Bikes: Nunn takes 2-stroke win

Fresh from his MX1 British Motocross race win, at Canada Heights last weekend, MVR-D Suzuki rider, Carl Nunn, managed to repeat his race winning performance over the weekend, as he went back to the RM250 two-stroke, winning two races in the first round of the Silkolene British 2-stroke Championship, held at Mildenhall in Suffolk.

Starting inside the top-ten of race one, Nunn quickly moved into the top-three, passing early leader Luke Hill and defending champion Mark Eastwood, to take the lead. Riding strongly, Nunn held a commanding lead right to the chequered flag.

Looking to repeat his performance in the second race, Nunn started inside the top-five and quickly moved into the lead once again. With the RM250 rider looking odds-on favourite, a rope caught in his rear wheel on lap eight, brought the chances of a repeat victory to an end.

Determined to put the disappointment behind him, Nunn rode convincingly from the start, going-on to win the final race by over 40 seconds.

Talking afterwards, Nunn commented, "I'm happy overall with today, especially the last race. It was very frustrating in the second race, but I made the mistake in the first place, so can't complain too much. We're out testing again this week before Langrish, where I hope to be back on the podium once again."
