It’s been a busy July for the Supermoto racing brothers from Murcia. Both Anthony and Mat Ford-Dunn were in action at the 3rd round of the Catalan championship earlier in the Month with Mat finishing 3rd and 2nd in his two races for 2nd overall and Anthony having a fantastic ride to finish 1st and 2nd that gave him the overall win in the SM Open class.
After the confidence boosting results from the Catalan championship at Alcarras the brothers were next out at the Samper de Calanda circuit in Aragon for the 3rd round of the Spanish Supermoto championship. The fast and flowing circuit suited more powerful machines but the brothers put in a superb display on their Advance Moves International Removals sponsored machines, in the extremely hot conditions to come away with some strong results.
The brothers had mixed fortunes with Anthony at the front of the pack in the SM open class before three different problems in each of his three races prevented him from achieving the podium position that he so rightly deserved. In the first race he had to make a stop and go penalty for jumping the start despite not having gained an advantage, in the 2nd race he was knocked off his bike in the 2nd corner and just to top the day off, he had a rear puncture in the final race of the day! Despite the catalogue of disasters he still finished 6th overall and knows that his pace is strong, he just needs a little more luck next time out.
It appeared that whilst Anthony was suffering with bad luck his older brother Mat was having all the good luck in the SM Masters class as he finished in 3rd and 2nd positions in his two races for 2nd overall, and enough points to push him into the championship lead. Mat now leads the championship by 11 points at the halfway point of the season and with the Summer break ahead the brothers will be training hard to achieve even better results when racing resumes in September.
