Leah Goes Big

Last weekend was the first DirtQuake at Eastbourne, the 8th Dirt Quake in the UK, the 12th in total (not including the three Snow Quakes).

The DTRA Hooligan class played a big part of the Dirt Quake day and it was bossed by Leah Tokelove on her S&S-spec Indian FTR 1200. The race win came off the back of her recent Hooligan class win at Krowd Race in Germany, and was her first ever DTRA final win.

Leah not only took the win from the hard-charging current Hooligan champ Gary Birtwistle (on a Ducati Scrambler), and her Indian team-mate Lee Kirkpatrick, she did it while she was also presenting the official ITV4 coverage along with Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness and TV regular Steve Parrish. She is some woman.

Watch the coverage TONIGHT on ITV4 at 8pm or on the ITVPlayer catch-up service.

Read the very first feature on Leah that was ever printed in Sideburn 25 while stocks last.
