BEC – ALL FOR THE WIN IN KNIGHTON
Grabbing two victories at the first two rounds in the Scottish sands, Jamie McCanney currently heads the hotly contested Championship class. But with only three points separating the top four and another seven rounds left, it can be anyone’s game.

Reigning British Enduro Champion Tom Sagar, who won round three in Helmsley, will try to make the best out of his KTM 450 EXC in Knighton and get a second victory for 2015.
Beta’s Steve Holcombe, winner of the last round in Helmsley, will also be looking to step up to the mark as points leader in Knighton. And despite not yet winning a BEC round this year, Daniel McCanney is consistently getting faster too.
The Championship boys are certainly going to be the class to follow as the year progresses. Top four aside, David Knight will be returning to racing on the back of two strong EWC results in Belgium. Jack Edmondson is picking up some speed, Daryl Bolter is keeping everyone in check and Joe Wootton has been working extremely hard behind the scenes.
Three laps are proposed for Saturday and two for Sunday with back to back cross country tests on the final lap.
