Matt Tolley

AMCA Youth 85/150 Champion

Written by Mike Wood

Aboard his IDS/Tolley Jewellers KTM, the youngster took the title 149 points clear of Harry Ridgway.

On his way to glory, Matt scored 11 moto wins and was on the podium in 8 out of the 9 completed rounds. The only event in which he failed to make the top three was during round 7 at Hawkstone Park.

In a simply terrific season he took the overall wins at Norley, Bushton and Fatcats with maximum points. Arguably that maximum at Fatcats included the ride of 2019! After being forced to stop when a rival got his leg wrapped in the KTM's back wheel just yards from the start of moto two, Matt then blasted from last right through to snatch the win, what an effort that was!

For 2020, Matt will be moving up to 125cc machinery but you can be sure he's still going to be ultra competitive. Well done Matt on a truly stunning 2019.
