A COUNTY teenager has enjoyed a memorable season in motocross having won every race in the national championships.

James Hanscomb, 14, built on an incredible debut season in the sport to clinch the British AMCA 85cc title.

And if that wasn’t enough, he went on to finish runner-up in the equally competitive Bridgestone BSMA series after an early season tussle with eventual winner Callum Beeken.

All of this has arrived on the back of a stunning debut season in the sport, where James represented his country in the ‘France Master Kids’ event against 25 other nations, where he eventually finished seventh.

The Bishop;s School youngster captured the attention of the world’s largest tyre manufacturer Bridgestone, who sponsored him this year.

“He is doing things on his bike that he could never do 12 months ago.," said James' dad George

"Naturally, we’re all very proud of James, but there has to be one main objective for 2017 - and that is for him to have fun.

“It can get quite serious when you’re riding for podiums and titles, but James is still so young and our perspective is for him to express himself and enjoy himself, which he certainly did this year.”

James, who is also sponsored by Apex Motocross in Worcester, came to the attention of Bridgestone at a BSMA Clubmans’ Championship event early in the year.

Bridgestone's sales and training development manager Mark Fereday said: “James is a little wonderkid.

"He has had a tremendous season and we are naturally thrilled for him.

"His achievements throughout 2016 have really caught the eye.

“I could tell what a talent he was from the first time I saw him competing.

"He’s very composed and assured on his bike, but fiercely determined to win, as well."
