The Apico 2-Stroke Festival, featuring the Red Bull Pro Stroke National, is gathering momentum as riders and headline brands pledge their support for the two-day event, set for August 20-21 at Sellindge, Kent.
Two lucky riders competing in the Apico Youth classes will be selected to become Leatt-supported athletes and will each receive Leatt kit with a retail value of £2,500. The products, which will include a Leatt helmet, goggles, race kit and boots, are guaranteed to be delivered to the Apico 2-Stroke Festival Leatt Youth Athlete four weeks after the event.
The prizes will be awarded to the two Youth riders who the judges believe best represent UK youth motocross, not necessarily the ones who simply win on the track.
“I guess you could say we’re looking for youth ambassadors for the sport,” said the Festival’s promoter Dave Willet. “It’s way more than just what you see on the track as we’ll also look at how they conduct themselves when not racing and check out their social media pages and so on. The riders we choose for this considerable level of Leatt support will, in our opinion, be the ‘all-round package’.
“We’re encouraging all riders to get their entries in early as we want to help raise their individual profiles by sharing their relevant social posts and also featuring them on our social channels, particularly in the build-up to the 2022 Apico 2-Stroke Festival.”
The Apico Youth classes cover BW85, SW85 and 125, with entries now available online via www.goracemx.com – search by track; Sellindge.
