so over the time my last blog i had a terrible accident braking my wrist a second time and doing my PCL ligament in my knee and dislocated my hip all in one so that took 12 weeks to recover and when i came back my speed was not far of where i left of but my fitness was shocking but part of the sport we all love. Last week i went to culham doing the bridgestone nationals getting 19 in qualifying not too good but improving the whole weekend race one getting 18 then race two 18 again then day two started of so much better getting 15 and 17 so all round a brilliant weekend getting back to normal doing the nationals so really positive few weeks.

This month has been good for practice is going good racing is going all round really happy with my riding so far and we done the MCF team event at little silver good results so the first race was so so wet I was leading then crashed the then my bike was stuck so I had to put it in gear and push it but it was to late and I got water in the carb and it was to later I came 7th and that was my worst race of the weekend then my best result was 3rd so at the end of the weekend I cane away with 4th overall witch I’m quite happy about and this weekend I’m hoping for a good weekend again at launchaly with southsomerset and it’s a local my so I’m happy with that so I’m looking forward to that good luck all.

A really good month racing all over the country travelling from fatcats Moto parc to wolverly and Barmouth beach race in preparation for Weston beach race at Barmouth went 2,2,2,2,2 for second overall and 3 holeshots was definitely the roughest track I have ever rode in my life really good experience with that race and now onto Weston beach race just finished today good start behind the quad and was into the first few corners in top 5 so that good and pit stopped twice didn’t crash all race so that good came out 6th in both sw and bw and hopefully going to do even better next year.

For the last two days of the week was the best experience I’ve had, I’ve never ridden in Holland before so it was amazing to have the opportunity to ride with Justin Morris. Then i didn’t ride for 3 weekends after that, then on the 3rd week was South Somerset presentation night I come back with 1st overall and the best newcomer in my class i’m over the moon. Last weekend i’ve been in Dunkirk in France training for next year. #654

6th February 2020

The past few weeks have been pretty decent I’ve been to Dunkirk other known as loon-plage in France which we stayed out there for a weekend doing 20minute motos around one of the toughest tracks I’ve ever been to and ridden on and then riding at Fatcat Moto Parc in Doncaster doing some very good winter training with Justin Morris doing cornering and starts mainly cornering but all good at that weekend up in Doncaster now to the weekend just gone by at Polesworth doing 3rd in race 1 and 2nd in race to and in race 2 I had a really nasty big crash coming down the hill and highsided and I was thrown up into the air and landed on my collarbone causing and sprung collarbone but doing well got any appointment on Monday and waiting to see how it goes after that. Ill keep you all updated with my injury.

16th May 2020

These last two months have been tough for all of us the COVID-19 is devastating for everyone. being in lockdown is the most horrible and annoying thing for all of us staying fit whilst in lockdown is crucial even if you go on a 1 hour bike ride now I am on the 125 it’s very crucial to stay fit and if i had the choose of what track to ride when i come back after lockdown it would have to be the new fatcats race track. I would love to ride my 125 round there. Anyway i hope you’re all staying safe and home .
