Team mate Elliot Lee, also nine, stood on the podium in the U10s race and sits third overall in the standings.

Zara Lachlan is was also in great form in Royston, taking second place in the U14s race.

Reece Mahoney (11) and Dylan Willis (9) were both racing in the Male 12 category and had some great in-team battles in Moto 1 and 3 when they raced their motos together, with Reece beating Dylan in Moto 1 and then Dylan pipped Reece to the post in Moto 3.

It was a slick, well-run event today but the only real drama for MK was when Geoffrey Dingsdale (age 9) racing in the Male 12 category achieved an A final position on the final race sheets, but unbeknown to him his semi-final position had been successfully challenged by another rider causing confusion to him in the start gate and he was relegated to the B final, which was devastating for him to find out like that, and it impacted on his final race.
