Sheffield, England Supercross

Sheffield, England Supercross, October 25th

Special thanks to KTM North America




Red Bull KTM riders Mike Brown and Tommy Searle along with MDK/KTM Factory Junior Team rider Max Anstie each won their respective class at the opening round of the British Supercross Championship Series over the weekend.




Defending SX-1 British Supercross Champion, Brown, decided to race both the SX-1 and SX-2 classes aboard his KTM 250 SX-F. Brown had a great run in the SX-2 class where he took the win followed by fellow Red Bull KTM Factory rider Tommy Searle. In the SX-1 main event Brown, had a slight disadvantage riding on the lower displacement bike but still fared well finishing 4th overall.




Brown was not the only one pulling double-duty as Searle also competed in two classes over the weekend. Searle earned 2nd in the SX-2 class as described above, and also took an amazing victory in the British Open class over Carl Nunn. Searle passed Nunn in the last few remaining laps to take the lead and the win. This was Searle’s last race in England before leaving for the United States where he will compete for the 2009 season as a member of the MDK/KTM Factory Motocross Lites Team.




Multi-time British 85cc Champion, Max Anstie, had a great ride at Sheffield in his first Youth Open British Supercross race aboard the KTM 250 SX-F. Anstie easily won his heat race to qualify into the main event where he took the lead by the second corner and never looked back. Anstie lapped up to second place before taking the win. “It felt really good to win here. I have not had much time on the bigger bikes, so to come here and win like this helps my build my confidence a lot,” remarked Anstie, who will remain in Europe for the coming weeks to prepare for the Bercy Supercross. Anstie will compete on his KTM 125 SX in that event in the 125cc Invitational race.
