A brilliant, action-packed official review of the season, with some great individual performances and a fierce rivalry that shaped the top four placings! ‘99 World 250 Champion Frederic Bolley (Honda) and his fellow Frenchman Mickael Pichon (Suzuki) were simply mesmerising all-season-long. Bolley may have had a shaky start but he is a rider of many year’s experience and with injury and pressure gradually taking its toll on Pichon, the leaderboard was never cast in stone. Not far behind them was another great battle, between German rider Pit Beirer (Kawasaki) and the Suzuki-mounted Kiwi Josh ‘Lizard’ Coppins. Coppins’ solid consistency was this year to bring him his best ever results.
And then there was the young Italian Claudio Federici (Yamaha) showing fine form in his 250 debut. But he was attempting to outgun Britain’s shining star, Ulsterman Gordon ‘Crockstar’ Crockard (Honda) and here was a rider who gave British fans plenty to be proud of! But these are just the guys who dominated the leaderboard - the 250 class is all about packed fields, crashes galore, madness and mayhem and this is where you’ll find it in bucketloads. The 2000 250 World mx was a scorcher - don’t miss it!
