Brett Wheeler signed for Charge for 2012, after a successful career in Moto X Brett is now trying his skills at MTB dirt Jump. Just coming back after a broken ankle he’s taking it easy getting the bike dialed and his fitness back. He will be competing in the Dirt Wars Series and many more events this year.
Charge clothing is proud to be supporting Bradley Pocock for another year, Brad is certainly one of the UK’s fastest and most stylish young riders. He is training in California at the moment getting the bikes dialed and his fitness up to scratch.
His career kicked off in 2008 and he got 2nd overall at the elite youth cup big wheels, and a 5th in the junior world mini cup. In 2009 he broke his leg, in 2010 he was leading all the championships, BYMX, red bull and MXY2, but sadly broke his leg again, and 2011 was a repeat! Bradley is confident for 2012 with his new team, bike and a fresh start with MVR-D Honda and will race the MX2 Maxxis, Redbull Pro nationals, the Under 21s and some European EMX2 rounds.
Brad always rides with his heart and gives 110%, so we hope this year he has more luck and finishes the season on a high.
Ben Le Cornu will be representing Charge again for 2012, here is a little bit about our rhino from the Channel Islands..
My name is Ben Le Cornu, I live in Jersey in the Channel Islands, I am 20 years old, I have been riding since I was 5 and I compete in Jersey, Guernsey and France.
In 2011 I competed mainly in the Brittany Regional Championship in France which is a 10 round series whilst also racing in the Jersey championship although missing some rounds due to being away. My season started off well in France qualifying within the top 15 at all races, I managed to achieve top 15 placings in the races whilst also achieving some top 10 placings. In the 7th round, I unfortunately over cleared a jump and broke my ankle which unfortunately ended my season in France.
In Jersey, i managed to attend 5 of the 10 rounds of the championship placing in the top 3 most events although I feel I could have placed higher had I not broken my ankle and lost fitness. I then went on to race the Jersey 2day Motocross event where riders come from France, England and the Channel Islands. I rode the adult MX2 class at this event event battling for the win in all races with a French rival and a Jersey rival. Unfortunately I came out in 2nd place by a small amount of points.
In 2012 I will be concentrating on trying to win the Jersey championship as I did in 2010 and also racing in events across France and England. I will be hoping to make it into the top 10 at all the events I enter overseas.
Many thanks to my parents, my local sponsors, Charge Clothing and Danger UK for what I achieved in 2011 and I am hoping 2012 will bring me much more success.
