Alfie is a motocross champion from Plymouth. He’s been riding from a young age where’s he become a leading youth motocross competitor, competing all across the UK and in Europe. NESC partnered with Alfie in early 2020, where we continue our support and follow his progress. Here’s a piece from Alfie himself:
“I started riding when I was about 3 years old on a PW50. My sister was
racing motocross so I followed in her footsteps. I started racing at 6 years
old. My first year racing I won the South Somerset Club Championship on a
KTM 50 in 2010. Unfortunately, a few injuries along the way have meant in
regards to championships, I have had to sit out of some races. But, I’ve had
some good results and been able to compete at national level throughout my
career so far.
“In 2017 I won the South West Championship on a KTM 85 small wheel. I also
won the Matt Hampton Foundation Cup this year and finished 4th as a wildcard
rider at the British Youth Nationals at my local track, Landrake.
“I’ve also competed in the Weston Beach Race every year since 2014 and had
some good finishes.
“My last championship race day was at the BSMA Nationals on a KTM 85 big
wheel in 2018 where I had some good results, finishing top 4 against some of
the best riders in the country, but unfortunately a crash left me with a
ruptured ACL, MCL and meniscus damage in my knee. I underwent a knee
reconstruction and 12 months of rehabilitation, but I’m now back training and
competing full time again. I competed at the 2019 Weston Beach Race as my first
race back after injury, securing 10th place in the 125’s and then went and
competed at the biggest beach race in the world, the 2020 Le Touquet Paris
Plage beach race in France. After starting at the back of over 200 riders due
to being a new competitor in the event, I finished 31st in the 125cc category, being
the 2nd British 125 rider.
“I’m currently racing a Husqvarna 125cc in the Acerbis 125 championship and
now have a Husqvarna 250F that I hope to train on during the winter months and
compete as many beach races across the UK and Europe as I can.
“I am very grateful of the support from NESC and hope to get some results in
the foreseeable future.”
NESC wishes Alfie the greatest success with his motocross career. We will be
following every step of the way!
