Steve Holcombe

World Champion Steve Holcombe is looking forward to the event and said “It’s been an incredible year for me, winning the FIM EnduroGP World Championship. Being able to now enjoy a few races close to my home in the UK is something I’m really looking forward to. Away from the pressure of international competition, I’m really looking forward to enjoying the racing at the Weymouth Beach Race. During the year I’ve spent a lot of time riding on sand, but this will be my first beach race this year. The bigger, high-pressure races are behind me this year, so I can’t want to get back to the kind of racing I grew up doing and enjoy myself this weekend.”

The weather forecast is looking good for Sunday and the spectators are in for a thrilling and spectacular event with over a 100 riders lined up at each start, no other Motocross event allows the public get so close to the action.
