Riders gear up for round three

THE third round of the 2012 EMG/Eastern Centre Solo Enduro Championship – organised by Sudbury Motorcycle Club – takes place on Sunday, June 17, at Home Farm, Little Hadham, Hertfordshire, just over the border.

Although a short course, there are plenty of open fields, ditches, woodland and bogs which the club make great use of.

Entries for the event are still open and it is hoped the final tally will be more than 100 riders.

The Championship class after two rounds sees current and eight-times winner Chris Hockey leading with 37 points followed by Jason Moreland (33), Jamie Roper (32), Julian Harvey (23) and Ricky Roper (17).

In the experts class, the current leader is Phil Burton on 37 points, followed by Andy Mason (25), John Bishop (21), Ollie Stern (17) and jointly on 15 points James Holt and Nicholas Barrett.

The Clubman class sees Ian Tutton leading on 34 points followed by Gareth Young (24), Andrew Greenwell and Stephen Green (20), with Kevin Green and Paul Belton (16).

It is hoped the 11 sponsored Sudbury Club members will be competing wearing their inspirational Team Dave Roper Racing Shirts, which have their surnames on the back and the Sudbury club’s logo on the front and back.
