Hawke’s Bay Speedway Club officials were yesterday toasting the crowning of a second consecutive national champion in less than 24 hours.
A day after Jason Long won the New Zealand Superstock Championship in Christchurch Bradley Wilson-Dean won a third consecutive New Zealand Solobike Championship title at Rosebank Park in Auckland on Sunday. Ironically Wilson-Dean, 24, and Long, 26, are both products of the Hawke’s Bay Motorcycle Club.
“I remember our motocross days. I never got to race Jason because he was older than me … now he is doing his stuff on four wheels and I’m still doing it on two,” Wilson-Dean remarked.
