Oli Sansom had a challenging time in the second round of the EMX Quadcross European Championship in Holland earlier this month.

The track at the Heerde circuit featured deep Dutch sand, and a full field of very fast riders. Unfortunately, Sansom suffered an early set back when his chain de-railed in the qualifying heat. This resulted in a back row start in both motos, which proved to be a tough test for the West Midlands rider. He finished in 20th and 14th, bagging a few valuable championship points in the process.

“I had two terrible starts but managed to pull off finishes in a field of 32 elite riders,” said Sansom. “It’s really not where I wanted to be but at least I picked up a few points ahead of round 3.

“To be honest I’m still loving my racing and I know I can run up front but it all has to click into place. Losing my sister Mel has taken its toll on my mental health and I’ve not been in the right frame of mind, however, I know she would want me to do my best and I know what I need to do to get back to where I need to be.

“I need to keep focused and continuing my training. A shout out to Aston ABC, John Homer and Broderick Murphy for getting me back to great physical fitness. Huge thanks also to Matty Jones on the spanners, Marc de Vries for his support, Becky Rouse Tony Dibley, Richard Vaughan, my family, friends and all my sponsors for making it happen. I’m sure I’ll have my mojo back pretty soon!”

Next up in the EMX Quadcross European Championship, is round 3 over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of June at Kramolin, Czech Republic.
