Another weekend and another GG Enduro Team outlining at www.worevents.com
Four riders lined up on Sunday morning at the Firbank venue on the Cumbrian hills. A slippery technical course was in store for the riders in a big contrast to last weekend’s super-fast track at Ludlow.
Good friend and GG Dealer Juan Knight was the best GG rider on the day easily winning the Expert Vet Class and was 4th overall.
Juan and family had already booked a boat etc for the BEC that was cancelled so still made the trip to the mainland and both Juan and Tom enjoyed their weekend in the Lakes.
Ryan Shacklady was the next best GG rider finishing 4th in the Expert Class and 5th overall on the 2018 EC300RACING.
Young 17 years old GG rider Dawson Marriott finished 4th in the Clubman on his new 2018 EC250RACING. This was Dawson’s only second event on the gasser and is getting used to the 250 2t very quickly. Im impressed with Dawson so far and nice to see a very keen young rider onboard.
4th GG rider was myself who had a poor day. Crashed on lap 3 breaking my front mudguard off didn’t help but is no excuse. I had little ‘racing’ in me and was more concerned in staying upright and not injuring myself which was easy to do with the terrain and conditions. I rode with old sparring partner Lincoln Brewster for a couple of laps before I just let him go. Fair play to him because he’ll fight to the bitter end. I still managed the Exp Vet podium in 3rd place but definitely getting old!
Thanks to Factory Kev for prepping my EC250
