Brass Monkeys Enduro ready for BEC bonanza

Brass Monkeys Enduro ready for BEC bonanza

Round one winner - Danny McCanney

After a successful opening round in Dorset, the ACU British Enduro Championship travels further west, but still in the south, to what looks like being a wet and wild Brass Monkeys Enduro in Devon.

Danny McCanney will line up as one of the main contenders on his Factory TM after his recent round one win in Dorset and double podium at the Italian Championship. Other favourites are local riders Alex Snow and Dan Mundell who will set off alongside Danny.

Snow, who grew up in Tiverton just a few minutes away, will be looking to better or match his runner-up place from round one. Mundell will also be looking for another podium result on his Sherco.
Other notable riders include Tom Sagar and Jack Edmondson who will be looking to minimise mistakes and improve from their round one results.

Also making an appearance is reigning EnduroGP World Champion, Steve Holcombe, who will of course come in as a favourite, especially after his recent victory at the Italiano Enduro.
In the Experts Aaron Gordon will be looking to back up his round one win and put the Sherco back on top.

Henry Yardley will be aiming for top honours after second at the first round, but Harry Edmondson is definitely one to watch and will want to beat Yardley to the 125 honours. Local man Richard Tucker will also want to better his fourth place result on home turf. James Palmer is the clear favourite in the Clubman after a dominant win in Dorset but Josh Kirby and Ross Kerr will be keen to challenge him, though.

In the Over 40s Andrew Edwards would be a safe bet for a victory or a podium on his Beta, however Vincent Harker will want to take his first win of the year. Andrew Reeves is another man to keep an eye on, as is another local entrant Jon Tarr.

Richard Hay has got a long journey from Scotland to try and back up his round one victory, however Russell Millward has an arguably longer journey from the Isle of Man.  Gary McCoy will want to beat the ‘foreigners’ though and hold down the fort for the Devonshire crew.

Address for this round: Bampton Down Lane, Huntsham, Tiverton, Devon, EX16 7NJ
