Gipsey Bridge rider Broderick Whitmore-Wilson powered his way to victory at the Shuckburgh round of the Cotswold Enduro championship last week.

The 20-year-old lined up against more than 170 competitors in the two-hour long race, riding his Honda CRF450R.

He got a great start on the heavily-wooded, four-mile long circuit and soon began to build a lead over his pursuers.

“I’m not the best at starts, but I quickly worked my way to the front and tried my hardest to capitalise on the clear track,” said Broderick.

“The track was quite technical and I had quite a few run-ins with trees, but the biggest challenge was my pit stop.

“I had to get off my bike and fuel it myself, which cost me the lead and a lot of time”.

Fuelled up, Broderick got back to the front of the pack and eventually crossed the line two minutes and 36 seconds ahead of his nearest rival.

“Taking the win was fantastic,” he added. “I really enjoyed the challenge of a different track and hope it will help my confidence in my main championship pursuit.”

Broderick is currently second in the Banovallum Motorcycle Club Expert Enduro championship and hopes to reduce his two point deficit on the leader.
