60-SECOND UPDATE – BSEC ROUND 7
After a tough grind in the woods, Beta’s Danny McCanney took the win at round seven of the Enduro21.com ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship, powered by Husqvarna Motorcycles.
A short, sharp woodland based course ensured racing was close and competitive at Westwood, nr Sheffield.
A winner at Westwood in 2013, Jamie McCanney (Husqvarna) was determined to win again and led early on. After four laps just one tenth of a second separated the McCanney brothers but as the day progressed the Michelin Comp VI Elite win eventually went in Danny’s favour.
Just adrift of the leading duo KTM’s Tom Sagar was always ready to pick up the pieces. But with no major mistakes coming from the Manxmen, Sagar had to settle for third. Placing eights second shy of Sagar, Steve Holcombe (KTM) in fourth kept the pressure on Sagar to the final test of the day.
Rob Johnson (Husqvarna) got back to his winning ways having missed out last time in Chavenage Farm and topped the Husqvarna Under 23 class. Delivering his best ride of the season TM’s Josh Gotts finished as runner-up. The battle for the runner-up went right down to the wire as James Dent (KTM) pipped Frazer Norrie (KTM) by half a second for third.
Leading from the off, Husqvarna’s Joe Wootton has become the rider to beat in the Motul Under 19 class and claimed another victory over KTM’s Brad Freeman and Lee Sealey (Husqvarna).
Jordan Ridgway (Husqvarna) picked up the Enduro21.com 125 Youth win over Jack Staines (KTM) and Robbie Wallace (Yamaha).
Charlie Evans (KTM) edged out Carl Brogden (TM) by eight seconds to win the Amped Expert class.
Andrew Reeves (Beta) led home the Acerbis Expert Vet while Mark Raynor (KTM) won the USWE Clubman Vets.
