Bikes: Nunn takes ...

TAKES CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD AT LIVERPOOL

MVR-D Suzuki rider, Carl Nunn, left round two of the British Supercross Championship held in Liverpool at the weekend, leading the British Open series, after solid performances on his RM-Z250 saw him finish the event with a one-point advantage over rival, Gordon Crockard.

Kicking off on Friday evening, at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, Nunn rode strongly in the first British Open race, to finish in second place and take the series lead at the beginning of the event. Riding in the first International race on the night too, Nunn rode another great race, fighting hard and eventually passing Mike Brown to take an impressive win ahead of Brown and Zach Osbourne.

With the final night seeing a repeat race format, Nunn continued his impressive consistency to finish on the podium once more in the British Open race in third, keeping his championship lead with one more round to go at the O2 arena in London this weekend. His luck would eventually run-out in the final International race after a crash while holding third place, left him to remount and finish further down the field.

Talking afterwards, Nunn commented, "I'm pretty happy with this weekend on the whole. It would have been nice to have a bigger lead going into the final round next weekend, but I can't complain. The bike ran perfectly all weekend, and without that small crash in the last race I would have been on the podium in every race."

The team now prepare for the next and final round of the series, being held this Saturday evening at the O2 arena in London.
