Motocross contest events begin in Sussex
The Sussex motocross championship has begun.
The championship is broken into 12 meetings, where children aged six and above race three times a day.
Whoever has the most points at the end is put onto the championship board – which Brighton-based Boston Gilbert, is currently leading by one point.
The championship is a great platform for riders to get noticed and signed to big professional organisations.
Boston’s father Sol said: “Boston has always been a motorbike fanatic.
“Boston started riding a two wheel motorbike at three and would practise at every opportunity which was most weekends.”This year Boston has been riding the 2013 KTM 50cc and his success in the championship thus far has led to the Mid Sussex Motocross club selecting him to represent the club at Fox-hills the ACU British Youth Motocross Championship which is due to be shown on Sky TV.
If nine-year-old Boston wins this championship he will move up to the next bike class and be awarded a new 2014 ktm by his sponsors SGUT - Complete Moling & Dan Ives (65cc) which normally starts at aged nine.
Mr Gilbert continued: “I love what this sport brings. You get to meet some great people from all walks of life and the club is very child friendly.
I would advise anyone who is interested in motocross to check out Mid Sussex MCC.”
Mid Sussex Moto Cross Club is a family club that has been running for over 30 years. The riders range from Auto riders starting from the age of 6 years old to adults.
The main aim of the club is to provide competitive and fun racing for all riders.
