Go Ride Summer Series Round 7 07.07.15

Ipswich BMX Club recently staged the seventh round of its British Cycling Go-Ride Racing, Summer Series.
The warm, bright weather was only slightly spoilt by the enormous tail wind down the first straight.
Racing consisted of three classes of four motos (heats).  Riders were ranked based on their finishing positions in each of the four motos.
There was some great racing in Formula 3 as Elle Brooks, Samuel Hambling & James Bowater raced to the line in every moto. Elle had the edge in all but one moto & took the class win.
Formula 2 was hotly contested & provided some of the best racing of the series so far. Abi Pike made it four wins from four finishing ahead of Roxy Hinton & Seb Hambling.
The final class of the evening was Formula 1. Shaun Andrews finished first despite unclipping in the fourth moto. Andrew Ashford boosted his series points finishing in second, with Alfie Cole third.
A big thank you to all those who helped during the evening. The 8th & final Round of the series is at Landseer Park, Ipswich on Tuesday July 21st Registration closes at 6.45pm.
