The Fourth Extreme Enduro at Foxborough Quarry in Sible Hedingham went ahead despite heavy rain.

The four classes were dispatched at 15 seconds intervals running to their machines to start two hours nonstop of mayhem, chaos and give entertainment to the 300 spectators.

In was two times winner of the event, Charlie Frost from Bath, who was the fastest runner to the bikes and was first off, closely followed by Ben Wibberley.

At the end of the first lap it was Wibberley leading the event, with Frost a fair way behind in second.

Wibberley negotiated the table top with ease, while Frost dropped his machine at the top and lost precious seconds. Following behind these two were Rob Warner and local rider Stevie Roper.

As the two hour session progressed, Wibberley got stuck on the wet and muddy telegraph poles which let Frost catch up and he took advantage to pass him.

From then on there was no holding him back, as he completed a lap every 10 minutes to take his third title on 12 laps with Wibberley second on 11 laps.

Warner was third, also on 11 laps, Roper fourth on nine laps, with Jack Barwick in fifth.

In the Expert Class local rider Ryan McDonnell was very well placed but as the time went by it was Jason Pearce who took control and won, completing seven laps with Carl Venter second on six laps, five minutes ahead of third-placed Barney Thurgood. McDonnell was fourth on five laps, wuth Josh Kirby fifth and Stephen Lander sixth.

In the Clubman Class local rider James Barker took the early lead also jumping off the see-saw but he was overhauled by Stuart Bridges to take the win by 20 seconds after six laps, with Barker second.

The next three riders finished on five laps with Will Packer taking third, Alfie Coles fourth and Dan Hunt fifth.

In the Trial Class veteran Paul Nash took the win, his second in four events, completing five laps.

There was a hard-fought battle for second place with super veteran Jason Green just pipping Jez Moss by 11 seconds.
