Knowle’s Signature Racing BMX team enjoyed fast and exciting action at Chesterfield last weekend on their downhill track.

Ethan Wallace had three fifth places in his qualifying motos but was forced off the track in his final following a battle down the first straight resulting in a disqualification and Ethan being awarded seventh.

His sister Mia had a third and two fourths in her qualifying motos and took fifth place in the A final.

Dad Ian had a second, first, third followed by a very close A final with a tough battle for the second place spot which Ian lost out to fellow Vet Sheldon Hall after a terrific swoop into one of the Berms leaving Ian to settle for third.

After four rounds of the Midlands Series this now leaves Mia as Midlands No4, Ethan No 7 and Ian just hanging on to the top spot by only 10 points with four rounds to go.

The next round takes place at Derby on June 23 which is also an inter regional event with East Anglia.
