UK Honda Xtreme Academy riders are heading to the final round of the championship this weekend at Milton Malsor where Brad Todd, Jack Gardner and Robert Davidson will battle it out for the 2011 Honda Xtreme Academy title.
The final round showdown for the ACU British big wheel series will also see Honda Xtreme Academy riders battle for the overall BYMX title, with Brad Todd currently in the championship lead by the slightest of margins, along with Jack Gardner in third, just six points from the top spot.
Last round’s overall winner Matthew Callaghan, who took his first moto win then followed it up with two more out of the five races for the top spot across the weekend, is currently in fourth place and Robert Davidson in fifth. With four Honda CRF150R machines in the top five it’s certainly going to be an interesting run to the finish line for the seventh and final round of the British series.
In the Xtreme Academ y championship Todd is six points ahead of Gardner, with Davidson 11 points from the lead. With a top prize of £1,000 for the championship winner, along with prizes from Xtreme Academy partners Airoh helmets, One Industries, Renthal, Polisport, Vans, No-Toil, Racebikebitz being awarded to fifth place, it’s going to be an exciting finale for our young fourstroke Honda racers.
“It’s been a really good year for the Honda Xtreme Academy riders in the UK, and the final is going to be an exciting one, with the top three being so close in the points. Brad Todd has ridden well all year, and it’s been nice to see results like Matthew Callaghan taking his first ever win, along with some strong performances from some of our other riders. We’ve recently had a Honda Xtreme Academy training day in the UK with some of our pro-racers, and I hope this has helped as our UK CRF150R riders prepare for the final,” said Honda Motor Europe Off-Road manager, Roger Harvey.
“Anything can happen in motocross, as we’ve seen many times before, and following Adam Sterry’s overall BYMX big wheel championship win last year, it would be great if we took the title again, but already the riders have had a great season and should be very proud of their results. As with every country, we are also looking forward to rewarding the top five Honda riders in that big wheel class for all of their hard work with the great prizes we have from our sponsors,” concluded Harvey.
