Read the full team report from the weekend below:

 

With four British titles in the bag from their inaugural season in 2018, the pressure was on for the Official KTM UK Youth MX Team to perform this year at the Judd KTM British Youth Championship, and they didn't disappoint! 10 team riders competed across 6 categories, hitting podium in all bar one, at the opening round held at Culham, Oxfordshire at the weekend!
 
Rocket Robbie Daly in the Auto's led the team charge with a perfect card! Five races equalled five 1sts in a dominant display for the overall Auto win! Preston Williams won the 125's not dropping out of the top two the whole weekend scoring 1-2-2-1-2, with Rookie team mate Louie Kessell joining him on the podium with a stupendous 3rd overall, and 1st in the 125 Rookies! 

Reigning SW85 British Champion Bailey Johnston stepped up to the Big Wheels this year with customary intent scoring a consistent 3-3-3-3-3 for 3rd on the podium and 1st in the BW85 Rookies. Ben Mustoe was back competing in the SW85's after only two weeks off crutches from a broken leg. An excellent ride of 2-2-3-3-6 saw him take 3rd step on the podium, with vital points and time now to build his fitness before the next round. 

Off the back of his 125 British title Drew Anderson also moved up a category this season to the Opens. His focused determination by riding the last two races with a broken hand won't have gone unmissed by his fellow competitors, especially to score 4-2-3-3-3 for 3rd overall, and 2nd in the Open Rookies. SW85 Rookie McKenzie Marshall started & finished well with a 5-16-23-6-9 card for 9th overall and 4th in the SW85 Rookies. Whilst in his first year in the Auto's young Riley-Ray Barrow impressed, finding his feet on day two going 5-9-5 for 10th overall and 8th in the Auto Rookies. The 65 riders fought hard all weekend, with Zane Stephens securing 12th overall and Archie Britton a solid 15th in the 65 Rookies.
