GREG Fisher already has sights on more title glory after he won the first championship of his 23-year motocross career last weekend.

The 29-year-old rider from Ulverston has been competing in the Bridgestone British Masters Series clubman class this year, with a consistent run of performances seeing him take the title.

A strong showing on his Kawasaki 250F in the final round of the year in Wiltshire last weekend saw Fisher crowned class champion after an impressive 2018 campaign and he is eager to ensure this is not a one-off.

“We won five out of six rounds, the other round being a third overall,” said Fisher. “We were extremely consistent all season and never finished out of the top five.

“Races included Culham, on the River Thames, Wroxton in Banbury, Preston Docks, Hawkstone Park in Shrewsbury, Iron Worx in Middlesbrough, and Cusses Gorse last week in Salisbury where I won the championship.

“This has been my first national title in 23 years of racing and we are looking to defend the title again next season.”

Work and family responsibilities have seen Fisher curtail some of his motocross activities in recent years, with his career having previously seen him compete in this country’s top domestic championship, along with racing in Europe and the USA.

He works with his father Kevin at his roofing business and thanked him for all of the support he has given him, acknowledging it would not happen without him.

“I’ve been racing for all over the UK, Europe and America for 23 years,” said Fisher. “In 2009, I spent 12 months in California at MX Heaven USA, where I went to college and studied a number of subjects under a student visa.

“Since returning, due to the little money earning possibilities in the sport, I’ve concentrated on helping my dad build his roofing business, Cumbria Roofing Ulverston, where I’m now a director.

“I raced the Maxxis British Pro Championship for three seasons and since starting a family I have now shortened my racing programme.”

Fisher also thanked Horseman MX in Carlisle and Watson Boxing Fitness in Marton for their help and support throughout the year, along with British Masters championship organisers Colin and Julie Hambridge for putting on the series each year.
