blu-3 is proud to be supporting Levi Saunders, 16, a budding motocross competitor from Maidstone in Kent.
Levi has competed nationally, in competitions including the Bridgestone British Masters, where he placed 14th out of 39 riders in the MXY2 category in 2022 – and where he will be competing again this year, and the Revo ACU British Motocross Championship 2023 where he came seventh out of 21 riders.
Levi says: “My uncle took me to watch motocross when I was 11 years old and I was instantly hooked! I knew this was what I wanted to do as I get big buzz when I’m riding. I would love to have a career in motocross and my dream is to be able to compete in America one day.”
Karl Saunders, Levi’s dad, comments: “Levi works incredibly hard – on and off the track – he trains every day on his bike, visits the gym several times a week and has a personal trainer. I’m unbelievably proud of his hard work and achievements and I would like to thank blu-3 for helping to get Levi where he is today.”
Danny Chaney, Chief Executive of blu-3, spotted Levi’s potential whilst at a motocross event with his son. He says: “It was clear Levi had great potential, but he didn’t have the right equipment to allow him to be more competitive. blu-3s support has enabled Levi to compete at a higher level and in prestigious motocross events, along with ensuring the upkeep of his bikes, other equipment and kit.
“It’s been a privilege to support a young, local talent like Levi, helping him towards his goal to become a professional motocross competitor. He works really hard doing what he loves and has already achieved a lot in his first six years in the sport. We look forward to seeing Levi’s successes to come.”
