After a tough week leading up to Nant G, having suffered a crash practicing the week before injuring my ankle my hopes were not too high for the opening round of the Halo BDS.
Practice went well on saturday the track was pretty technical up top and flat with lots of pedaling down at the bottom.To my surprise the BDS crew had got the uplift running sweet, I managed to get 6 runs in ready for sunday.
We were greeted with drizzle sunday morning which stayed through the day. After making the decision to change from Maxxis High roller to spikes after practice , I was hoping to be able to give them a run in seeding!!! Due to a couple of injuries causing delays the decision was made to cancel seeding. Doh!!
After a long delay we finally raced I was really pleased with the way I rode hitting all my lines and even a new one in my race run. Winning with such a stacked field fills me with confidence for the upcoming World Cups and what better way to start defending my BDS title.
