Brad Freeman – A BSEC Revelation!
Claiming six consecutive victories in the British Sprint Enduro Championship it would be an understatement to say that 17-year old Brad Freeman has been the revelation of the 125 Youth class.
For the KTM rider, the 2013 season has been more than perfect. Starting off with two very convincing victories during rounds one and two at Chavenage Farm, Freeman continued to grow both in confidence and speed.
While winning his class by considerable margins, it was his position in the overall standings that caught people’s attention. Breaking into the top 20 at the season opener, the youngster edged ever closer towards the front of the field as the series progressed.
Delivering one of his best rides of the season to date at Westwood, Freeman posted times that would see him challenge for a top 10 result while also wrapping up the 125 Youth class with two rounds to spare.
“It’s been an absolute perfect season,” confirmed Freeman at the end of round six in Westwood, Sheffield. “My goal all year was to win the championship but to do it by winning every race so far has been better than expected.
“To be honest I didn’t think I’d win every round of the series but thankfully it worked out in my favour. Last year I felt I won it by default when Jamie McCanney got injured so this year I feel the title was deserved.”
With the championship now in the bag what’s next for Freeman, will he decided to move classes for the final two rounds of the season in Oxford?
“Probably not,” told Freeman. “I don’t want to move up a class until I know I’m ready for it. I’m only 17 years old so I’ve still plenty of time to change classes. I love riding the 125 and I want to stay on it for the rest of the year. After that we’ll sit down and decide what to do for 2014. Right now I just want to finish off the season on a high.”
