About Me

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!
