Plenty of Action in Women’s MX

After 4 rounds, the BWMA 2019 series is gaining momentum on the track.

With the new format this year there are more chances of prizes for all the girls competing.

Round 5 of the 2019 series will take place on 14th July at Ollerton (a change of fixture) but we have witnessed ups and down both on and off the track.

Charlotte Hall in the 3rd round after a tense time on the start line was loaned a replacement bike. In the first lap came off and has fractured her shoulder. We wish her a speedy recovery. Her disappointment in not finishing the season was massive.

This season has seen some great racing throughout the field in all classes, The BWMA has encouraged one little 65cc rider, 9 year old Poppy Banning to register this year. Here she is with Chelsea, who is just one of the women riders Poppy aspires too.

Unfortunately the numbers are down for the 2019 British Women’s Motocross despite the success of the championship last year and of the history making efforts of our Great Britain team in Europe. This is due to a number of factors, injury being the biggest with great riders like Leonni Tighe, Ciara Robertson, Ellie Sleightholme, Elisha Elliott to name a few out for the season. However that is giving the other riders a chance to compete for a top spot on the podium.
