GUTSY Mark Rudd returned from injury with a flawless performance at Great Hockham.

The Holbeach racer won all six of his races at the motocross meet to secure overall wins in the adult category.

Rudd picked up a hat-trick for Team TRM on Sunday, before repeating the trick 24 hours later to complete a cracking weekend.

Meanwhile, Ryan Rudd was seventh overall on the Sunday and fifth on Monday.

The teenager is riding really well in the big wheel category and this was another impressive showing.

Younger brother Ashley Rudd had a frustrating time in the small wheel section, as punctures hampered his progress.

He took sixth overall after his first three outings, although a rear puncture cost him a few places in the finale.

It got worse the following day, with a stronger showing wrecked by more rear tyre problems and a slow puncture in the front. Despite his struggles, Ashley secured eighth overall.

There was no such trouble for ever-improving prodigy Kieran Rudd in the autos, though.

He grabbed tenth on Sunday before recording a career-best sixth the next day. However, after a crash-free weekend, the six-year-old came off his bike after the final chequered flag of the meet.

Team TRM are in supermoto action at Three Sisters (Wigan) this weekend.
