Poplar ace bounces back from injury
Poplar motorbike star Sam Cox secured an excellent fourth place in the British Superbike Triumph Challenge Series after the final race in front of a packed Brands Hatch.
The final race of the season proved to be a battle of control between the bike and the circuit as the wet weather made choice of tyres a difficult one.
Settling into a cautious rhythm proved to be the right choice for Cox who finished sixth to hold on to his fourth spot in the championship.
So ended an amazing season for the East London rider, including five wins and 11 podiums from 18 races, with three lap records, as well as a broken collarbone that may have cost him the championship.
“I had hopes of winning the championship as my times have been fast enough at different circuits,” said Cox.
“But the difficulty of racing with a broken collarbone sustained in August has made it impossible.
“Next year I’ve made plans to go up a level and compete in another British premier class, either Supersport or Stock 1000.”
