So it was that time of year again, the race that everyone looks forward to…..The British Championships.
Cyclopark did a fantastic job of hosting the race, everything ran super smooth and it was one of the best events I have been to for a long time.
The BMXTalk race team had spent countless weekends at the track getting it dialled in and coming up with some Barnard style lines on straights that nobody else was doing.
The team has got stronger all year as I have stated before and it really all came together at this race with the best team performance of the year……ALL THE RIDERS MADE THE FINALS!! AND WE HAVE A BRITISH CHAMPION!!!!
I will start off with the big result, this was in Saturdays cruiser racing and our man Harley Taylor came away with the win and the highly prized 01 plate, so massive congrats to him.
Zoltan Buday also competed in Cruisers and came away with a thrid place, which is amazing as he does not regularly ride cruiser, congrats mate!!

After Saturdays cruiser racing it was time for the 20″ racing which was fast and furious with all the countries top riders striving to make the finals , with the huge rider count pretty much every age group had quarter finals, so to get to a final was a big deal.
All of our riders battled their way to the finals, with some great results throughout the motos -quarters and semi’s, so confidence was running high in the team tent.
First up was Harley Taylor who flew out the gate and went into the first corner in 2nd position, then on the 3rd straight he pulled level with the leader and started to make a move for 1st position only to crash in the last corner!!! but massive props to him for going for it.
Gunner was reppin in Vets and had a great day of racing , he lined up with all the big guns for the final and made a good start (Phew!!) he slotted into 3rd/4th in the first corner and held on to grab the 4th place….good laps bruv.

In the Masters final we had Matt Barnard and Zoltan Buday , Matt got a good gate and was battling mid pack, meanwhile Zoltan had unclipped out of the gate and was making moves to get back in touch , a big crash in the 2nd corner saw Matt having to brake hard and Zoltan managed to swerve it and go into 3rd whilst Matt went into 4th and that’s how they crossed the line.
