Team Green Kawasaki UK - UK Arenacross round 5 race report
Boyesen Backed UK based Team Green Youth Riders Gaining Momentum.
After riding three rounds as the sole representative for Team Green Jed Etchells was joined by Lewis Hall for round five of the UK Arenacross tour this past weekend at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle and the pair of them both bagged podiums.

  Jed, who finished third in the big wheeled class last time out in Birmingham, was charged up at Newcastle. After starting outside the top three he worked his way up to second and put some real sustained pressure on series leader Harry Kimber right to the flag but just couldn't get it done, but it was by far his best Arenacross performance to date.

  Lewis also rode a blinder with all things considered. Still in some discomfort from his big crash in Belfast with bruised ribs and ligament damage he rode a smart and controlled race on his return to methodically work his way up to second by the drop of the flag to grab his first podium of 2015. Both of the lads were encouraged by Dylan Woodcock who was on hand watching and unfortunately will sit out the remainder of the series while his collarbone heals after surgery ready for the outdoor motocross season ahead.

  Jeff Perrett - Team Manager “I'm about as happy as you can get with second places. The only way they'd be better would be if they were to wrap up a championship. It's been a tough start to our year, but you have to take that on the chin because that's racing sometimes and we've had such a good run since we've brought Team Green back to the track. I was really impressed with Jed tonight. He was a different animal all together. He looked confident, smooth and most importantly like he had more self belief. With a little more aggression I think he could've passed Harry and maybe gone on for the win. It will give him confidence that he caught him up like that. It was the best I've seen him ride since he's been on the team when you put everything into context. Lewis was superb too. He rode smart and calculated and that's a good sign looking forward. Lew is just so aggressive and always wants to twist that throttle as hard as he can, but sometimes that costs him. This time out he used his head and just clicked off the laps and picked riders off where he knew he was faster, which was through the whoops. Second is great comeback ride for him, especially as he's far from 100%. I'm really looking forward to Glasgow to see if they can both build on their performances.”
