Ben Milward and the SR75 Suzuki team were in action over the weekend at Round 6 of the UK EVO MX at Marshfield MX. Ben rode the SR75 Suzuki RM125 Special for the first time, putting in an outstanding performance to take 3 podium finishes and 2nd overall on the day. Below is the full report from Ben:
Been a while since I had rode a 125 so took a lap of so to settle into it… forgot how fun much the Rm 125 can be.
Solid start come out of the first turn in second place on an uphill start in an open class field, dropped down hill to the second turn tucked inside the leaded and come out of the turn leading until horsepower got the better of me and a bigger bike out dragged me up the hill. But from then on rode a smooth consistent race for a solid 2nd overall.
Not the best of starts, come out the turn in the top 5. But had to work hard all race for 3rd overall but closed 2nd place up on the later stages of the race with some of my faster lap laid down.
Start was a little better running in the top 3 from the get go, but 2nd place pulled a little gap early on. Which again I came on strong as the race went on and closed him up in the final stages with a few bikes between us over the line. Finishing another consistent 3rd
Consistency paid off for 2nd overall on the day.
Had so much fun and buzzing to race it again soon…
