A busy weekend is planned for the Tyco Suzuki British Motocross team who will take in tomorrow’s penultimate round of the Red Bull Pro Nationals at Hawkstone Park, before packing up and heading to Langrish for round seven of the British Motocross Championship.
Red Bull Pro Nationals Championship leader Stephen Sword is back to full fitness and looking forward to the double-header weekend, as is his Tyco Suzuki MX1 team-mate Martin Barr. Barr currently holds third place in the Pro Nationals, just eleven points behind Swordy.
In MX2 Tyco Suzuki’s young Dubliner Stuart Edmonds will look to emulate his overall success from the previous Pro Nationals round at Canada Heights and improve on his current championship position of fifth.
“This weekend is going to be great. After resting, my back is now one hundred percent and I’m feeling much happier going into Hawkstone. I like the track and would very much like my red plate back at the end of the day. Langrish is also a good track for me and I am keen to do well there on Monday. I would really like to come away from there with a win.”
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend with two days’ racing. Hawkstone is one of my favourite tracks, so I’ll be aiming for a good result there and hopefully carry that into Langrish. It’s going to be a lot of travelling but I’m really up for it.”
“Two days’ racing on the spin should be good fun and I’m looking forward to getting the RMZ-250 out at two very good tracks. Hawkstone has been good to me this year and my opinion of it has changed, as it didn’t used to be one of my favourite tracks. It’s been a couple of years since I rode Langrish but I like the fast flowing nature of the circuit and the jumps so it should suit me.”
Adam Lyons – Team Manager:
“It’s going to be a busy weekend but one we are looking forward to. Swordy is back in good shape and well up for the challenge of defending his lead in the Red Bull series, and Martin will be looking to close the gap. It will be great racing. Stuart has been growing into the MX2 series and his ride with us all year, and he is impressing me with his revised effort of late. Langrish is another challenge on Monday that we are well prepared for and with a bit of good fortune we can grab some additional podiums for Tyco Suzuki and the RMZ machinery.”
