The MX2 and MX1 riders to contest in the 2017 British Championship have been announced.

Unfortunately in MX1, Shaun Simpson won’t be racing the series to try and snatch the title back so defending champion, Tommy Searle goes in as heavy favourite. Jake Nicholls, Graeme Irwin and Steven Lenoir should be right at the front too!

Good to see John Meara on the MX1 entry list, it will be interesting to see what he can do concentrating more on the British series. It wasn’t looking too good for Stuart Edmonds for a while but he will be behind the gate on his TM. Kristian Whatley is currently on the list but without a ride, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for him.

In MX2, Steve Dixon has signed Darian Sanayei to partner Brylyakov but neither will contest the British series in 2017 which is a shame.

Roger Magee has signed Josiah Natzke from New Zealand and he will surely challenge at the front amongst the likes of Barr, Watson and Belgian rider, Kevin Wouts.

Adam sterry won’t be competing in the series this year so we will definitely have a new MX2 champion in 2017, the MX2 class could provide some great racing!

It appears that Harri Kullas will race in the MX2 class for the MVRD Husqvarna outfit, he had been expected to race in the MX1 class but could be a challenger for the MX2 title.

Another unexpected name on the list is Jay Wilson, it appears he will stick around after the AX series and race the MX2 British series with the I-Fly JK Yamaha outfit.

Unfortunately, Glenn McCormick is only a reserve but hopefully he will still be behind the gate at the first round. Jason Meara and Luke Smith are both on the list though and will join Barr behind the gate at round one.
