Following on from the successful British Under 21 Final at Berwick on Tuesday night, all eyes and attention now are focusing to the British Under 19 Final which is being held at Ipswich on Thursday 17th May.
As well documented through being able to host two British Under 21 Semi Finals, the talent of Under 19s is at is highest level and in fact there will be a number of riders disappointed to be missing out on a place in the final.
With last year’s British Under 19 winner Zach Wajtknecht now being ineligible, there will be a new British Champion crowned on the night. Last years rostrum placed finishers Dan Bewley and Kyle Bickley will be amongst the favourites along with British Semi Final winner Jack Thomas.
There will also be a lot of local interest with Mildenhall having three representatives in Jordan Jenkins, Sam Bebee and Drew Kemp. Along with Kemp there will also be two other 15 year olds competing in Jason Edwards and Leon Flint Bickley, Kemp, Flint and Tom Brennan will be hoping to add a British Under 19 title to their already impressive Championship wins at British Youth Level.
