighth (and final) round of the 2013 Maxxis British Championship for two reasons:

a)  I was interested to see how the natural circuit would affect the results, as it would be intriguing to see which riders excelled on the grassy circuit – I felt like this was an exciting subplot to the days racing.

b) Of course, because the MX1 and MX2 titles were on the line as well! It is always good to see hard-work pay off, and the series that has spanned over many months conclude.

Honestly, underwhelmed would best describe how I felt on Sunday. Perhaps this is harsh? After all, the racing was superb, once again – the final MX2 race could be considered the race of the year! However, where was the excitement? Seriously, I have never been to a professional event that has lacked so much of an atmosphere. You could argue that this was because of the small crowd. But, there were people there. Admittedly, the numbers were sub-par, but at least there were a couple of hundred.

Actually, allow me to go off on a tangent a little bit. If you visit a motocross forum, or even a social network site, you are always going to see a large amount of people complaining about the modern circuits, stating that it has killed the sport and that we need to go back to places like Farleigh Castle. So, where were these people? I thought that he would be much busier than it was, because people would want to support the popular circuit. It was certainly odd to see the lack of a crowd, and that certainly contributed to the lack of an atmosphere. Anyway, I digress.

I felt like a lot more could have been done by the promoters to excite the crowd. In the hour break between practice and the opening MX2 moto, it was eerily quiet around the circuit. You could have heard a penny drop. Now, I didn’t expect the commentator to keep talking throughout that break. But there are many things that could have been done – instead, they elected to do nothing. I will offer a solution to that problem; they could have played some exciting and dramatic music, interviewed the title contenders ahead of the most important race of the year or reminded the crowd about possible points scenarios. Like I said, the excitement level was so ridiculously low trackside that I decided to try and build the hype on the MX Vice Twitter – something had to be done!

Maybe the reason for the lack of excitement was that it had been so long since the previous round at Hawkstone Park – it had been almost two months! Perhaps it would be better for the promoters to make the schedule more compact in the future? Anyway, I’ve spent way too long on the lack of excitement at the Maxxis British Championship finale.

I honestly believe that the track played a large role in the excellent on-track action! Apart from the wooded section, it [the circuit] was very fast. So, as a result, everyone was quite close in speed, as there was not much to separate the guys. In a way, this did both help, and hinder the racing, as it made it quite one-lined out there; it was tough for the guys to make passes, everyone seemed to mention that. However, Whatley proved that it was possible in that final moto! I think that the track was good as a one-off. But, in my opinion, it would not work to use tracks like Farleigh Castle all-year long – the sport has evolved too much.

When the Maxxis British Championship last visited Farleigh Castle, a lot of riders complained about the woods section resembling an enduro, rather than a motocross track. Admittedly, I think that it was the same this weekend. I was not a fan of some parts of the track, like the corner in the woods after you went halfway up the first hill. It was too tight, and one lined for a professional meeting, in my opinion. However, overall, I thought the woods were the most interesting feature of the track, as it really tested the riders’ technical ability. Interestingly, the track was a bit different to what we saw at the Veterans MXdN, as the riders went up the first set of steps. Some elected to attempt to double up the first two, which was just incredible. Both Graeme Irwin and Luke Norris actually struck me as the riders that did this best.

Shall we finally get into the results and the racing? I was really happy to see Kristian Whatley clinch the title, as it was quite clear that it meant a lot to him, and the MBO Sport Yamaha team. Whatley just had to post some solid results in order to obtain the title. However, he went above and beyond that, as he seemingly wanted to make a statement. Following his ride on Sunday, there is no doubt in my mind that he is the deserving MX1 Maxxis British Champion. I mean, his rides whilst on the way to the win in the opening two motos were impressive, but the way that he sliced through the field in the final moto was something else!

It is quite funny really, as he has managed to avoid bad luck for most of the year. Then, as soon as he has clinched the title, he gets struck down by a first turn fall! I honestly thought that he was just going to pull in – he was so far behind, and there was no need to go all out to win. But, after getting his front brake calliper cut off, he left it all on the line and pushed through the field to seventh. It was obvious that he wanted to go out with a bang, and take the overall win – he did just that.

Brad Anderson finished second overall on the day, and won a moto, which was great to see. But, in my opinion, he still didn’t look like the same guy. I mean, when Brad was battling for the title, he looked very aggressive. Now, he looks completely different. In that final moto, he was battling with Gert Krestinov for the whole race. I don’t think that Brad should be battling with a rider like Gert, but he struggled to drop him. So, you have to think that Brad won because of Whatley, Karro and Aubin crashing in turn one. In my opinion, his second in moto one was more impressive – he looked more like his usual self in that one. 2014 is going to be a make or break year for him, so it will really be interesting to see whether he is a title contender, or whether he slips into that second tier.

Will the real Jonathan Barragan please stand up? Seriously, I don’t know what has happened to the Spaniard. Remember when he was winning GPs? Yeah, that was just four years ago. In the past four years, he has lost so much speed and desire that he now isn’t a factor to win at British Championship level. Why has he dropped off so much? Honestly, no one knows. Once again, his performance at Farleigh Castle was lacklustre, as he finished seventh overall following some disappointing performances. It seems like Jonathan is off to enduro now, which is good, in a way, hopefully the new surroundings will help him find some kind of comfort. Although he finished second in the series, his results this year indicate that he was lucky to finish there.

Although the year as a whole has been very difficult for Elliott Banks Browne, he managed to clinch the MX2 Maxxis British Championship title at Farleigh Castle, which certainly made his season more positive. Prior to Farleigh Castle, EBB had not won an overall since Milton Park in May. So, there was a bit of a drought there in the middle. But, he rebounded at the finale by standing atop the podium. Interestingly, I noticed that Elliott seemed to tackle the races in a different way to the rest of the frontrunners, as he just kept chipping away during the moto, rather than sprinting in the early laps. Obviously, this strategy comes from racing the GPs. Anyway, congratulations to Elliott on a second MX2 title, there is no doubt that he earned it.

Bryan Mackenzie ended the season with a bang, seemingly. In fact, I would argue that he was the best rider on the day; he probably should have won the overall. However, he lost out on the victory by one measly point. But, the Pendrich Kawasaki rider still collected two moto wins to go along with his one from earlier in the season. Bryan had to withstand some immense pressure from a number of different riders in moto three, which was impressive to see, as he had a few different guys all over his back wheel for the duration of the twenty-minutes. It was certainly a positive day for him, and to top it off, he got around both Graeme Irwin and Nathan Watson in the series standings, to end the season fourth.

Steven Lenoir was perhaps the most vocal about his disdain for the Farleigh Castle circuit, as he seemed to be uncomfortable with the track all-day long. Despite this, the Frenchman put in some solid rides to finish third overall, following a second and two fourths. It was by no means an easy day for him, as he seemed to be in the midst of a battle every time that I saw him out there. The battle between Lenoir and Bradshaw for third in the championship was a close one, as Steven came close to losing it when he dropped back at the beginning of the final moto. But, in the end, he came through to clinch the position, which concluded a great season for him and the Evotech KTM team.

Aside from the champions (obviously), Adam Sterry was the standout performer for me. If you look at his results, it looks like he had a good day. But, if you were trackside, you will know that it was a great day. Really, we should have known that he would be up front, as he already proved in the practice sessions that he had the speed to contend. However, translating that into the races is a completely different story – Sterry managed to do that though. In moto one, he latched onto the back of a great four-rider battle for the win, before eventually finishing third (a career best).

Although he finished outside of the top five in the last two races, it was evident that he had the speed to get up front. But, he was a victim of bad starts, and a track that was tough to pass on, which hindered his results. Still, he ended the day in fifth overall – a great result. I am really quite interested to see how Sterry fares next year, as he is certainly on the path to success, judging by his recent form.

Well, I guess that is it then. 2013 is done, and dusted – what a year it has been! 2013 has been an exciting year, with a few surprises. But, 2014 is looking even better for the Maxxis British Championship, as Jake Nicholls, Shaun Simpson and Mel Pocock will all be returning to the domestic series, it seems. But before that, we have these long, cold winter months to get through. Roll on next year!

    As always it is interesting to hear/read honest opinions of all aspects mx in the uk and not the P-C, keeping the hierarchy happy content that certain other outlets bombard us with, but I’m in disagreement with Lewis on a number of things from yesterday.

    ‘Admittedly, the numbers were sub-par, but at least there were a couple of hundred’ – I think there was a fair amount more than just a couple of hundred at the event, looking over at the car parking area there seemed to be a whole lot more than just a couple hundred vehicle’s even , I think numbers looked low because there was so much area for spectators to view from. The edge of the woods, all along the bottom, an infield section, all up the hill on the side and a section along the top, this amount of viewing area is a refreshing rarity at races these days as normally everyone seems to be ‘penned’ into one or two sections.

    ‘I felt like a lot more could have been done by the promoters to excite the crowd. In the hour break between practice and the opening MX2 moto, it was eerily quiet around the circuit.’ – I didn’t notice this at all, I spent the interval in around the main paddock talking to riders etc, watching work being done on bikes etc, and its was quite busy in there, I do agree with Lewis that maybe a few interviews would be a useful addition but as for playing music….I dont think its needed but i can see the thinking behind the idea as long as its not like how they have it at the RBPN, the constant boom boom boom does my head in! In at Motocross not a concert!

    ‘a lot of riders complained about the woods section resembling an enduro, rather than a motocross track. Admittedly, I think that it was the same this weekend. I was not a fan of some parts of the track, like the corner in the woods ‘ – I’m no racer/rider by any means so i may be talking rubbish here but I think these riders don’t like the woods purely because they never have to deal with natural bits like that. Yes it is similar to an enduro section, but tracks always used to have these style sections as it was all part of ‘scrambing’ but for me things are too cushy these days with man made tracks, constant grading and all this ‘ripping the track up’ that goes on, tracks should be left natural and develop berms, bumps etc. as the day goes on, I recall an incident at langrish last year,when the Maxxis was there, a GP rider who is also a British Championship Race Winner came in after practice and said ‘ I dont know how to get round these corners cos they ain’t built any berms!’ this just goes to show my point that unless its man made and the same as every other track they ride, they don’t like it because they don’t know how to deal with it!

    ‘ I don’t think that Brad should be battling with a rider like Gert’ – There maybe a slight level of favouritism from me here as Brad is a friend of mine but the way I saw the last race was that Brad took the lead, Gert caught him and passed him, but within less than a lap Brad was back in the lead and pulled a few seconds advantage which he held for the remainder, I firmly believe that if Gert had made another challenge for the lead, Brad had a bit more in reserve and could have stepped up his pace a little. Yes he may have only won because those other guys fell at the start but getting round turn 1 clean is all part of racing and on this occasion he did that better than the others! I will agree with Lewis on race 2 that was vintage Ando, but the Brad I know now has matured a little on the bike and knows that he doesn’t have to ride out of his skin to get wins on some occasions as he proved throughout his 2011 title season.

    I’m a fan of Farleigh and for me it should be on the fixture list every year without fail, not every track should be like it but it would be better to see more places like it on the list rather than the Dog’s mess that is Milton Malsor! And dont rule Ando out for title number 3 in 2014…he’s as hungry as ever and with a solid winter of preparation and testing with the Buildbase Honda I firmly believe he will be a force to be reckoned with!

Michelin MX Nationals – Race Report, Rnd 2 – Monster Mountain

Full report from packed event in South Wales



Last weekend the new Monster Mountain facility staged its first event, round two of the Michelin MX Nationals powered by Milwaukee, and what an action-packed weekend it was! With almost 300 hundred riders keen to get on the new track and a tremendous crowd for the MX Nationals, both enjoyed the two days of fast and hot motocross action.

Words: Dick Law for Michelin MX Nationals | Featured Image: Michelin MX Nationals

If you haven’t seen the images and videos on social media, Monster Mountain is a USA- styled track set on top of a Welsh mountain. With months and months of hard, back-breaking work that involved moving hundreds of tons of earth with machines the size of a small house, the Monster Mountain track was born, and the scale of the project was mind-blowing. Once you have climbed up the mountain’s side to the peak, you enter a landscape that could be easily mistaken for Pala or even the moon.

The Leatt Pro MX1s were mainly about three riders, the Crendon Fastrack Honda pairing of Conrad Mewse and Josh Gilbert and Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha rider Harri Kullas. The winner would come from one of these riders, who have dominated the home racing scene all year.

Kullas got the holeshot at the start of the first combined MX1 and MX2 pro race but was quickly passed a quarter of the way around the opening lap by Mewse and then his teammate Gilbert, who had gated third, slipped by Kullas before the end of the lap. While this happened, John Adamson (ASA United GasGas) got cross threaded in one of the deep ruts and dropped from fourth to tenth.

Adamson’s teammate Ivo Monticelli, who was making a comeback from an injury he suffered at round one of the Revo series, took full advantage of his teammate Adamson’s problems and took over his fourth place as Jason Meara (JM 10 Moto-cycle Racing Honda), Tom Grimshaw (Chambers Racing), Charlie Putnam (SC Sporthomes Husqvarna), Jamie Carpenter (Cab Screens Crescent Yamaha), and Dan Thornhill (Chambers Racing) all moved up a place at Adamson’s expense.

The leading four riders of Mewse, Gilbert, Kullas, and Monticelli stayed in the same running order to the end of the race as Meara and Grimshaw fought over fifth place. The two riders changed position many times till, on lap eight, Meara suffered a mechanical failure, leaving Grimshaw to make fifth all his own.

Adamson was on a charge after his crash and fought back to sixth at the end of the race, while Putnam came off his machine, relegating himself back to thirtieth place.

The immense new track, with its long start straights and big jumps, and even an adverse camber turn, was always going to disadvantage the smaller Apico MX2 machines over the power of the Leatt MX1 machines, with Glen McCormick (Chambers Racing) being the first of the MX2s around turn one, followed by Jamie Wainwright (WPH/SBE/Redline KTM) and Carlton Husband (Phoenix EvenStrokes Kawasaki) as race favourite Charlie Cole (Blades Bikes Kawasaki) suffering a mechanical problem that saw him at the back of the pack with a lot of work to do.

Wainwright had passed McCormick to lead the MX2s by the end of the first lap as Husband slipped back three places. But, as the race continued, Husband upped his pace and repassed six other riders on his way to tenth in the race, but first MX2 home.

McCormick put on a last-lap charge and snatched a place from the hands of Wainwright as the pair finished eleventh and thirteenth on the track but second and third in the MX2s, as for the unlucky Cole. He regrouped and fought his way back from thirtieth to finish fifteenth in the race but fourth MX2 and the last person on the lead lap.

Kullas once again got the holeshot at the start of race two, and once again, Gilbert found a way past him by the end of the lap. Behind them, it was Grimshaw, Meara, Monticelli, Mewse and Carpenter.

Grimshaw took his time in the opening laps and slipped back to sixth. Mewse slid past Monticelli on the second lap to take over third place, with Meara relegated to fifth.

While Grimshaw and Carpenter fought over sixth place, the running order of Gilbert from Kullas, Mewse, Monticelli, and Meara stayed the same till the very last lap when Mewse used the backmarkers to snatch second place from Kullas, and with it second overall for the meeting. (MX Vice was witness to the incident that cost Kullas second place, where two MX2 riders fell in a rut that Harri had already committed to, leaving the Yamaha man to haul his bike out of the massively deep inside rut as Conrad tiptoed around the outside of them, probably laughing his head off!).

On the Apico MX2 side of race two, Cole had gated tenth but had Wainwright in his wheel tracks and McCormick two places further back as they battled for the MX2 lead amongst the bigger MX1 machines.

Wainwright & Cole battle for MX2 supremacy in race two. Cole won the event, but Wainwright leads the series!

After changing the lead with Wainwright several times, Cole established himself eighth on the track but first of the MX2s. Wainwright finished in tenth place for the second MX2, with McCormick third. Unfortunately, Husband didn’t get the start he wanted and didn’t seem to get going as he finished sixth MX2, behind Joe Brooks and Charlie Heyman (Tru7 Honda).           

With three race wins and a second place, Ben Edwards won the RFX expert MX1s from race one winner and wildcard rider Josh Waterman. Jayden Ashwell (AJP Geartec Husqvarna) was third, with Jay McCrum missing a podium position.

Ashley Greedy (Darjen Contractors Gas Gas) won his first three races in the RFX MX2s, but while in the lead of his fourth and final race of the weekend, he was passed by Jimmy Margetson (AJP Geartec Husqvarna) on his way to second overall, with Mathew Bayliss (Darjen Contractors Gas Gas).

Ash Greedy had a great weekend on home territory.

Wildcard rider Scott Elderfield won three out of his four races on his way to the Motoverde amateur MX1 overall, with race four winner Sean Wainwright (Fasteddy Racing Honda) second. Josh Greedy (Darjen Contractors Kawasaki) tied in third with Luke Mellows (Forty-Four Honda).

Wildcard riders took three out of the top four places in the Motoverde amateur MX2 class as Ben Clarke, with two wins and two third places, took the overall from race two winner Raife Broadley (723 Race Bikes Gas Gas) while the winner of the last race Wal Beaney was third, just five points behind the winner.

Tallon Aspden (LA Groundwork KTM), with three wins and a second place, won the Worx clubman MX1s from Darren Manning-Coe, who was second in all four of his races as Daniel Chapman, the winner of the last race of the weekend was third as Drew Lane just missed out on the podium by two points.

Sam Ongley (Fantic) won all four Spiral GFX clubman MX2 races from Matt Tolly and Charlie West.

In the youth Fly Futures MXY2s, Billy Askew (GTCi Revo Kawasaki) won all four races and remains unbeaten this year. Behind him, Domonic Newbury (426 Motorsport KTM) and Mackenzie Marshall (DK Offroad KTM) were separated by just three points as they finished the weekend in second and third overall.

Billy Askew (441) already has his nose in front of Domonic Newbury (404), Mackenzie Marshall (555) and Jak Taylor (22, WM Tatchell Husqvarna).

Reece Jones (SJP Moto Husqvarna) was third in his first race of the weekend, but from then on won the other three for first overall in the Fly MXY125s. Jake Walker (Mr T Racing KTM), who didn’t finish out of the top four all weekend, was second, with a race-three low score pushing Tyla Hooley (Fantic) down to third.

Josh Vail (SJP Moto Husqvarna), with two race wins, a second and a third place, took the overall win in the Syntol Big Wheel 85s with Jamie Keith (MBR X&P KTM), who didn’t finish out of the top three all weekend, second and Charlie Richmond third.

Josh Vail took the overall win in the Syntol Supermini Big Wheel class

With a couple of wins and two-second places, Joel Winstanley-Dawson (Techsource Racing KTM) won the Syntol small wheel 85s from race one winner Lucas Lee (Husqvarna) and Ollie Truman.
