A MOTOCROSS rider with big dreams has been chosen to compete in front of thousands of fans.

Despite being just 14 years old Ethan Sills, from Hereford, has been selected to ride for the Kawasaki Team Green competing in Arenacross Tour taking place in the coming months.

The six-round series will be competed over three weekends in indoor arenas in Belfast, Birmingham and Sheffield.

After taking up the sport at nine years old Sills has rapidly improved winning a host of races and has now won two national titles.

A great season in 2017 saw Sills win his SW85 class in the Bridgestone British Schoolboy National series (BSMA) and also his club championship with Cotswolds youth MX.

After training hard for the 2018 season Sills suffered a major set back just before the start of the season when his bikes were stolen.

Thankfully he had won the use of KTM 85 bike after winning the BSMA Nationals the year before.

Sills has moved up to a new class with faster and older competition and had a great year racing winning the BSMA National Series for a second consecutive year running.

However, his proudest moment to date has been winning the Georgie Ann Evans Memorial trophy - the winner was chosen by Richard and Ann Evans after watching him race at the Pontrilas round.

Sills has been busy preparing for the 2019 season training at CrossFit in Hereford and swimming at Halo.

He begins the Arenacross series on January 18 and 19 at the SSE Arena in Belfast before competing in Birmingham (February 1&2) and Sheffield (February 15&16).

Sills will be competing in the Team Green Supermini Cup during the Arenacross series.
