Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee’s Roger Magee, says results from the Canada Heights round of the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship fuelled by Gulf Race Fuels have put their Swedish ace Isak Gifting back in title contention.

Gifting ran out a comfortable winner in both MX2 motos at the Swanley circuit in Kent – his first win on British soil.

His winning margins were impressive, with 38 seconds ahead of Dylan Walsh in the first outing, followed by a 27-second gap in the second moto, again ahead of British-born Kiwi Walsh.

Gifting’s team-mate Kay Karssemakers also enjoyed his time at the Heights with two third places to help Magee’s KTM outfit to a dominant weekend.

“On yet another new track for both Isak and Kay, the results today were just what we needed to get back into contention for the 2022 MX2 British championship,” Magee said.

“With both Isak and Kay on the overall podium in P1 and P3, respectively, and Isak regaining the red plate, it was a really good day at the ‘office’ and is a testament to the hard work by both riders and all of the team personnel, who always put in the long hours and hard work to make it all happen.

“Cole McCullough had a real learning day and had a few small crashes, which dented his overall points tally, but he will learn from today and come back stronger. I want to dedicate this win today to my Dad who is going through some tough health times at the moment and is showing real determination to fight against the odds.”

Isak Gifting: “Canada Heights was great for me! I enjoyed the track and went one-one. It was great training for this weekend’s MXGP of Spain. I took control of the red plate today as well – I was very happy to do that for the Hitachi KTM fuelled by Milwaukee team.”

A modest Karssemakers reviewed his day. “I had a bad start in the first moto, because someone crashed in front of me, but I made my way to third and actually got closer to second place towards the end,” he said. The riding was good in that moto!

“I got a better start in the second race, but I lost my rhythm a little bit and had to settle for third. It was an okay day!”

The team now turn their attention to the FIM Motocross World Championship this weekend in Spain.
