To say that was a tough weekend would be an understatement. Not gonna beat about the bush we didn’t qualify for the races, we were within the qualifying time but outside the top 40 allowed to race. 4 seconds off of my pace from similar conditions last year. Very disappointing start to the season, especially when we’re capable of so much more. We have struggled with the bike set up since returning from Spain, not allowing me to feel comfortable enough to push.
On the positive side, we’ve returned home safe and sound, fairly incident free (except the imprint of of the footrest on the side of my calf from saving what would have been a massive crash) on a weekend of pretty awful conditions. Extra bonus, we won the lottery, a whopping £84!
Onto the next round at Brands, We’ll be working hard over the next week and a half to make improvements ready to push from the start. Massive thanks for all the support this weekend, even on the lowest days, we still managed to stick together and keep morale high.
