The Ryan Brothers – Elliot and Scott - from Downham, were back in action in the fourth round of this year’s MAXXIS ACU British Sidecarcross Championship.

They travelled to Milton MX Park, near Northampton, to take on some 40 outfits and the siblings qualified 15th overall on the tight and twisting track with its heavy clay surface.

Luckily, conditions remained dry and in the first race they produced some very consistent lap times to eventually finish the race in 11th place.

This was a creditable performance, as the really boggy areas of the track were demanding on both riders.

In their second outing, the duo were eighth at one points, but a small mistake in one of the wetter sections caused them to drop back down to finish 13th.

Their progress hasn’t gone unnoticed by some of the senior outfits currently competing at World Championship level.

Prior to the race, the number four pairing of Jarvis/Nilson offered some advice on their suspension set up.

The next round is due to take place at Dean Moor, Cumbria, on July 24 with the pair 16th in the standings overall.
