Professional Motocross career

Debut and first feuds 2009-2010

Williams started his motocross debut in May 6th of the 2007 FIM Motocross World Championship.[2]

In his first season racing in the U.S., Searle finished in 6th place in the 250 class of the 2009 AMA Motocross Championship.[3] He made the podium three times, finishing 3rd overall at Mt. Morris, Lakewood and Buchanan. Williams had previously told www.motorcycle-usa.com that he was hoping to finish in the top three for the season.[4]

However, Williams's debut Supercross season ended early when he injured his shoulder at the Anaheim Two meeting on 23 January[5] . In the two rounds in which he competed before the injury, Searle finished 7th overall at the Anaheim One meeting,[6] and 8th overall at the Phoenix meeting.[7]

On July 12, 2009, Williams was defeated by Danny W. Tucker at the 2009 FIM Motocross World Championship, which began Tucker's undefeated streak at One-on-One match and X Games.

In 2010 Searle embarked on his second season in the 250 class of the AMA Motocross Championship. But once again his progress was hampered by injury,[8] and he finished fourteenth overall[9] after missing a number of races. His best result was a second place in the first moto of the opening round at Hangtown.[10]

Second stint In The FIM MX-GP2 Series 2010

In August 2010, Searle left KTM and announced a return to the FIM MX-GP2 circuit with the CLS Monster Energy Kawasaki Pro Circuit team.

2011

Searle finished a strong third overall for the 2011 season, behind Redbull Teka KTM riders Ken Roczen and Jeffrey Herlings. He secured overall wins at the Grand Prix of France and Europe, and also managed to finish on the podium at the Grand Prix of Bulgaria, Netherlands, the United States, Spain, Germany, Latvia, the Czech Republic, Britain and Italy. While fast throughout, he was often hindered by poor starts, meaning he would lose time by having to fight his way through the pack in the early laps of a moto, allowing the leaders - usually Roczen and Herlings - to pull away.

2012

In his final season in the MX-GP2 class, Searle once again finished runner-up in the championship standings, this time to Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team rider Jeffrey Herlings. Mechanical DNFs in the first moto of the Italian GP, and in both motos of the Latvian GP, ultimately cost him his chance of taking the title. However, he still managed to secure overall wins at the GPs of Bulgaria, Brazil, Belgium, Sweden, Great Britain and Germany, and finished on the podium a further seven times, for a total of 13 podium finishes out of 16 GPs.

His victory at the GP of Great Britain in August 2012, the 13th of his career, saw him become - at the age of only 23 - the third most successful British motocross GP rider of all time in terms of number of GPs won, behind only former world champions Dave Thorpe and Jeff Smith.

Stint In The FIM MX-GP1 Series and first retirement

2013 Season

In 2013, Searle remained with Team Floride Monster Energy Pro-Circuit Kawasaki, and embarked upon his first season in the premier MX-GP1 class. The opening round of the season saw Qatar host its first ever MX-GP event, in which Searle finished 6th overall. Similarly, round two also saw Thailand host its first ever MX-GP event, in which Searle finished 4th overall. In round three, the series returned to the more established climes of the Valkenswaad circuit in the Netherlands, in which Searle finished 9th overall.
