Bradshaw's back!

23 March 2017

Go Back Former MX2 title contender Nev Bradshaw, who retired from pro racing in 2016, has been spotted tearing up the track on a 2002 CR250 as he prepares for the opening round of the ACU British Two-stroke Championship at Canada Heights on April 30.

Im going to do the full ACU series on the Honda, he said, but Im just looking to enjoy myself racing with Lewis Gregory and those boys again its not like Im buying a new Husqvarna or KTM to go try and win it. Im just there because I still enjoy racing and I know its at good tracks.

For sure I want to win but I know the possibility is slim when youre racing against bikes that have just been developed on something thats 15 years old.

"Im still going to give it a go and from when the gate drops to the chequered flag Ill be giving 100 per cent which is something I really miss in my life at the minute that feeling of finishing a moto and being content with yourself.

Nev, who runs his own 272 Race School, was a frustrated spectator at the opening round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship at Culham.

It was tough watching and I really struggled, he added. I spent the whole of the next week pretty bummed on it but its just something Ive got to accept.

We cant race motorbikes forever unfortunately and Ive started a new chapter in my life helping the boys out, bringing them on and trying to help them have good careers like I did. Its just going to take a bit of time to accept it and Im lucky that I can still do this sort of thing just to stay happy."
