Last Saturday the final round of the 2014 Phoenix Tools Premier motocross series took place in Cornwall at Landrake Moto Parc and was expected to be a cracker as there were double points on offer which could put the cat amongst the pigeons in all 5 Championships which had yet to be decided. Unfortunatley the weather was against the meeting with heavy rain falling early morning and the decision was made to delay the start. However after most of the practice and qualifying the track was starting to dry and was set to produce some good racing, but that was soon not the case as the heavens were to open up again which made things very tricky and hard going.
This Saturday October 11th the battle is to commence at Landrake Moto Parc, which will host the final round of the 2014 Phoenix Tools Premier motocross Championships and with double points on offer this could make a big difference in all 5 Championships which have yet to be decided.
In the Expert Open Championship there is just 31 points between defending Champion Luke Hawkins on the Phoenix Tools Rocket Honda and team mate Alex Snow who have been battling it out all season and things are expected to carry on at the final round. The Tony Maunders Racing Suzuki of Jamie Skuse lies in 3rd and looks fairly safe, but in 4th it's the TwoNineTwo/Factory Touch Honda of James Dodd who will have to be at his best as breathing right down his neck is the St Blazey Husqvarna of John May who is just 7 points adrift in 5th. Other Experts who will be looking to do well include the likes of D S C Kawasaki pairing of Tommy Alba and Sunny Thompson, Dan Thornhill on the Fowlers Honda, Kelvin Townsend and Ben Butler on the Phoenix Tools Rocket Honda's, Luke Dean on the Bikestation/Meredith Suzuki, Todd Kellett on the Talon/Apico/S J Hodder Honda plus many others.
