Le Brun hits a perfect six to rule the Elites


SOREL Point played host to a two-day motocross event last weekend.

Over 70 riders from Jersey and Guernsey, some of whom were making their race meeting debut, battled it out on the revamped track.

The competitors were lucky to catch the sunshine for most of the bank holiday weekend as they revved and jumped for the win, but heavy showers on Sunday morning subjected riders to trickier, muddy conditions that paved the way for fierce competition.

The Elite A class had a home run of six wins over the weekend from Matt Le Brun (64), while second, third and fourth positions were diced up between Charlie Morris (12), Connor Gautron (194), Archie Langlois (10), Finlay Clark (385), and Guernsey rider George Symons (17). The overall standings were: Le Brun, Symons and Gautron.

The Intermediate B group saw exceptional racing, with almost a full gate line-up and some very close competition between riders.

First overall in the B class went to Francis Touzel (89), second to Ashton Hardman (184) and third to Carlos Vieira (119).

Also racing alongside the Intermediate B group were the Vets Class, which was won by Lee Le Feuvre (91), with GH Smit (101) and Mark Birrell (32) in second and third.

The Novice C class had newcomer Jayden Newbon (272) racing, who performed well, but first overall went to Stephen Dowden (194). Enio Brazao (313) took second and third went to Aston Le Moine.

The BW 85 class had some cracking racing between a mixture of Guernsey and Jersey riders, with local Max Paton (210) taking second and Isaac Le Flem (33) third, but it was Guernsey rider Zach Wallbridge (404) who stormed to take the overall win.

The SW 85 class saw Tait Smit (222), Cameron Brazao (313) and Jerome Sullivan (8) finish in that order.

The Upcoming 65s class saw Joel Leonard (26) take first overall, second was Leon Dowden (165) and third Sarnian Rudi Wickens (23).

The Auto class saw a host of younger riders behind the gate. Jake Leonard (20) took the win, followed by Archie Gomes (71) and Guernsey’s Emilia Wallbridge (121) in second and third.

Last, but not least, was the E4 class where Robbie Holland (17) took top spot, with Lewis Falle (65) runner-up.

The event saw a great number of female riders take to the track, namely Amanda Wright (96), Nor Holden (44), Talluah Brewer-Morris (11), Zofia Szywala (18), Taylor Clark (383), Jenny Mahe (151), Emilia Wallbridge (121), and Lenny-Mai Pallot (22).

The next race day is slated for Sunday 19 May.
