Dirt-bike racer Kurt Griffiths is preparing to showcase his skills in front of thousands of people at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena today.

The 11-year-old schoolboy, who won the previous round of the Arenacross Tour in Newcastle , has his sights set on the top of the rankings in the 85cc class competition.

Kurt, of Worksop, said: “Sheffield is my local area and I’ve got lots of family and friends going – I’m really looking forward to it.

“It was buzzing to stand on top of the podium in front of so many people and I’m feeling great after winning in Newcastle.

“I would love to do it again in Sheffield - we can hear the crowds from under our helmets and the louder they are the harder we push ourselves.”

Kurt, a student at Serlby Park Academy, has been competing in motocross since he was just four.
