RHL Activities is pleased to announce that KTM Enduro Factory’s Jonny Walker is eager to improve on his debut performance at the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race last year, and has entered again this year for the event on October 13-15.
As one of the best offroad motorcycle athletes in the world, known for winning some of the toughest battles including the Erzberg Red Bull Hare Scramble, Red Bull Romaniacs, Hell’s Gate, The Tough One, Red Bull 111 Megawatt and many others, Walker is no stranger to most difficult endurance races for both man and machine.
Last year the 26-year-old Cumbrian-flyer came to compete at the Weston-Super-Mare event without any prior testing and finished in an impressive sixth place, despite pitting five times for fuel during the three-hour solo race and crashing on lap two while taking on the tough sand dunes.
This year Walker has vowed to up his game and is looking to capitalise on his experience at this ultra-special event with his eyes set on at least a podium finish and is looking forward to competing at a ‘home’ event.
Jonny Walker: “I really enjoyed Weston Beach Race last year; I had no idea what to expect but what a mega event – I pretty much signed up straight away to come back again. It’s a specialist race and without experience it’s not easy to prepare for, so at least this year I know more of what to expect, a little bit about the strategy and we can be more prepared with the bike.
The atmosphere is incredible, and racing against the British fans at a home race is very special for me. I was happy with the result last year and definitely learned a lot, which will be really useful going into this year’s event. It’s good to be back racing outdoors, and it will be really great to get back to Weston in October.”
