29th October 2011 - Low North Park, Near Scarborough
The latest big name to agree terms with rideoffroadUK for the Iron Man Xtreme Enduro is HM Plant Red Bull KTM's MX2 GP star Jake Nicholls. Jake who is a self confessed enduro fan, will be competing in the worlds first Iron Man Xtreme Enduro on Saturday October 29th at Low North Park near Scarborough. Nicholls has already been training on the technical aspects of Xtreme enduro riding. He has done his homework and is up for the challenge ahead. He will be joined by another newcomer to this event, Jamie Law. Jamie who trains with Jonny Walker knows exactly what to expect from this cross over event and is extremely looking forward to getting stuck in.
Jake Nicholls commented "I am excited about doing the enduro, I always ride a little bit of enduro in the winter for fun but this will be my first extreme enduro. I am nervous but excited at the same time about it as I know how tough it will be especially against the competitive field of trial and enduro riders. I will be practicing the next couple of weeks on as many man made and natural obstacles as I can to try and be more prepared for the race. I hope there will be some motocross fans there to support me on the day!"
Catching up with MX star Jamie Law he said "I had my arm twisted by Jonny Walker to do this he's been on at me for ages to get an Enduro done. I'm sorting a bike with Neil from Triple D and looking forward to doing a bit of hard training after the Supercross with JW. I hope everyone will cheer me on when I'm going down the 'chicken' route!!"
Another top name dipping his toe in the Xtreme water is British Superbike rider - Samsung Crescent Suzuki's Jon Kirkham. Jon loves his off road riding which keeps him super fit during the tarmac off season. Kirkham will bring an army of tarmac supporters to cheer him on in this end of season off road classic. JK as he is better known has been a popular face on the BSB podium this year, always a smile on his face and always game for fun, he is very excited about attempting the Xtreme Enduro on the 29th October.
These new signings will be joining the stars that have already signed...Brad Anderson, Jonny Walker, Wayne Braybrook, Jack Challoner, Neil Flockhart, Gary Jenkins, Harry Hillas, Scott Austin, Jane Daniels...plus many more!
