Banks Browne postpones his racing return

“The priority for both me and the team is the British championship, and with the first meeting being only a couple of weeks away, it would be stupid to risk further injury when there is a job to be done. I was disappointed not to be able to race on Saturday, but it was the right decision for sure.”




Despite being desperate to return to racing action, Buildbase Honda rider Elliott Banks Browne decided to postpone his competitive comeback and consequently sat out the final round of the Arenacross UK series at Wembley Arena, London last Saturday night.

Red Bull athlete Banks Browne, who recently suffered a wrist injury that kept him sidelined for two weeks, rode the initial sessions on Saturday morning, but unfortunately felt some further discomfort in his left wrist. After consultation with team principle and triple MX World champion David Thorpe and with the first round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship only two weeks away, it was decided that Elliott should take no further part in last Saturday’s event.

Whilst this was a difficult and disappointing decision for all concerned, it was deemed to be the best in terms of Banks Browne ultimate pursuit this season, which is for the twenty-four year old to add a third national title to his name.

Elliott is expected to be able to complete further testing and training ahead of the opening outdoor encounter at Landrake, Devon on Sunday 16th March.
