Ellison steps up at Brands

James Ellison's British Superbike campaign got off to a strong start at Brands Hatch last weekend, with the Cumbrian rider securing a double podium finish and taking victory in the second race of the day.
Ellison - who has used Knox body armour throughout his BSB career, and has chosen Knox Handroid gloves to help keep his 2010 campaign on track - started from tenth on the grid in the opening race, battling through the field to secure third.
In race two he got off to a storming start, leading the field to the finish and giving the Swan Honda team their first win of the season.
Ellison said: "I knew we had the pace so it was a case of keeping it smooth and consistent as there were about ten people out there that could have won the race. I wanted to get into the lead in the second race, as we moved up to the front row, and I knew we would have a good shot at the win, which is exactly what we did."
Protecting vulnerable areas, like hands and feet, is crucial for any racer as even a ‘small’ injury like a scaphoid break can put a rider out action for several weeks; loosing rider and team vital championship points.
Working closely with James, and other riders, Knox has developed a new range of motorcycle gloves, featuring a host of patented protection and safety innovations. Features include unique exoskeleton finger protection, Knox’s patented Scaphoid Protection System and the exclusive BOA lacing system.
