The HydroGarden event saw more than 84,000 people pay to attend the two-day racing spectacle which saw 1,000 riders go head-to-head in a gruelling series of races.

The roar of the bikes and quads could be heard from all around Weston as sand and mud covered riders battled over ramps, hills and moguls to clock the best time.

Somerset-born Todd Kellett took home the trophy of the 36th annual event, clinching his third consecutive victory in the adult solo race.

He is one of only three riders to take three consecutive wins in the event’s history and is the first to do so in the past 20 years.
