MX - Motocross 2016

The ACU Maxxis British Motocross Championship is recognised as one of the major domestic motocross series in the world. Sponsored by Maxxis tyre manufacturer, the eight-round championship, runs from March to September, and attracts the best national talent infused with international interest. The Championship consists of three classes, MX1, MX2, MXY2, with the 40 registered riders selected on previous years standings plus grand prix achievements. 

Sean Simpson, (pictured above) reigning champion for consecutive years in 2014 and 2015, will be aiming to make it a treble in 2016. Stuart Brown and Joshua Chamberlain, pictured under were unstoppable again in 2015, despite some tough competition - will they be impossible to get in front of again at the circuit finishing lines in 2016?
