The British BMX Series hit Perry Park, Birmingham last weekend for rounds 3&4 and the riders were treated to a finely groomed raceway which in turn threw up some awesome race action for the fans. The Identiti BMX team were in the thick of the action across the weekend with all the guys making their way into the mains.
The vibes in the team pits were as chilled as ever with Mrs Redgewell keeping the kettle hot and the all-important cups of tea were flowing. Our Syd was working the social side and keeping the passing fans entertained as they popped in to visit the riders.
Out on track Christian White is hitting up his first full season of national racing and after taking the B final wins at Manchester he was looking to take it one step further at Birmingham and make the mains. His weekend started as badly as it probably could as he went OTB while leading out his first moto and had to regroup to find his way through the qualifiers. Coming back out for moto two, he smashed it from the gate and set himself back in the game!! He continued that theme, minus the crash through both days of racing, even stepping up to the semi win on Sunday. Come the mains he was set and the goal was achieved, anything else on top was all gravy from here on in. The nerves got to him a bit as the gate dropped, but once the pack were through the first turn, he held his own amongst the deep competition in the 15s class and kept himself in the fight with a fine air of 5th place finishes. The ball is rolling!!
