Holbeach lad Ryan Rudd took a ‘break’ from the racing scene to complete a daunting insane terrain event over the weekend.

The Team TRM race ace finished an obstacle-ridden 10km track in 47.31 minutes, which made him 11th overall out of around 140 competitors – not bad for his first attempt at the event.

Indeed, only 99 athletes managed to complete the course.

The ‘Go Insane’ track at Doddington saw athletes up against a host of tricky sections, which included cargo nets, woodland terrain, space hoppers, sizeable hay bales and murky ponds.

Rudd took on the course in a bid to raise money for the Air Ambulance, who play a vital role in looking after motocross and supermoto riders across the nation.

He hopes to be able to announce just how much he raised in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, Rudd and his brothers Kieran and Ashley are preparing for their final motocross races of the season later this month.

The trio will be back on the track on October 27, with fellow family member Lee Rudd hoping to return from injury the week before.
