CAS Honda rider Josh Coppins extended his winning streak to ten races today at Matchams Park for the eighth and final round of the 2005 Maxxis British Motocross Championship and accordingly sealed the MX1 title for the second year in succession.

The New Zealander rolled out a comprehensive winner in both of the 30 minute and 2 lap motos at the sunny and warm circuit just outside of Bournemouth. Coppins held a three point lead over fellow Honda riders James Noble and Paul Cooper (eight points) entering the event but with his main rivals taking third and second place respectively in the overall classification, the 28 year old finally re-confirmed the number one plate for 2006 by fourteen points. ‰ÛÏI was a little bit disappointed not to have taken pole position but Paul was on fire in qualification. I had good start for the motos; I was second in the first race and then had the lead out of the gate in the second. I have been trying to improve on my riding and I was happy with my first moto performance, I did not let-up and kept pushing. "I made a big mistake half-way through the second because the sun was quite low and getting all the jumps right was difficult but I regained my composure and pulled out a big lead to win by the end. Winning ten motos in a row is a record for me but when I came back from injury I wanted to win them all and I knew it would be possible but I did not have a good day at Lyng and thankfully since then it has been a gradual improvement. I want to thank the team, my mechanic and all the people who helped us take this Championship.‰Û
