Moto 2 looking for the same again Adam was lying in tenth lap one and the track getting rougher by the lap he made a great move in lap 2 to get ninth on lap three. Coming out of the bomb hole he collided with another rider putting him in the chest nut fencing and out of the race but a great determined ride.

Charley in the big wheels was also out of the team the aim for him was to look for top 30 finish but bad starts and a few crashes made it hard work for him coming away with 35ht overall .
Underdogs MX1 rider Jamie Dobson was in action at the AMCA championships hoping to improve not only on his position but also his luck after the first round in which he was injured but this was not to be the case in Moto 1 Jamie had a good steady ride for 11th but in race two a rider high siding in front of him was to see Jamie catapulted down the track and was lucky to come away with bruising to his back and side.
The one thing about running a team is not every weekend will be grate but I can say if all you needed to win a race was hart determination and a never say die attitude we would be on the podium every week o thanks to all the riders for their effort.

MAXXIS Round 1 : Fat Cats
This week saw the team travel to round One of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship at Fatcat motoparc, Doncaster. We set up on sat and the track looked good however continuous rain over night meant that a wet race schedule was announced Sunday Morning. Races would be cut to two for the MX1 and MX2 classes, whilst the MXY2 Youths had one race.
The opening races were held in slight drizzle, however the snow fell ahead of the final two.
Qualification was not to bad for Underdog Mx2 rider Adam Darbyshire who had a good race with just one hundreth of a second covering himself, Ray Rowson, Jordan Divall and James Harrison with Adam giving us 30th.
The mxy2 was to see only Aiden ride with Sam being side-lined by illness. The desiction was taken to rest Sam for next week’s round rather than ride unfit.
Aiden qualified in 29th and having only one race for the day was determined to improve but worsening track conditions and weather did not help. A bad gate was to see him fight his way up the field to 25th only to have a fall and drop back down the field to finish 29th.
Race one in the Mx2 field was to see Adam get a bad start to fight is way up the field to 26th on lap 6. Adam hit the main table top and lost the bike in mid-air. He remounted to find the bike was bent so had to retire from race one.
Race two with conditions worsening and snow falling the aim was to finish and take as many points as possible into round two but half way through the race the bike was to stop with electrical problems.
Else where, A.M.C.A. Underdog Rider Jamie Dobson
Recovering from Knee Injury had his first outing back for the team. Missed practice and went out in race 1 coming from the back. Managed to pull through to 7th and the knee felt reasonable.
Race2 I decided to go for start gating 2nd but had a moment that required a leg dab and went down. Last upto 7th again.
Race 3 gated 2nd and chased leader hard. Caught knee in a rut and damaged it again by twisting. Rode though the pain to push leader to the flag for a 2nd. Overall pleased with progress having been off bike for 5 weeks!! Hope the swelling goes down for next week. Great effort

A great weekend for the team with Adam Darbyshire having his first outing for the team in the pro Mx 2 qualifying was good on the well prepped Preston docks track sitting in 5th fastest half way through the session finally finishing up 7th fastest
Race one was to see Adam crowded out on the first corner pushing him back down the field and with the track being narrow would make life difficult for Adam to cut through the field just but a mistake on lap three was to see Adam crash remount and finish a creditable 13th
Race two Adam went down in the first corner putting him at the back of the field on lap one pushing hard he made up four places and by lap 4 he had gained 4 moor to finish 12th giving him 10th overall and a great work out for the upcoming Maxxis at Fat cats this weekend
