Big Bike Rally challenge - Final results
Well the results have been out nearly two weeks but i've only just got round to writing them up for the blog.
The series runs over six events:
Keilder K2 Desert Rose Rally
With the top five results counting towards the final results. Actually nobody in the Challenge seems to have done all six, so for all competitors it's just their five results (or less) that count.
And the good news is that with only two rallies under my belt, I managed to get joint 29th place in the singles class out of a total of 45 entries. Not bad for a complete beginner even though I say so myself!
The singles class was won by Craig Bounds, with a clean sweep of five victories and 100 points. Craig started the series on a BMW 650 X Challenge but switched to a Husqvana TE610 halfway through. Steve Hague came second with 92 points on a KTM 690R and Craig's fellow Dakar veteran Patsy Quick took third with 77 points, also riding a 690.
In the twins class it was another clean sweep for Lyndon Poskitt also with five wins and 100 points. Lyndon rode a KTM 950 Adventure. Stuart Carling was second on a KTM 990 Adventure S scoring 77 points and in third place was Jonny Morris on a KTM 950 Super Enduro with 66 points.
It's little wonder Lyndon won, take a look at his performance in the final special stage at the Cambrian Rally:
