Desertmartin Motocross Track
The weather may not have been on our side on the 12th June at Desertmartin but this certainly didn't dampen the spirt of the spectators who turned out to support all the riders on in their quest to conquer 'The Desert'
There was great racing in all the classes and 'The Desert' certainly made the riders 'race' at the top of their game . Adam Sterry dominated the MX2 class with two wins out of two while Jake Nicholls take race 1 in the MX1 after Graeme Irwin crashed out while in the lead and Tommy Seale took the top spot in race two with Graeme second . James Carpenter took the top two spots in the MXY2 class a name to watch out for in the future

MOUNTAIN VIEW MOTOCROSS TRACK & 'THE DESERT' PRACTICE TRACK
Mountainview Motocross Track has now opened for practice days for the past two year and so far the feed back has been very good . Its only half a mile from our main track and is a sand based track suitable for riding in all weather .
We have also set up a practice track at The Desert which is out in the back section of the track . It is used on set days as we alternate between tracks .
Both tracks run under controlled timed session and groups are grade according to ability ie grade A riders will not ride out with Grade c , youth will ride separate from adults and quads will not be out with solos etc . this way we keep safe practice and everyone gets loads of safe practice time . Flag marshals and first aid trained staff are always there.
Normal days of opening at this stage are Monday to Friday for all bikes quads , sidecars , solos but riders must book in for week days contact 07927 990313 before 9.00pm the previous night .
Mountainview will be open most Saturdays (weather permitting ) but may vary from week to week as we try to give everyone maximum track time ie One week all Solos Youth and adult , next week maybe Quads and adult solos or youth might be at the Desert while adults are at Mountainview – follow us on face book to see what is happening each week or text 07731438170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates .
