Reece Wilson is one of the new generation of riders who has made his way to the sharp end of racing and is now battling it out with the best. Scoring himself a 4th position in Fort William 2018. 

This weekend proved to be much more trying. With a great qualifying run in the bag, disaster struck in his race run when Reece snapped his chain out of the gate in finals, ultimately leading to a crash.

This video, brought to you by Max Rendall at, gives us an insight into the highs and lows of racing, shot in a fly on the wall documentary style. Well worth spending 16 minutes of your day on this one.

Maybe just blink out the scooter bits – probably ironic usage anyway.
