With only three weeks to go until the gates drop for Round 4 of the Thor British Youth Nationals, it’s fantastic to be back at Milton Malsor in Northamptonshire as the series is well and truly starting to heat up with championship titles being neck and neck already in most classes.

The track has seen many changes over the years and has held rounds of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship, so it’s great to bring the series back since our last visit in 2014.

Milton Malsor is fast and flowing, with a wide variety of jumps, rhythm sections and high speed turns this venue will leave you on a motocross high second to none.

In the 65cc class Charlie Heyman is holding a strong lead with taking nineteen race wins, however had an unlucky final race in Leuchars. The rest of the top runners in the series Alfie Jones, Bailey Johnston, Kiean Boughen and Wal Beaney are giving it their all to push up in the championships and let’s see what Milton Malsor brings could it shake up things for the boys.

Small Wheel 85cc Championship is a strong class for the series with some fast top runners, Ike Carter is the lad to be watching as he pushes to carry his lead further into Round 4 but there’s nothing stopping Bobby Bruce and Jack Grayshon giving Ike a run for the points at Milton.

Rossi Beard well what an outstanding rider and proving to be a rider to watch in the Thor 85BW Champs as he moves up in the future potentially into the 125 or Open class. He currently has a big enough lead going into round four however Callum Mitchell, Josh Peters, Dominic Lancett and Reece Martin will be trying their best to grab those all important points for the championship

Finally, the Open Class and Dexter Douglas is a man on a mission but we aren’t at the end of the series yet so there is plenty of chopping and changing that could happen over the final few rounds to mix up the championship for the year. George Grigg-Pettitt, Alexander Brown, David Galvin and Jed Etchells all giving their full attention and pushing it to the limit to take those all important points in the championship.

Well round 4 of the series is one to watch and we hope all riders a fantastic weekend racing.
