Winter series gets off to a flyer


After the most successful summer series, in the last decade, MK BMX Racing club entered the EA regions winter series with the determination not seen in a long time.

The team took full advantage of racing on their home track, and named 44 riders to compete.



Kicking off the Series Barney Devereux racing in the 23 rider strong 7 and under showed his technique training is starting to pay off.

Barney took three wins and a second in his qualifiers and was only outdone by Braintree Bullets Milan Machacek in the final.

After getting a blistering start Milan rode a perfect race line throughout to take the win with Barney close on his back wheel. MK new boy Callum Hughes came home fourth in his first ever race, and looks to be a promising rider for the future.

In the Male 8-9yr group MK’s James Paynes-Fraser pushed Peterborough’s Joseph Carey and Braintree’s Cameron Parish all the way to take third place overall on the day.

Due to the doubling up of the age groups the 12-13 Males, MK had six riders going head-to-head in the 12 rider group

MK racers Harvey Davies, Toby Lachlan and Joe Kitchen had their own private race going on between them.

With the home advantage and blistering pace they were setting, it was not surprising to see them take all three podium places.

Ethan Cremin continued to impress in the Male 14-16 group. Some smooth riding saw the MK racer take victory win ahead of Ipswich’s Alex Pike and Myles Fisher.

In the Girls 9-10 group, MK’s pocket rocket Zara Lachlan steadily improved each race to finish third overall.

Determined not to let her recent crash during training put her off attempting jumping, she raced hard and celebrated a third place finish.
