Following the previous two rounds held in Scotland and Northern Ireland, next up this weekend for the widely travelled British Youth Nationals is the penultimate round at Landrake in Cornwall.
Taking a look at the championship standings after four rounds, it’s too close to call in two of the sections.
Wal Beaney has a comfortable looking 75-point advantage over Ollie Colmer, and that’s going to take some pulling back.
Both boys performed admirably at the recent World Juniors and they’re the obviously the race favourites going into round five.
The situation behind the leading pair is tight and competitive as Finlay Evans sits in series third, just 13 points ahead of the newly-crowned Pirelli 65s champion Keelan Hope.
Rounding out the top six – and also in with a good chance of improving their series standings – Fin Wilson and Roan Delaney square up.
In the Small-wheel 85s –after claiming the last three round victories, which included some titanic battle up against Alfie Jones – Vinnie Guthrie tops the standings 14 points clear.
Expect this all-absorbing head to head, one of the best in this year’s championship, to continue around the GP-length, old school Landrake circuit.
Having recently defended his Pirelli Big-wheel 85s title successfully and just last weekend won the MX Nationals crown, Dominic Lancett could go a long way to securing his third title of the season in Cornwall.
Following outstanding shows at all four rounds so far, Lancett’s lead is 124 points ahead of Kyle McNicol.
Team Green Kawasaki star Bobby Bruce is bang in form just three points behind McNicol – and the scrap for series second is one to keep an eye on.
In the 125s, the other commanding lead of the championship belongs to Putoline Husqvarna’s newly crowned MX Nationals champion Rossi Beard.
Going for title No.2, he holds a towering 125-point advantage over Drew Anderson.
Ryan Allison sits in third having moved up following his superb round-four show. Calum Mitchell has proved a consistent race winner at previous rounds, and sits fourth, just 10 points behind Allison.
Along with fifth-placed Sam Nunn (Lings Husqvarna) also expect some fireworks in this section coming from MBO Power-pilot Ike Carter.
Moving on to the final section, the Youth Open, all eyes will surely be on the top three as just 42 points covers them.
With that said, Redline Honda backed Howard Wainwright, another of the recently crowned Pirelli champions, has a decent enough 35-point lead over HCR Yamaha’s Tom Grimshaw.
Previous round winner Jed Etchells is third, just seven points behind Grimshaw.
