Severn Valley Schoolboy Scramble Club under their new committee racing under the BSMA banner were at Brookthorpe MX Park for the popular and well known All British two day mx meeting on Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th May. The team did a superb job with the track from the week after the GT Cup. The committee put on some fantastic evening entertainment with the 2013 All British Rodeo Bull Championship and what can I say Tim Truman made a good effort well for the couple of seconds he was on the bull, but the winners were Matthew Smith (Male All British Rodeo Champion), Lynne Collins (Female All British Rodeo Champion) and Billy Duke (Child All British Rodeo Champion).
There was a great atmosphere in the marquee on the Saturday night where the team had put on a disco and a bar for everyone to socialise and enjoying themselves after a hard days racing, but it was the Sunday presentation everyone was looking forward to see the trophies which were 26 inches tall for first place.
