MOTOCROSS: Fearless Kieran leads TRM charge

Have your say

YOUNG gun Kieran Rudd stormed to first place overall as Team TRM impressed at Chatteris over the weekend.

The seven-year-old starlet was joined by Holbeach-based brothers Ryan Rudd and Ashley Rudd at the Peterborough Motocross Club event – and they both placed well too.

Competing in the Autos category, Kieran made a cracking start in his opener, before a minor crash forced him to settle for second place.

There was no stopping him in races two and three though, as he roared to a pair of wins to clinch top spot overall.

In the Big Wheel group, Ashley also made a super start. He streaked ahead to take a cracking win in his first race, before surviving a frightening ‘tank-slapper’ incident en route to second spot in the next battle.

Another runner-up finish in the finale then secured an impressive second overall.

Up another class into the 250 section, Ryan was in an equally impressive mood.

The teen ace got the hole shot in all three of his outings, but was pushed back to third place finishes in the first two.

He finished in style though, leading from the off to take a super victory in his final outing to wrap up a fine third overall.

Team TRM have the rarity of a free schedule this weekend, but are in Supermoto action at Rednal on Saturday week.
