We raced at King's Lynn last night for round 4 of the British flat track championship. We had Guy Martin come down with us for his first ever flat track race, we've been training a lot with him on our practice track, he won in the restricted class.

We had trouble with the bike unfortunately, it's gradually deteriorated over the last couple of rounds, and now it's got to a point where we need to look into it, it feels flat and down on power, no good!
I had two 2nds and a win in my heat races, giving my 3rd pick on the front row for the main event.
I didn't make the best if starts, and was 4th into turn 1, I was passed onto the back straight away, I held 5th place for the remainder of the 12 lap final, and the guys in front gradually got away! A very disappointing night for me, I know I had the speed, I feel the bike let me down. I'm now down to 3rd in the championship, 4pts behind 2nd.
We'll get the bike sorted and ready for rd 5, 9th august at amman valley, s wales.

On the upside, this morning I got to ride flat track at our practice track with world famous road racers, Ron and Leon Haslam and Sam Lowes, awesome opportunity to ride with such class riders.

I'm racing at Rockingham next weekend on the road race scene, I've not been to the track before, so I'm looking forward to it! If you would like a ticket, please let me know!

Kind regards,

Tim

Hello!
 
These are a few photos of a local enduro race I recently entered, which is the first one I've entered in about 4 years.

For the first half of the race everything went pretty well, but on a downhill woods section I wiped out, had to return to the pits for repairs, and lost my position.

As for the final results, somehow I managed to place in my class, so I guess it's all good?
 
Thank you for support
 
Daiki

Well, my big race of the year is over. I am already planing next year. My practice week went well. I qualified 3rd despite the rule change allowing 550 twins into what was once the 450 class. On race day I beat my best time with an 11:04 and finished 3rd in class, 16th bike and 38th overall. It was a solid run but my only mistake was a jetting miss-calculation leaving my bike to fat to pull top gear near the summit. Had I done a better job of figuring out the air density on race morning I am sure I would have dropped the 6 seconds separating me from my class winner. I watched a rider do a celebratory  peace sign across the finish line and run off the road at speed into a boulder field. No surviving such a crash. It was violent, gruesome and a bit fucked up. Racing the big mountain requires a lot of respect.  It was a very fun week hanging out with Gary Inman, Sam Christmas, Cowboy my preacher, 'Hot Carl' Sorensen and his 69 chevy van that made it up and down the hill all week and all my other friends and family that made it out. This race is amazing and I recommend it to any one who likes to be smacked in the face with speed thrills. 
5 podiums in 7 years. WOO HOO!
