This weekend saw us loaded up to make our way to the fifth round the Redbull Pro-Nationals at Canada Heights, Swanley.

With some overnight rain on Friday night, the track was looking in prime condition, come Saturday mornings qualifying.

Again Rookies were out first and I managed to qualify in a 6th place finish, which I felt was good for me as me and the track struggle to gel.

Moto one arrived with not the ideal start I was looking for, but pushed round the first few corners to make my way into the top 5. Two laps in a little slip off in wooded sectioned made me drop back a few places, but getting back on and pushing on I made my way into the top five to secure a descent 5th place.

Moto two started a little better than the first race, had to push hard on the first lap, and rode a constant race to finish fourth.

Moto three, had a much better start, felt a little bit more at home with the track, the track getting rougher and gnarley, and finished third.

Sunday morning, saw us wake up to a beautiful day, when we went out for our fourth moto the track was in a perfect condition, lines appeared from the previous Pro race. Start was reasonable, having to push hard through the first few turns, riding a hard race to finish 4th.

Moto five, what a difference with an hour’s storm, the track had become technical and gnarly, I had the best start of the weekend coming round the first turn in 2nd, pushed hard, within 2 laps jumped into the lead, the track suited me down to the ground, I got the bit between my teeth and pushed and pushed, eventually taking the chequered flag 14 seconds in the lead, I felt soo good and pleased with my result.

A good weekends racing finishing 2nd overall.

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