60 Second Update – BSEC Rnd3
Danny McCanney powered through testing conditions to secure victory at round three of the Enduro21.com ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship in Saints Well.
Heavy overnight rain ensured a slippery muddy start to round three. Greasy off-camber grass tracks, slimy roots and a plentiful supply of ruts ensured competitors were treated to a true Welsh enduro special test.
Setting the pace from the off, Beta’s Danny McCanney took an early lead as he set the fastest time on lap one. But with KTM’s Tom Sagar and Husqvarna’s Jamie Lewis only three seconds further back, the pressure was still on.
Responding, McCanney extended his lead over Sagar on lap two but a heavy rain shower on lap three saw Sagar set the fastest time. As conditions dried McCanney rode on to top the final four tests and secure victory.
Unable to match McCanney’s pace in the second half of the day, Sagar ended his day as runner-up.
Claiming his first top three result in the Elite category, KTM’s Steve Holcombe was third while Jack Rowland (Husqvarna) placed fourth. Daryl Bolter (KTM) completed the top five with Mark Roberts (KTM) and Lee Edmondson (Beta) sixth and seventh.
After a strong start to the day, Lewis was forced to stop when he injured his thumb.
In the Under 23 class, Rob Johnson (Husqvarna) made it three wins from three starts. James Dent (KTM) delivered a strong ride to take second with Frazer Norrie (KTM) in third.
KTM’s Brad Freeman topped the Under 19 class with Husqvarna’s Joe Wootton close behind in second. Lee Sealey (Husqvarna) was third.
Jordan Ridgway (Husqvarna) secured his first win of the season in the 125 Youth class while Charlie Evans (KTM) won the Expert class.
Beta’s Andrew Reeves was the best of the Expert Vets and Dai Beer (KTM) comfortably topped the Clubman Vets.
In the Clubman class it was Jack Penhaligon (Husaberg) who won.
Husqvarna’s Jane Daniels was fastest in the Women’s category.
