The crash the put paid to Springbok Motocross multiple champion Collin Dugmore’s place in the South African motocross team at the World Vets MXDN event at Farleigh Castle UK on September 16/17
Three weeks ago, the South African Motocross Vets team was finalised and looking good for this year’s event as they knew they had one of the hottest teams they had ever fielded for in the MXDN World International Vets championship at Farleigh Castle UK. Made up of 3 very capable top Springbok multiple Motocross National champion riders, South Africa had never had a team consisting of three Springboks Collin Dugmore, Ryan Hunt and Tony Riddell, plus the very capable Andre David who certainly has the credentials to be in the team plus the experience due to him being based in the UK for several years competing in the British MX2 and MX1 Championship, the British 2 stroke series, and numerous events in Europe.
Collin Dugmore was a huge draw card and all SA fans wanted to see him competing this year knowing that he still competes, run a race school in Germany and is still very race fit.
We really had a very formidable team for this year’s event,” said team manager sponsor and SA team support rider, Gavin Williams. Then disaster struck which can always happen in this sport a huge crash put Dugmore out for the year, thankfully we had a backup rider in case something like this happened in the way of another first-class rider Neville Bradshaw who lives and races in the UK. We were sad to lose Dugmore but his replacement is the perfect rider for the team,” said Williams, Global ASP
Bradshaw since arriving in the UK in 2003 has won 2 British masters championships, is a 3 times winner of the Red Bull Pro National Championship, the British Supercross Champion, a 5 times member of South African Des Nations Team. and 3 times finishing in the top 3 positions in the British MX2 championship. He is again well placed this year in the MX2 class and currently leads the MX2 ST class overall.
“Neville will be a massive assert to the team as like Dugmore he still races regularly and wins, he is super strong and very fit being a little younger than some of the team he has an advantage, we all welcome him to the team and know he will give us the edge and an excellent chance to take some victories,” said Tork Crafts Ryan Hunt sponsor and Springbok team rider
The SA team departs early in September for the Farleigh Castle MXDN World Vets event on the 16/17th of next month it’s also thanks to the huge support from their sponsors who have made it all possible for the team, such as Motul, RwandAir, Tork Craft, World Net Logistics, Global ASP, SLFC, Jim Tarantino TRP, Mark Henderson HRP, Adam Duckworth TV UK and 2Wheels TV SA.
