Öhlins equipped rider Zach Osborne took the 2010 MX2 British Motocross Championship this weekend, as his Bike it Cosworth Yamaha team celebrated under torrential rain at Hawkstone Park.

The event was cancelled after flooding at the circuit but capped an amazing year for Zach and his Steve Dixon run squad after achieving an impressive Championship standing of fourth in the World MX2 series.

The Öhlins equipped Yamaha YZ250F machine handled the diverse terrains thrown at it during a hectic season of British and International racing including hard pack, mud and deep sand. Running Öhlins suspension throughout, the team rely on the 2010 production spec racing fork and rear shock utilizing the latest TTX technology, to offer maximum performance and consistency.

Team owner Steve Dixon has also become an Öhlins Centre with his renowned Dixon Racing Technology workshops. Steve commented, "We went back to Öhlins this year and we've pretty much stayed with the same settings all year to be honest. We've been thoroughly impressed with the all round ability of both the shock and forks over a massive variety of terrains without making any internal changes."

Öhlins produce a large range of suspension items for MX and Enduro machines from 50cc to Open class racing. The products include steering dampers, full forks, shocks, springs, oils and cartridge kits.

Chris Witter, Business Development Manager, Öhlins Racing UK commented, "Congratulations to Zach and his team on such a successful year in both British and World MX, fantastic! It's great to see Steve Dixon using this high-level set-up knowledge to pass onto his MX customers through his Öhlins Centre."
