Round 4 on 27th July 2014 saw us head south to the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill-on-Sea, sponsored by Belray 6 in 1. We had a grandstand, running commentary, a smaller space than usual but full on sun until most of the way through the second attack, when it turned into a monsoon.
We had 30 competitors taking part, including welcoming Kristian, Kenneth and Bart from Moto Gymkhana Netherlands. To make optimum use of the space, we had a tighter course than normal but still managed to throw in some testing technical obstacles.
The first attack times raised standards high, as well as producing 10 wrong courses. Second attack reduced that number by 2 but not necessarily by the same people and then the downpour started for our last 8 competitors. Not that it dampened their spirit.
Kristian Eekhof took first place on the podium with a time of 1:19:42, Kenneth van de Broek second on 1:22:34 and Neil Wallis-Tennant on third with 1:23:21. Fastest novice medals were: Gold – Steve Laughton on 1:27:76, Silver – Andrew Rayfield with 1:29:35 and Bronze – Ian Ashford 1:31:31.
