DMR Dirt Wars Final Round

October 4, 2015

After 5 rounds of Dirt jump madness it was time to journey to the NEC in Birmingham For the series final and it was all to play for. The course was set up as a huge roll in with an Mx style kicker to dirt landing for the first then another kicker to landing with a quarterpipe after with dirt landings either side.

Sam Reynolds did an amazing job of re-jigging the course build along with DMR’s Olly Wilkins and Dirt Wars UK owner Cliff Barbeary. 

On the Friday all the riders took to the course for practice and a few of the the Dirt Wars riders got to ride with some of the big euro riders who were over for the Sam Pilgrim Invitational on the Sunday.

Saturday arrived and the Dirt wars UK Riders we’re all ready to ride and see who would win the final round and take the overall series win. As we had time slots to stick to we decided to run on a slightly different format to the normal 3 run qualies and 3 run finals with each rider getting 3 runs then the top 5 from the 3 runs went through to a super final of one run to see if they could better their scores. We started off as always with the Open Class riders and a few were looking a tad nervous.

Harry Campbell was set to shut the comp down with his huge front flips over the first but when pulling them he couldn’t quite set him self up for the second jump until his last run. After last years huge crash off the top of the 30ft scaffold drop Darren Estall got through practice and to the main event where he showed even though he’s the oldest rider in the Open Class he still has what it takes to shut down the young guns. 

Jack Ambler is like a young Danny Pace and built like a machine, this kid has been smashing away at the open scene for the last 2 years (2nd overall last year) and he was out this weekend to win the day and the overall series, Huge Tucks, 3 bars and superman’s all day long.

The Super final went ahead and Freddy Pullman was set to take the overall win with his last run but didn’t manage to hold on to the bike on the second jump and Freddy’s hopes of overall title were crushed as Daryl brown took the Round 6 win and overall title.
