TALENTED youngster Zak Greene celebrated another podium placing as Derby BMX visited Midlands rivals Birmingham for the latest rounds of the national series.


Derby were looking to maintain their strong start to the season – they are currently fourth overall – and sent 35 riders to compete in rounds four and five at Perry Park.

Zak Greene showed promise in his category.

Zak Greene showed promise in his category.

And after two podium finishes in the previous rounds of the competition, expectation was high for Greene in the Six-and-Under class.

He didn’t disappoint. He consistently made his way through the moto rounds, gaining top four positions and qualifying for the A final.

 In the final, he turned on the speed to finish third overall before following this with a fourth place finish in round five of the competition.

Team-mate Myles Wildbore also impressed with a seventh place finish in round four and an eighth finish in round five.

Riley Hampson, in the seven-and-under category, had to settle for fourth place in round four but bettered this in round five with second place.

Jack Gretton made his first national A final and finished a respectable seventh overall, while Jay Bovill and Bradley Vickery represented Derby in the final of round four with Bovill winning the final comfortably.

Vickery, meanwhile, finished fifth in round four.

Bovill finished second the following day but retains his place at the top of the overall standings.

It was a disappointing day for Serenity Ralph in the 9-10 girls’ class as nerves got the better of her in the final.

Ralph eased through the qualifiers but she was last out of the gate in the final .

However, she powered through to finish fourth before a disastrous performance in round five, in which she lost her balance and crashed out, saw Ralph take eighth place overall.

Ralph remains fourth in the national standings.

In the 12s class, Tyrell Cooper-Nelson had to pull out of round four following a tangle with another rider. He did better the following day with second overall

Brothers Owen and Cameron Poulter did Derby proud in the 13s class. Cameron was second in the final of round four while Owen finished eighth.

However, things didn’t quite go to plan the following day when Cameron could only manage eighth place after a poor gate meant he was forced to play catch-up for most of the race.

National champion Robert Jesson was back on form in the 15s class after his fall in the previous round at Doncaster.

Jesson won the moto rounds but had to settle for second place in the A final behind Cheshire Ghostriders’ Jack Critchlow. He did better in round five, though, winning the final and taking over top spot.

Jordan Perry made it to the semi-final of the elite class.
