Video: Richardson pips Walker to victory at Valleys Xtreme

Video highlights from Jonathan Richardson’s Valleys Xtreme Enduro win ahead of Jonny Walker and Paul Bolton.

 

Opening a packed month of Extreme Enduro competition in January, the Valley’s Xtreme proved a tough test for riders and saw Jonathan Richardson take major scalp or two beating Jonny Walker and Paul Bolton to victory. 

Walker made his return to racing at the Valleys Xtreme in Wales and took the Saturday prologue comfortably before Sunday’s main race proved a tough wake-up for the Red Bull KTM rider on the road to recovery after his Megawatt crash in 2018.

That is to take nothing away from Jonathan Richardson who headed the field round a gruelling Welsh course at Walters Arena. Jonathan pulled clear close the finish on the toughest hill climbs which saw Walker and Paul Bolton team up to pull bikes out the summit in front of the crowd.
