Top 5 for Thornhill at Red Bull Pro

The weather this week has been absolutely unbelievable, it has not stopped raining, conditions have been really bad, but to my surprise turning up at Canada Heights, for the 3rd round of the RedBull Pro Nationals; the track was dry, and the sun was out.

Woke up Saturday morning, with the sun shining, out for qualifying first, the track had been prepared well.

Qualifying did not go as well as I had wished, and I qualified 11th, a little disappointed.

First race, left the concrete start, but the bike seemed to sink in the sand, and I gated about 15th, managed to push hard and got into 6th, but disaster struck dropped it in a turn, back on my bike and managed to finish 9th.

Second race was determined to get out the gate, had a reasonable start about 9th, pushed hard round the first three corners and found myself in the top 5 pushing harder and harder and eventually finished 3rd.

Third race, not to bad a start, pushing hard, the track was rough and technical, had a good race and finished 4th.

Sunday woke up to the rain pounding the van, we had had so much rain, the track was unrideable, and the Redbull made the decision to cancel the meeting.

I finished 5th overall.

I would like to thank all my sponsors for their continued support.

Overall Results for the weekends:
1. Jake Millward
2. Liam Garland
3. Ben Watson
4. James Harrison
5. Dan Thornhill
