Cub Cadet is proud of one of its dealer’s successes at Mallory Park – with 2 EMRA Championship wins in the 126-450cc Class and Open 500cc Class aboard a Cub Cadet branded GP bike. The bike will be on display on the Cub Cadet stand at Saltex from 2nd - 3rd November.

George Bedford, owner of Cub Cadet dealership - Tutbury Garden Machinery based near Burton-On-Trent - used to ride in the 125cc British Championships – his last outing being in 1997.

Recently George, after helping a friend get ready for his second year of racing, got the urge to get back out racing and now finds himself with 2 EMRA Championship wins this season.

The bike he rides is a 5-year-old Honda NSF 250 R Moto 3 GP bike which George sprayed in Cub Cadet yellow complete with Cub Cadet logo. Mallory Park is about high corner speed and late braking which this bike is built for. The bike takes around 30 hours to prepare for one meeting as races are won in the garage and not on the track. The slick tyres last for only one meeting and each meeting – without crash or engine issues costs around £800- £1000.

George has had a couple of minor crashes this year, scrapping a £500 helmet in one race, with a bad headache for a few days, and getting hit on the start line from behind on another race as his clutch broke when the lights went green. He was very lucky not to have ended up on a stretcher.

As George says “I’m now 52 years old and should know better but bikes have always been my passion and I’m enjoying it while I can. I’m hoping to do the NG racing championship next year – something to aim for”

“George is dedicated in everything he does, he has been a very successful Cub Cadet dealer for 13 years and we are proud of all his achievements both within his business and on the track” said Edward Staniland, Area Sales Manager for Cub Cadet
