Confident Ollerton rider Lynden Leatherland says he believes he can take the British title next season after deciding to compete again in the Dickies Junior Supersports Championship.

The 20-year-old was planning a change after failing to make the top five in the standings in 2019, but has opted to remain on his GL Fabrications Kawasaki Ninja 400 bike.

Leatherland said: “After a lot of thought and advice from ex-racers, I made the decision to give the Junior Supersports another go.

“I had top ten finishes in almost every round last season, plus a podium, so I believe I can take the title.

“There will be a lot of hard work during the off-season tp get prepared, and I am really looking forward to competing at the front again.”
