2014 - Year in Review
Lewis had a hugely successful 2014, with a season learning the extra power of the 250cc bike, he had one of the best ever!
He took part in the British Youth Championship, and his hard work and dedication paid off with him completing the championship in winning style.
Lewis won 3 rounds of the competition, and was present on the rostrum in the remaining rounds.
He also was invited to participate in the World Under-17 Speedway Championships in Poland and made a good account of himself mixing it up with riders a lot more senior to him, and he gained invaluable experience amongst the 28 riders he raced against.
Lewis was also invited to race in the prestigious Golden Helmet weekend in Pardubice, Czech Republic where he represented Great Britain with the Championship runner-up, Jack Parkinson-Blackburn in the Jawa Cup.
In September, his season took the top highlight, when he was crowned British 250cc Champion!

Lewis is really excited to take the next step to fulfilling his ambition of becoming a professional rider, as he steps up onto the full powered 500cc machine.
Due to his age, he will only be able to race competively in May 2015, as he meets the minimum age for the 500cc machines.
In the meantime, he is using his time to practice and fine-tune his skills as much as possible.
