Since the recent announcement that Team GB had been promoted to third place at the 2018 MXoN held at Red Bud, following the disqualification of Team Italy. The ACU have been looking at a suitable way to acknowledge the team of their achievement of taking back to back podium finishes.
With the first major Motocross event of the year taking place this weekend at the Hawkstone International it was fitting that the ACU will be making a presentation to the three riders, Ben Watson, Max Anstie, Tommy Searle and team manager Mark Chamberlain during the lunch break at around 12pm.
All three riders will be giving an award on behalf of the ACU and interviewed briefly prior the start of the main races.
ACU MX Committee Chairman, Steve McCauley: ‘This is a tremendous achievement by not just the riders but also the manager and everyone involved in the Team GB effort. There will be an FIM medal ceremony at the British GP however with the huge crowd expected at Hawkstone we felt it was the perfect venue to show our appreciation and present this special award.’
