Todays course was 25 miles long in the opposite direction to yesterday with two special tests and Championship riders having to complete an extra lap. The test at Caranagrie was blowing an absolute gale that played havoc in the Fuel area.
Holcombe, Edmondson and Mccanney found a 100 meter stretch off the traditional line that allowed them to carry more speed into the right hander at the end of the straight which saved time. For lesser riders this stretch was strength sapping with many being happy just to hang on. Edmondson chose some interesting lines through the remainder of the test opting to go around trees forcing a wider line but allowing the little KTM more drive to the next turn.
David Knight was a retirement today, although brother Juan was still in the event and doing well on his Gas Gas. The Times were tight all day between local rider Mccanney, Steve Holcombe, Tom Sagar and the impressive Jack Edmondson.
Husqvarna mounted Danny Mccanney takes the overall win on both days round’s 3/4 with Steve Holcombe 2nd overall on both days and Jack Edmondson taking 3rd overall on both days, The whole event proved to be a well organised success with the feedback from riders of all abilities being positive.
