Team USA dominated the 2018 Vets MXDN Team races at the tenth annual edition of this classic vintage motocross event. Mike Brown won four of the Twin Shock Team races and backed this up with two moto wins in the EVO races. Kurt Nicoll riding for Team England delighted the patriotic fans who lined the 1700 metre circuit with a moto win and backed this up with a second and third in the EVO races. Billy MacKenzie won the final moto.
With two motos each day in both classes, the strong USA squad took an early advantage by packing the three score-counting riders into the top six places in every moto while past winners Germany kept in touch in the Twin Shock class before fading on day two. The British team was always in contention in the EVO races with Nicoll posting top three spots except for a charge from last to eleventh in the third moto.
in its 10th year, the popular vintage race was contested by 14 twin-shock teams and 13 EVO class teams. The classes are open to bikes manufactured up to 1996. This year’s large crowd of knowledgeable and passionate fans saw the veterans put on a superb display of riding on the fast and bumpy Farleigh Castle track. Despite the age of the machinery and the riders, the racing was action-packed with former National Champions from a number of different countries fighting for the win. Rick Johnson was the unofficial Grand Marshall and spent his weekend signing autographs and meeting old friends.
