I have had a mixed start to this year with a couple of good finishes but i haven’t seen the form of previous years. I felt like my form was working out well for the first race on the National Series at Hetton le hole with hot competition from all over the UK it was always going to be tuff race. The weather played its part with the wind breaking up race. On lap two I suffered a mechanical with my gears not working i missed the attack and went backwards through the field. I rode to the end with great disappointment.
