Hey All. I am Will, Im 24 years old from Norfolk, United Kingdom. I work as a Sales Exec for a flooring firm which keeps me able to race at the weekend. I guess my ideal job would be to work in the MX industry but a lot of that...
Well, its a few days after Blaxhall and I have to be honest, the Motorhome and bike aren't gleaming yet! It was wet. Really wet. The kind of wet that takes days to get rid of! Working a regular job in the week means i get so little time to clean up after the weekend, but it will be done tomorrow, i swear!Anyway, back to the racing. The day started out with free practice and after heavy rain since around 5am the track was already pretty terrible.I made sure i put plenty of effort into preparing my gate for the opener, it paid off and i got a great jump, 4th into turn one, avoiding most of the slop! I made my way quickly to 2nd by turn 4 and set about chasing the leader down who had an astonishing lead after such a short time, i guess he hadn't had any spray at all! So coming to the end of the first lap I had closed to a few bike lengths of the leader when he made a mistake and went down. I moved into the lead and pulled a comfortable gap, the track rode pretty well considering, there was one good line and the rest was mush! I cruised home with around a 20 second lead.Race 2...well, after winning the first race, I was bumped up into the expert class! This is great, but i didnt have any goggles prepped with tear offs so grabbed some roll offs. I was sitting in 9th around half distance when the roll offs jammed and I couldnt see! I missed a rut and stalled the bike, it seemed to take an eternity to fire and I was down in 20th. I had no goggles but was mad! I rode hard for the rest of the moto, passing anyone I could. I brought it home in 14th, rueing what could have been a top ten in my first expert race. Oh well!
