MOTORSPORT: Rudd trio net solid finishes

BROTHERS Ryan, Ashley and Kieran Rudd are on track for another strong motocross season after a solid showing at Chatteris on Sunday.

In only their second PJMC meet of the year, the trio all placed sixth or better in their respective categories.

Having stepped up to the 250cc (schoolboy) group, Ryan looks to be right at home. He finished sixth in his first two outings, before a fifth in the finale secured sixth spot overall.

Ashley, now in the big wheel section, improved consistently throughout the day. He was fifth home in his opener, before taking a fourth and then an impressive third.

That was good enough for fourth overall.

Kieran – the youngest of the trio – started superbly with a fine fourth, before a fall in the second saw him drop back to seventh.

He then finished with a decent fifth place to clinch sixth overall.

The previous weekend, Lee Rudd managed a solid eight place in pre-season event at Three Sisters.
