March 8, 2010 9:15am
With final preparations for the 2010 MX1 World Championship in full swing, Steve Ramon traveled to Hawkstone Park in the UK this weekend to take part in the highly regarded international motocross event. Having started the 2010 season strong Ramon was determined to keep the momentum going, and that is exactly what he did.

Heat 1 got underway under perfect blue skies, and as the gate dropped Ramon powered his Rockstar Teka Suzuki to the first turn, emerging in 3rd position and hot on the wheel of De Reuver. Whilst Tanel Leok got out front, both Ramon and De Reuver battled it out lap after lap. Ramon took the advantage from De Reuver, and held it almost to the end, but De Reuver just got the upper hand with a couple of laps remaining putting Ramon in a well raced 3rd position as they crossed the line.

Heat 2 would see another good start by Ramon, as he once again emerged from the first turn in 3rd position. In true Ramon style the flying Belgian glided his way over the rough circuit and into the lead within a handful of laps. Once out front the Bomb just kept it clean and lead to the end, crossing the line to take both the heat win and the overall win for the day.

“I am happy to take the overall win today. In the first moto I battled again with arm pump, and just couldn’t ride as fast as I wanted. The second moto I was more relaxed and felt strong. I have a few things to work on now before Bulgaria, I know I can go faster, and I am just gonna get out and practice a few things this coming week to try and get to the point I am satisfied with.” Commented Ramon.
