SFOL: Wraxall Warm Up

The Wraxall Warm Up, the first race of the SFOL season held in the Wraxall woods, around forty riders attended this record-breaking SFOL event.

We arrived a little late to the hill and we were greeted by the sight of an ambulance. Compund tib & fib fracture. Ouch.

This is the resultant blood from said compound fracture. Get well soon!

Epic sunlight on the entrance the the woods. This is one of the knockout heats battling for a position in the final. Matt Elver up front, head to head with SFOL veteran, Jon Braund

the second crash of the day was also super burly, the grom in the red leathers had his right arm pulled out of his socket. Yes the crash is caught on film!

The pain didn't last long for him though, a few hits of morphine did the trick.

Back to the racing, the semi final was a tight finish one. Almost too close to call.

The final was more clear-cut however, Hendrix Mortimore stormed the win. Matt Elver, Jon Braund and Ethan K-D followed behind. Hendrix looks stoked to cross the line first!

Here are the top 4 enjoying their podium time!

Can't wait for the next SFOL event. If you want to get to the next one, keep up to date on their FACEBOOK page.

 

The Wraxall Video will be uploaded later tonight.
