On top of this, 12-year-old Brad finished second in a team event against other clubs throughout the UK, and finally he entered into the British Master Kids competition which took place in Suffolk in August.

Over three fierce days of competiton, he was up against 80 other riders from around the UK and exceeded all expectations by taking a top-20 place.

Brad’s mum Jo Nolan said: “Brad always seems to amaze us, and his passion for the sport speak volumes – he just eats, sleeps and drinks motocross!”

Brad is now in close season, where he will embark on his winter training schedule at Sportspace Hemel Hempstead as part of the centre’s Aspiring Athlete Scheme.

Jo added: “Brad would also like to thank his headteacher and sports teachers at Longdean School, Allease Aylesbury (motocross finance), Danny Dirtbike for making him look good on the track, Moore’s Motorcycles of Hemel Hempstead, the Godfather from Hi-Tech Express, CNRT same day couriers, Malcolm Rathmell Sport and Forkshrink for all their donations and commitment to helping Brad live the dream.

“As a family we honestly wouldn’t be able to do it without all the support from sponsors, friends and family.”
