HydroGarden Weston Beach Race 2017

The HydroGarden Weston Beach Race 2017, with over 70,000 people visiting the Weston-Super-Mare event over the course of the weekend. There was some outstanding racing amongst the 900 riders, who took to the beach to combat the gruelling course. It was a weekend that certainly sorted the men from the boys!   The race concluded with local resident Todd Kellett, earning a second consecutive win in the adult solo category. David Knight, who is a well-known enduro legend, took an impressive second place result with Martin Barr taking third. It was always going to be difficult to predict the outcome of the adrenaline fuelled adult solo race. Kellett, sped out of the gate to enjoy an incredible start aboard his St Blazey MX/SJ Hodder Husqvarna, which saw him earn the top podium finish in the RPG Racing 4×4 quad class. Close behind down the 1.5-mile straight, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jonny Walker was second with Ashley Greedy third.   By the halfway point, Kellett managed a smooth pit stop, while Barr took the opportunity to edge into second and Knight was then able to take up third. Greedy dropped back to sixth, while Irwin was forced to retire from the proceedings, due to suffering some technical issues. Kellett managed to maintain his consistency and speed throughout the enduring three-hour race, with the 20-year-old Somerset rider remaining untouchable approaching the final stages, allowing him to claim the well-earned victory. David Knight, who was the last rider to win Weston Beach Race back-to-back in 2010 and 2011. This year saw him take the runner-up spot and being the only rider to complete the race on the same number of laps as winning Kellet, after pushing his bike over the line. Buildbase Honda rider Martin Barr equalled his debut result from last year, finishing on the podium in third, after a spectacular battle between the amateurs and pros. Ross Parkinson was presented the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race Young Gun Award, as the highest placed 19-year-old with his 81st position. Of course, the weekend is full of the most exciting off-road riding you will see, but it doesn’t end there. It is an incredible event for all the family, which included the multiple Indoor and Outdoor World Trials Champion Dougie Lampkin taking to the WD-40 Trials Arena, to perform some death defying stunts.   Lampkin was joined by Toby Martin, who put on an awesome display of their trials riding abilities, working with some seriously large WD-40 cans to showcase their skills to the crowd.   It certainly was not an event to be missed!   Find Out More here: Find Out More about our Specialist Motorbike range here: 

Danny Hart secures 6th overall in the 2017 World Cup Series

Last weekend the UCI Downhill world cup circus arrived at Val di sole for the final round of the 2017 series. With the championship, still to be decided, all eyes were on Minaar and Gwin, 2 juggernauts of the sport who had fought hard all year to take the crown, but, with both experiencing uncharacteristic misfortune throughout the 2017 season, things had not gone to plan.   A statement that resonated for most riders in the top 5 in 2017, with a variety of technical or equipment malfunctions, even freak weather events that have thrown the 2017 series in to championship chaos at several points throughout the year.  A lot of the weird and wonderful ‘racing moments’ we have witnessed in 2017 have not been caused by rider error this year.     That misfortune has not been selective with WD-40 Athlete Danny Hart (who became world champion at this venue in 2016) also succumbing to unusual conditions early in the 2017 season. At Val di Sole Danny was determined to continue his recent run of form that has taken him all the way back up to 4th overall in the standings as racing begun in the valley of the sun. Danny used his race craft to qualify in a steady 8th place nicely in the top 10 and proof that he was on the pace. On race day Danny was up on the first time split, but soon after had an un usual crash, Danny got straight back up and continued down the course, but the damage was done and with times so tight at the top Danny could unfortunately only achieve 32nd on the day. That result meant that Danny finished the World Cup series in 6th overall – an impressive achievement considering he was unable to take any real championship points from the first 2 rounds.   Next up is the world championships for the last race of the 2017 season in Cairns Australia. #WD-40 bike
