CCM Racing Start Season With Two Titles

Rock Oil supported Buildbase CCM Racing have started the 2011 season with two British Titles. Set in the Liverpool Echo Arena on Saturday night, the final round of the British Open Supercross Championship was dominated by the Buildbase CCM duo of Tom Church and Stephen Sword.

The two team mates cemented their places in both finals with heat wins and when the gate dropped for the Open final, Stephen  took the holeshot and built up a healthy lead, meanwhile Tom gated badly exiting the first corner around mid pack but put in a blinding first lap making his way up to fourth. Slowly reeling in Alex Snow and moving up to second , one lap from the flag Tom made a mistake and just managed to finish the race in third place, enough for him to take the British Open Supercross Championship  with Stephen taking the race win.

Buildbase CCM Racings’ sporting director Dave Thorpe commented “ the team came here to build on winter training in preparation for the British Maxxis opening round. Taking the win and the titles will increase the riders’ confidence.  As you can see from tonight’s performance both riders have prepared well and the whole team is looking forward to the season opener on March 6th"
