Lots of news since last post on the group so a bit of catching up for everyone.
Karl went to Donnington fired up and raring to go. In practice he got side swiped by another rider and ended up with a fractured wrist and declared not race fit.
From then it was 14 days to Assen and his goal to ride was paramount. Jon worked hard on his race fitness to maintain his condition whilst he had treatment on the fracture.
Karl was in Assen this last weekend and completed the first race finishing in 18th, brilliant 14 days after a fracture. His wrist didn’t quite have the stamina for two races in one day on the circuit that required it to be in constant use, thus he pulled up in race two.
With the support of his PR Quattro Plant Kawasaki team he worked hard to provide feedback on the bike performance so that tweaks can be made for Silverstone.
Back with Jon he is now on track for Silverstone this weekend. Running round Rother Valley it’s game on for Team Evo.
On the 16th Sept the British Natural Bodybuilding Finals were held in Manchester. The biggest Natural competition ever in the UK with 120 competitors the standard was awesome.
Jon made his finals judging debut and Rachael hosted the show. More importantly Team Evo members competed fast months of hard work.
Kelly Freeman took second place in the Ladies Physique, this means she is now the top amateur ladies physique competitor in the UK BNBF as the winner was awarded her pro card. Invited to the Worlds Kelly has opted for the NABBA Universe a little closer to home and she also has the NPA British Finals at the end of October so watch this space.
Chris Richards, in his first year, put on an awesome display in the Novice Lightweight. After a great year of training and dieting hard he finished 5th in Britain – next year holds great promise for this little power house.
Emma Grzona competed in the ladies figure and strutted her stuff against some exceptional competition. Leaner than the qualifiers she has great shape and improves year on year. In her own individual style she strutted to 5th, great result.
In the over 60s, John Hodgson from Rotherham took 4th, 20 years after last competing Jon showed he still has it. Years of dedication to his training, cycling and healthy living paid off.
Well done to everyone who took part in the final and the qualifiers this year. Awesome performances and onward and upward.
Gemma Moore competed UKBFF Bikini in Leeds. After coming to the BNBF club then for some posing advice she pzazzed her way to a great 6 th place out of 14 top class girls. Gemma has trained really hard for this, created a great package, put the time in with the prep and we were honoured to be able to help her hit that stage in style,
Soon we have Emma Dodds competing in the NPA Mike Williams Classic, her first show.
Then Mick, Mirek (hope this is right), Russ and Rob in the Doncaster Open
More shows to follow but that’s enough for now.
Joins still helping our stuntman friends prepare for their various filming challenges. Good luck to Gary and Ash in their latest ventures.
Rachael jets off on Friday for her first Pro show in two years at the Drug Free Athletes Coalition Universe in New Jersey. In a new class it’s a learning process all over again.
Going to make this a monthly update. If you have any news we should get out to everyone let’s us know in the gym or on here.
Team Evo are Go.
