SACU Safe Access Motocross Championship – Round 3
Youngster, John Adamson, was in action on his AAA Bikesport KTM 250 at the Scottish Motocross Championships on Sunday. Three races of hard fought action in the Adult MX2 class followed on the sandy track which was badly rutted in places due to the amount of water still lying from the recent rain. With a few British Championship contenders heading up from England, John had his work cut out to get a result.
John’s first race saw him get a great start only to be involved in a collision in the third turn resulting in his rear brake lever sticking out at right angles to the bike. This caused Adamson to have two big crashes leaving him battered and bruised but he still managed to fight on to third at the flag. John’s next two races were more a matter of survival as he found it impossible to push as hard as he would have liked. Still, he battled on to two second places leaving him second overall and second in the championship.
John’s dad and mechanic who prepares John’s bikes said “Once again John has showed the grit and determination needed to succeed in motocross”.
