Young riders to travel to UK for camp

Young riders from the Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club are set to travel to Britain for their second overseas training camp next year.

The Spark Training and Race Trip will include attendance at round one of the Cool Fab Racing Minibike Championships in Llandow, Wales, several race training days, cross-training, and visits to world-famous race circuits including Brands Hatch in West Kingsdown in Kent. The trip runs March 28 to April 6. The promising riders making the trip include Sheun Simmons, Norre Robinson, Jediah Cumbermack, Kymaree Pitt and Daente Burgess.

Aeziah Divine, who lives in England, will also join the group. They previously attended a training camp in California in April last year.

“We are thrilled to facilitate this group of top BMRA youth racers to further develop their skills and expand their experience into Europe,” said Kristin Divine, the mother of Aeziah, who is co-ordinating the trip.

“With a close link to professional riders and recognised advancement routes such as the official Road to MotoGP, the UK can offer a great opportunity for Bermudian racers who want to push the limits and get a taste of European racing.”

The youngsters will be holding a carwash and bake sale fundraiser at Rubis Paget Service Station next weekend, a movie screening at Speciality Cinema next month, and a golf tournament at Ocean View Golf Course in February to help them raise funds to support the development trip.
