Bridgestone have wrapped up their first domestic motocross title of the 2019 season at the weekend, as JSR Racing’s James Dodd wrapped up the AMCA Superclass at Lower Drayton.
The ultra competitive class combines the top 15 riders from MX1 and MX2, plus the two highest finishers in last year’s veteran, 2-stroke and women’s championships.
Dodd went into the weekend with the #1 red plate, but has faced stiff competition from Josh Waterman of IDS Transport Yamaha all season long, while teammate Andy Smart has also pushed him hard.
James impressed in qualifying, going around 2 seconds faster than his closest competitor, and he translated that speed into a win in the opening moto with Waterman in second and Smart in third to make it an all-Bridgestone podium.
The result was repeated in the second moto, despite Waterman once again setting the fastest lap of the race. In the final moto, Smart managed to get the better of his teammate to take the final Superclass win, although second place was more than enough for Dodd to wrap up the class title.
Another JSR Racing rider who had an excellent weekend was Brad Tranter, racing at Long Lane near Telford. Brad doubled up on classes, and took 6 wins from 6, while SRH Racing’s Rory Jones took the overall win in the MX2 Experts for Bridgestone.
