September 25th, 2020.

James Bevan from Haverfordwest flew the Welsh flag with pride at last Sunday’s Nora-MX 2020 championship, when he collected a hard-fought first Pro class win.

The weekend started well for the 22-year-old when he posted a fastest qualifying time of 02:10.985, but he faced adversity in the opening Pro moto when mechanical problems cut his race short. He fared better in the second race with an 8th placing, and was clearly delighted when that relentless work and determination paid off in the final Pro race of the day, to take the win.

Over to James; “From the minute we got to the track on Saturday I had a good feeling about the place. Then to go out in practice and post the fastest lap by two seconds was a good boost of confidence for me. I didn’t get the best of starts in race one and was running fifth when mechanical issues forced me to retire. In race 2, I again had heavy contact off the start which put me last into the corner, however I fought my way through up to eighth, posting the fastest lap of the race whilst doing so but run out of time to make it any further.

In the third race I managed to get second into the corner and was pressing George Day hard for the lead. I managed to make a pass on the second lap and put my head down to try and break away. On the fourth lap, I posted the fastest lap by over a second which gave me just enough of an edge over George and I held that gap until the flag.

It felt really good getting that first Pro win as I’ve been working towards it for years now but, with a few setbacks, I just was never able to crack that top spot. I would like to thank everyone who’s helped me get to where I am.”
