Cab Screens MX had their first big race of the year at Hawkstone Park on Sunday. Both the MX1 and MX2 races had a full 40 line-up including many GP regulars across both classes, plus a wealth of British Championship riders – including our very own Dan Thornhill, George Clarke and Josh Coleman.
Dan had a great ride in MX1, especially as the first time he’d been out on the race bike was the day before the race. Race one saw Dan make good progress to 17th place, and an even better result of 15th in race two for 16th overall.
George had two poor starts in the MX2 races but showed some great speed and persistence to finish 19th and then 16th – 20th overall and a place in the Superfinal with Dan.
Josh was also competing in MX2 and had a crash on lap one of race one, leaving him to start dead last but he made his way up to 25th. The second race saw Josh break into the top 20, with a brilliant ride into 18th place and 23rd overall.
The Superfinal was made up of the top 20 MX1 and MX2 riders and we were pleased to have both Dan and George on the start gate. A crash on lap one for Dan and a damaged bike meant he had to settle for 25th. George also crashed and had to pull out due to a damaged bike.
Overall a great day, we learnt a lot and it will help massively in getting the team prepared for the British Championships next month.
Well done Dan, George and Josh and thanks to all our sponsors.
