Tom Sagar and the Suzuki RMX450Z clinched the 2010 GBXC Championship at the weekend, as the pair took their fourth win of the five round series at Ashby de la Zouche in Leicestershire.

With the championship hosting its first sprint event on Saturday, Sagar started his weekend off in the best way possible with a convincing win in the timed lap session.

In Sunday's main event, Sagar started promisingly again, settling into a race-long battle with Rose once more, before pulling the pin in the final stages of the event to finish over two-minutes clear to take the win and the 2010 championship title.

Sagar commented, "That was a great weekend of racing. I really enjoyed the sprint event on Saturday and with the win from that I felt really positive about the main event. The battle with Jordan was great on Sunday, but the enduro-focussed RMX proved to be the perfect tool and I was able to open up a comfortable gap to take the win and give the RMX450Z its first championship title."

Team manager, Paul Edmondson, commented, "Big congratulations to Tom. He's ridden well all year and won every GBXC round he's entered. Before the season began the new RMX450Z was a completely unknown entity for us, but from the moment he swung a leg over it at the press launch in Devon, Tom clicked with it and felt comfortable. Next stop the British Championship, with a bit of luck".

Tom Sagar and Paul Edmondson will be back out in action at the British Enduro Championship on 25th and 26th September, where they both hope to clinch their respective championship titles.
