Eddy’s H20 Extreme Classic turned out to be a great day. The track was perfect and challenged the Sportsman riders through to the Jonny Walkers. Not an easy race but a hard extreme enduro as promised by Fast Eddy and his team, with a mini Erzberg style rock garden and a huge log section presenting a challenge for all the riders with lots of steep hills and gnarly descents thrown in.
In the Pro class Jonny Walker led from the start closely followed by Paul Bolton and Tom Sagar in 3rd, eventually Billy Bolt came round in 4th after a high speed dismount due to a troublesome throttle tube, causing him to lose about 7 minutes. Jonny Walker took the win with 11 laps, 3 mins 45 secs later a charging Paul Bolton took 2nd place and Billy Bolt managed an impressive 3rd with 10 laps after pushing hard beating Tom Sagar by just over a minute.
In the Expert class Keelan Hancock was faultless with his riding and took the win with nearly an 8 minute lead on Brad Williams who came in 2nd just ahead of Ben Wibberley who took 3rd.
Vets class was a very close race between Andrew Reeves and Mick Boam, both Beta mounted riders battled hard with Reeves eventually taking the win and Boam coming home in 2nd, both with 9 laps. Taking the last position on the podium was Mark Kirby with 8 laps. As always the vets class demonstrated a high standard of riding.
Clubman class saw Lee Hattersley have an outstanding ride finishing in 1st place with 8 laps ahead of Ryan Bevan who finished 2nd and Ryan Armitage who came in 3rd, both with 7 laps.
Andy Harvey took the win in the Sportsman class with Dave Handley 2nd, both with 6 laps and Henry Walker took 3rd place with 5 laps. In the Youth class Thomas Widd smashed it with 4 laps ahead of Mathias Salin who came in 2nd and Suff Sella finished 3rd.
