So, Bud’s jacked in the ginger KTM and gone blue, we caught up with him to find out how he’s getting on with the new bike…
After a few hard races getting used to the Yamaha WR250 (coming from the Ktm 200EXC), I’m starting to get to grips with the bike. I’m really pleased with the power delivery, suiting more h&h and fast flowing races. Along with the plush suspension out the box, it makes for a great bike! I’d like to thank Marsh Mx for sorting a great deal and supporting me with parts for 2016!
Now used to the bike, Sunday took me to Llandovery for the CTR 2.5hr H&H. With an okay start of 5th off the line the first couple of laps was an ice rink!
As the weather dried up, so did the track, leaving a fast flowing mixture of woods and fields!
Pacing myself for the race I took a good speed till the half way pit stop, as I came out the track was drying and rutting nicely so started to push and take bigger risks on the harder lines.
Racing my own race for the 2.5 hrs I was happy with my pace but my placing was unknown. I was happy to finish and take 3rd in the expert class, the first podium on the dirtpunk yam!
