Team Vampires Rock Motul keeps Rocking On
Three Nationals in Four Weeks
It has been a very busy few weeks so far for the Vampires Rock Motul Motocross team, with many of the Championship races falling week after week. The fifth round of the GT Cup was the first national Jordan Hearn on the BW85 rode exceptionally well all weekend with three top 10 finishes and 14th overall, he is now lying in eighth in the Championship standings with two races still to come.
All the team were present and racing at the British Youth Nationals at Culham Park. The Junior riders Ozzie Murray and Jack Grayshon had a solid weekend. Jack managed to finish in fifth overall on a very demanding track after torrential rain over night that nearly stopped the second round before it even started. Jack is now lying in fourth place overall in the Championship standings and has now been chosen to ride in the World Junior Championships in Belgium this year. Ozzie also had a good weekend, he gained poor starts in each race and had to battle through the packed 40 riders to gain two 20 positions, finishing in 24th overall over the weekend.
Jordan Hearn faced an extremely competitive class in the 85 series and one of the toughest series in the Championship. In only his first year, Jordan is doing a fantastic job and secured five top 20 finishes over the weekend and lies 17th after two rounds.
The ORMS National at Pontrilas was the third round for the Vampires Rock Motul team and the weather was perfect, the track dry and hard pack so some fast racing was on the cards. With only Jordan and Ozzie competing, both did a great job. Ozzie got good starts and was consistently finishing in the top four, he managed to finish in third overall over the weekend. Jordan rode well but struggled with his starts but was still able to gain five top ten finishes, he is now lying in eighth overall in the Championship standings with two rounds remaining.
Team Manager/Owner Steve Steinman – “I’m really pleased with all my riders, they are all doing great and reaching the goals they set out for themselves. I’m very proud of Jack for getting picked to ride in the World Championships he’s really worked hard over the last few years and it’s well deserved. All the boys are improving every week and I couldn’t be happier with their results. Jack and Ozzie will be competing as part of the British team at the Masterkids in Commercy, France and they will also be riding in the Everts and Friends in Belgium later in the year. A big thanks to all our sponsors for their support and I will look forward in reporting back to you with the next championship results.”
