  • The British Women’s Champion Bethany Farmer who also is a Purbeck member.
  • Dan Thornhill who has ridden in a round of the World Motocross Grand Prix.
  • 16-year-old Charlotte Hall from Weymouth who is currently ranked 5th in the British Women’s Championships and has ridden for the International team.
