Round four of the G H Motorcycles/Husqvarna/ACU Eastern Solo Enduro Championship takes place next Sunday (June 18th), at Little Hadham Herts, organised by the Sudbury Motor Cycle Club.

It is expected to the more thrills, spills, surprises and drama similar to the first three rounds.

It looks like Jason Morland is on his way to win the Championship Class.

He has 53 points 19 points advantage over Tim Rose, 20 points over Matt Pope and 26 points over Craig Roper.

His main rival winner of three ACU Eastern Enduro Championship titles, Jamie Roper, is out of the series due to an injury sustained in round two. There is a strong battle in the Expert Class between Kevin Palmer on 52 points and Myles Saunders on 45 points, while round three winner Ryan McDonnell has 33 points and Jack Berry 29 points.

Michael Ridge has a 15-point advantage over Gavin Hockey in the Expert Veteran Class. Behind these two are Mark Green and Paul Spurgeon with 27 and 28 points deficit.

There is a ding-dong battle in the Clubman Class with James Barker of 55 points and Lee Monger on 51 points and this will continue until the last round.

What a great contest it has been this year for Dean Curry in the Clubman Veteran Class, he recorded his first ever win in his riding career at round two and followed that up with another win at the last round.

Before the start of the main event there will be another Hare and Hounds race for 12-16 year olds and this time Joe Phillips who rode his first Adult Enduro at round three will be competing in this event.

Although some riders have a good points lead in their various classes, a lot can change over the next three rounds with machine failure or possibly an injury, putting them out of the top 15 if they accumulate no points.

Fifteen-year-old Joe cannot ride in the main event as it is on a time card format as any 15-year-old when riding in an Adult event must be visible at all times to the marshalls around the course, and this is not possible for a time card event.

It will be interesting to see how he gets on against 14-year-old Jake Roper who won the race last time.
