Locals for Birmingham

answer (1)

Local lads MVR-D Husqvarna’s Pro Lites rider Chris Povey, and battling SuperMini step-brothers Cory Aldridge and Charlie Keight are all from Bromsgrove, are looking to rip it up this weekend in front of a home crowd!

Twenty-three-year-old Povey was drafted into the Husquvarna-backed team just three days before the opening round of the 2017 Arenacross Tour. He rocked up to Manchester on 7th January not knowing quite what to expect but soon got into the swing of things. “It was a massive learning curve for me,” said Povey. “I’ve never ridden indoor motocross before but the support from my team has made it easier, they provide the tools and I just go out and do the job!”

By day Povey buys and sells used cars, but at the weekend he turns into a full-on AX star and he says he’s having the time of his life. He’s featured in the top eight of the four races held so far and reckons he’s going all out to get on the podium at Birmingham this weekend to impress his family and friends. The only downside of a podium for him is that he’s got a thing about heights and the podium, which is one of the Freestyle ramps, is pretty high.

Twelve-year-old Cory and 11-year-old Charlie last rode the full series two years ago in the 65cc class, but this year are contesting the bigger 85cc category. According to their parents, they are highly competitive and buzzing about racing in the same class at Arenacross. Absolutely everything they do turns into sibling rivalry, so it’s a far bet they’ll be going flat out to beat each other this weekend.
