What a race for the second regional of the year at Knowsley BMX track. Mr. Walker and the gang put on a great practice on the Saturday and a class run event on the Sunday. The Outlaws had a 15 strong team on show who all put 110% effort in producing some great results on the day.

Billy Wise took the jump up into expert having only done 1 North regional in the novice category. It was a big ask but Billy held his own and took a 3rd, 6th, 4th,4th. Giving him 4th on the day, leaving him 8th overall in the category with 94 points after only doing one round in experts. A superb result and a great achievement. Well done Billy!

Hollie Nolan had a stormer of a day taking three 1st’s in the motos and was unlucky not to take the win in the moto GP final storming down the back straight to catch the Derby rider to the line. Giving her the win overall on the day and voted rider of the day from the team! Hollie is sitting top of the table so far with 198 points. Well done Hollie!
Francesca Smith had a great day also taking 3rd, 2nd and 3rd in the motos and a consistent 3rd in the final. Franky sitting a close second place overall with 196 points, 6 points clear of the field! This track not suiting Franky as Crewe did the week before where Franky took the win. One each to our Outlaw girls, keep it up!

Billy-Neil McVicar maintained his superb performance from last week with a belter of a race coming home with 3rd, 3rd, 1st and 3rd in the A final.

A North region win isn’t far from grabs. Tyler stands 3rd overall with 188 points.
Corey Nolan received massive credit from all the parents yesterday with nothing going his way on the mechanical side! Lots of effort from the team parents in the pits to get his bike back up to racing. Corey wasn’t phased even when it looked as though he wasn’t going to be able to race. Corey did great to take 3rd, 5th and 3rd in his motos with an unlucky semi took a 6th which took him into the B final and narrowly missed out on the win taking 2nd place. Corey sits at 9th place with 162 points. Great attitude Corey!

Imogen Gibson showed no holding back and lots of strength all day, taking great positions 1st, 2nd, 2nd and 1st taking the win on the day. Bar to bar racing on the outside of the second straight, stayed strong in the berm to push to the lead down the third. Currently sitting 2nd in the 13 category with 196 points, 2 away from the top spot.
Freya Smith showed great determination throughout the day. Got a great start in her first moto going into the berm in second place had the bike wash out. Got back on the bike finished her race and continued the day with a dead leg, if the track isn’t hard enough! Taking 6th, 7th, 7th, and 7th. Sharing the 4th spot overall with 182 points. When Freya starts getting the confidence to go with the riding skills she already has, we will see a different lady!
Well done ladies.

Ryan Musgrave gave an incredible performance racing two bikes, and I must stress on a killer of a track! He was consistent on his 20 taking 2nd, 2nd, 5th and 3rd in motos and semis. The final not as plane sailing getting a bad start got himself into third in the berm with a rider going down in front of him, and the riders bike went airborne hitting Ryan. Sideways hanging on to his bike off his pedals somehow kept it going to take a 6th. Giving him a 5th overall with 188 points 6 a drift from first place.
Ryan had the 13-14 category to deal with on the cruiser, but kept his cool bringing in 3rd, 2nd, 6th, and 3rd. Giving him a second on the day in his category, and with a 198 points top of his table.
Massive respect racing two bikes on that track it’s a leg buster!

Dan Cay missing Crewe and just returning from a skiing trip in France, done well through his motos 3rd, 4th, 4th. Tired legs and a busy semi gave him a 6th and finished the B final in 5th place. Currently sitting 25th but this won’t stay like this I’m sure!
