Hedley rides off with top honour
8:40am Sunday 3rd November 2013 in Sport
UP-and-coming motocross rider Hedley Longford won the Phil Goodwin Memorial MX meeting in Stratford.
The 10-year-old from Evesham, who attends Bowbrook House School, Peopleton, was competing for Coventry Junior Moto X Club at Bordon Hill.
Racing in the 65 class on a standard KTM MX bike over two days, Longford won five out of six races to collect the Phil Goodwin Memorial Shield and a first place trophy.
He was also second at the ORPA South Midlands Bank Holiday Series, third at the YSMA Supernationals at Milton Malsor, Northamptonshire, and first at meetings at Wroxton, Oxfordshire, and near Worcester.
The youngster began racing at the age of six and, with practice and determination, is thriving.
Longford hopes to ride next year’s Red Bull Nationals and is looking for sponsorship.
Anyone interested can call his father Paul on 07798-745514.
