Dylan Walsh kick-starts Revo Seven Kawasaki Team racing MX1 at Opening Round of ACU British Motocross Championship this weekend.

True to Dylan’s grit and determination to fulfill racing career overseas, the silver linings 2020 brought were in fact beneficial for overall goals. Dylan: ‘I was super stoked to get the opportunity to race under Jacky Martens– JM Honda Racing Team- at number of GP Rounds last year. I felt like I could ride the 450 at speed, leading some laps, now I need to put the whole package together’. 

Dylan, joined by team-mate James Dunn, contests Round One at Culham Park, Norfolk, on May 1st.

Across in the USA, Rachael Archer steps up to the line, racing GNCC WXC Round 6, Hoosier at Ironman Raceway this weekend. Standing 2nd Overall in points, Archer defies all odds that battling against seasoned riders of up to 10 years experience is no big deal when she has her own sights firmly set on taking Overall win by the end of the season.

With a full racing schedule lined up all the way to the end of October, you can bet Rach stands proud of all the hard work, effort, commitment and resources that it has taken to stay on current trajectory of her racing career.
