Brown Does the Double at Duns!

SCOTTISH NATIONALS ROUND 2 - DUNS MOTOCROSS

The weather was once again on our side as we headed to the awesomely prepared track at Duns in the Scottish Borders for Round 2 of SMXF Scottish National Championship on Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd April hosted by Caithness Motocross Club. 

In the auto class Liam Bell was on form again, taking 4 holeshots and running 1-1-2-1 to secure a 39 point lead in the championship heading into round 3. Rhys Whyment was unfortunate that mechanical issues forced him to DNF race 4 which resulted in him taking 9th overall. Declan Scally and Roddy McGillivray were battling hard to secure 2nd & 3rd place overall. 

Local boy Jack Fletcher took 4 race wins in the 65cc class ahead of Euan Watson and Lee Cameron. Cameron leads Watson in the championship by 3 points. 

Ayden Smith was back to his usual best in 85SW after a very nasty injury picked up in Tain. Smith had 3 holeshots and 4 race wins, mixing it up with some of the fast big wheel riders. Dylan Kerr was also on the pace to take 2nd with Gavin Scott 2 points behind him to take 3rd. Scott is showing super consistency and speed in his first season on the small wheel. 

Kyle McNicol put on a outstanding display of 4 holeshots and 4 race wins. Championship leader Logan Hendry was 2nd overall and Jay Clark took 3rd. 

In the rookie class there was a super quick line up, led by BYN rider Ben Clark who got 3 holeshots and 4 race wins. Owen Hendry battled hard all weekend to take 2nd with Sam Donnan taking 3rd.

Barry Gray was in his usual winning form in the Veterans class with 4 race wins but on Sunday Scott Murray gave him a good run for his money. There were some great battles for positions throughout the class. David Peace from Orkney was fast and consistent all weekend to take 2nd, Alan Thain took 3rd. 

In the MX2 class Alexander Brown and Jay Hague were neck and neck with nothing between them. Hague won moto 1 but had to withdraw from the remainder of the day due to mechanical problems. Brown cleaned up the remainder of the Motos to get the overall. Sean Williamson was on the pace at his local track to take 2nd followed by Lewis Kennedy. 

Brown again came straight from MX2 class to the MX1 class and put in a faultless performance with 4 race wins. He now leads both the MX2 & MX1 Championships. Aaron McCarroll (2nd overall), Fraser Norrie (3rd overall) & Jamie George were giving it everything and with only 5 points separating the top 4 there is everything to play for heading into round 3 at Rhynie on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th May. 

The club would like to thank Bryan Mackenzie and his team for the track hire, Carnegie Fuels for their continued support. Kintore Roughcasting & Richards Garage, Wick for sponsoring the holeshot awards.
