FREESTYLE BREAK IN - 05/09/2014
Last night (04/09/14) Freestyle was broken into. A stolen ford transit was driven across our fields, damaging electric fencing and up through the yard. Having crow-barred the door open they proceeded to load the brand new Husqvarna bikes into the stolen vehicle.
On hearing the alarms we were alerted to a disturbance and on discovering what was going on we proceeeded to call the police. Having been discovered they quickly scarpered back the way they came.
Colin then get into his car and followed them up Wadhurst road to take note of the license plate which helped the police then catch them on cameras and find out their where abouts. On realising they werent going to get away they abandoned the vehicle with bikes inside and escaped into another stolen car.
Hopefully with prints and DNA on the bikes and van we will be able to apprehend and prosecute the suspects.
Thanks to all who shared around the facebook status and a well done to Sussex Police for their quick action.
Race Report: Rounds 7 & 8 BEC at Cwmythig Hill - 02/09/2014
BEC- Rhayader, Freestyles Joe Wootton becomes British Champion
With heavy rain over night into Friday, all day Friday and most of Saturday at Cwmythig Hill this was going to be a tough enduro.
The club had obviously worked hard for sometime to put this event on, there was a lap of 40 miles around Parc Fermme, a MX test and a long enduro test at Saints Well.
This has to stand out as the best event so far this season.
Joe rode extremely well all weekend putting in some world class times. Joe has won every round of the BEC so far and winning both days this weekend has ensured he has clinched the title of British Expert Champion.
This week Joe travels to Czech Republic to compete in his first European round as part of the Welsh team. We then wait until the 4th & 5th October for the last two rounds of the British Sprint Championship, with the last round of the BEC to be on the 16th November.
We would like to thank all of our sponsors as usual and to all who helped put together the event.

Freestyles newest member of the team, Mitchell Lewis will be our sponsored motocross rider for the remaining 2014 and coming 2015 season.
The 16 year old Mitch has been riding motocross bikes since his early years and started racing age 7. The passion started out as a hobby for him and his father but has developed into a love of competative racing.
With good placings in MX Nationals and Maxxis, as well as dabbling in Enduro earlier this year he has proved himself to be an all round talented rider. Currently lying second in this years MX National he is showing great dedication and potential and we hope to help him up further the rankings with all the support and guidance the Freestyle team offers all its riders.
This weekend he will be competing at Preston Docks for the MX Nationals and we wish him all the best of luck!

Huge thanks to everyone who came along or helped at our Husqvarna Test Day yesterday in Wales!
The day was a huge success, everyone had a great time and I hope we managed to get everyone a go on the bikes they fancied.
The rain held off nicely for the most part (a few scattered showers here and there but nobody got too wet) and conditions on the course were perfect. Joe Wootton even made an appearance at the end of the day to show everyone how it was done and have a practise.
Thanks again to everyone and we hope to see you in the shop soon!

Joe Wootton in WOR in Carno, Mid Wales - 12/08/2014
Conditions were very wet and slippy on Sunday 10th August at Carno, Mid Wales for our Welsh rider Joe Wootton.
We decided a Michelin Comp three was the tyre to use, although not as good as a Comp six. Joe decided not to take the lead from the off as the course was very fast and rocky. The lap was approx 20 minutes, Joe then entered the lead after the first lap and never looked back from there, taking the win by over 5 minutes lead to finish.
Thanks again to all of our sponsors for you continued support. Yet another great weekend for Freestyle.
