For the first time this year both of the British Supermoto racing brothers from Murcia were in action at the 2nd round of the Valencian championship at Oliva, near Denia.
The brothers were in devastating form, with Mat Ford-Dunn racing in the SM Masters class and younger brother Anthony in the tougher SM Open category.
Both brothers were trying new rear suspension parts that made the handling of the bikes near perfect for the fast flowing corners of the Oliva race track. Qualifying went well, with Anthony 2nd in his class and Mat on pole for the SM masters.
With the two classes racing together it was the first time this year that the brothers had lined up on the same grid.
The first of their two races saw Anthony lead the opening laps before being overtaken by Spanish Ace, Israel Esclarera.
The two riders battled hard for the rest of the race with Israel taking the win with Anthony a very close 2nd. Mat was a little too keen away from the start of the first race and had to make a jump start, stop and go penalty before rejoining the race. The penalty didn’t stop him from charging through the field to finish a close 2nd behind the leader in the SM Masters class.
The 2nd race saw Anthony repeat his fantastic start from race 1 and this time he opened up a small lead until a mistake in the dirt section allowed Israel past and Anthony had to be content with another 2nd position. Mat managed a clean start this time, and soon battled his way into the lead of the SM masters class, opening up a lead to finish first at the flag and take the overall SM masters victory with his 2nd-1st results.
Anthony managed a superb 2nd overall in the much tougher SM Open class with his two 2nd positions.
The Brothers and their sponsors, ‘Advance Moves International Removals’ would like to thank the many spectators and race fans that turned up to the race and the support and encouragement that was given at a great days racing.
