DAVE ROPER MEMORIAL 24-09-2017

Published on Sep 24 2017
Part two of the Dave Roper Memorial Event was the Youth Hare & Hounds organised by the Sudbury Motor Cycle Club. This is the third one staged this year and was on the historic Tye Farm Great Cornard where World and British Champions have ridden and is always a test of rider’s skills on the tricky adverse cambers. The event was in doubt as the required minimum entries had not been received, three of the regular riders entered into the Adult Two Man Contest with Max Day riding with his Dad, they finished 21st while Joe Phillips and Archie Gunton teamed up together and finished 10th scoring Class points. The ten riders lined up and when Chairman Gavin Hockey raised the start flag they all ran to their machines to start the one hour session. Jake Roper was first away closely followed by Georgia Potter and Louis Dutton then there was a gap before Will Belton and Jemma Sargeant got started. At the end of lap one it was Roper with a good lead followed by Dutton, Potter, Belton, Evan Herbert, Morgan Plaskett, Evan Brown, Lola Jane Miller, and Maisey Hockney. Roper was soon completing his second lap having passed Sargeant who had fallen on her first lap. These youngs...

Little Hadam 19-06-17

Published on Jun 18 2017
It was a very hot and sunny day for round 4 of the G H Motorcycles/Husqvarna/ACU Eastern Solo Enduro Championship at Little Hadham Herts. The organisers Sudbury Motor Cycle Club had laid out a blistering course of five miles through ditches, open fields and woods. The bog in one of the woods caused a few problems although not as wet as usual but if you rode the wrong line you got stuck in a deep rut which meant a lot of energy was needed to pull the bike out of it. Graham MaysOn the first lap Jason Morland was experimenting on what line to ride and dropped his machine straight into the mud. However that did not deter the Halstead rider as Morland had two cracking rides on the two Special Tests beating second place man Matt Pope (Norwich) by 6.6 seconds. There was strong competition amongst the other Championship Class riders which finally saw Brendan Mayers (Halstead) 3rd, Tim Rose (Diss) 4th, Will Hughes (Braintree) 5th, Daniel Van Zyl from South Africa 6th, James Yearley (Braintree) 7th, Sam Mitchell (Woodbridge) 8th and Ed Pooley (Stowmarket) 9th. Provisionally in the overall standings Morland has increased his lead and with two rounds to go he needs 18 points to retain his Title. The Expert Class so far has seen a battle Myles Saunders (Sudbury) and Kevin Palmer (Norwich) but Palmer pulled out all the stops having the top rides in the Special Tests beating 2nd place rider Dan Willis (Stowmarket) by 10.156 seconds with Alex Walton (Sudbury) 3rd.

First away was Jake Roper leaving most of the field in his wake and poor Georgia Potter’s bike would not start eventually it sparked into life some three to four minutes behind the leader....
