Australia's Daniel McCoy has finished second overall in the 2014 UK Arenacross Championship with a third place finish at the season finale in London on the weekend.
McCoy headed into the final round sitting in second place in the championship standings 21 points behind French racer Fabien Izoird ,who wrapped up the championship at the previous round in Sheffield.
With only 20 points on offer and no way of catching Izoird, McCoy's focus was on holding off Cyrille Coulon for second place which he managed to do, finishing directly behind Coulon in the season ending final main event and in doing so claimed second step on the podium by three points over the Molson Suzuki rider.
"I am Pretty happy with 2nd in the championship considering such late notice to go an race on a bike I haven't been on in twelve months," McCoy told fullnoise.com.au. "Luckily I had Factory Spec suspension put a setting together before I left Australia and it worked at every round with no testing, so I felt right at home straight away.
"The competition was tough with guys from riders from six different countries, but it made for some good racing for the fans."
While McCoy enjoyed his time in Great Britain, he is looking forward to getting home and getting in some more time aboard his TM 250 two stroke as he builds towards his next goal of taking on the MX2 class at this years Monster Energy MX Nationals.
"I experienced a lot in such a short stay of seven weeks and am very happy to return home safe and fit with all that racing up my sleeve heading into the opening round of the MX Nationals." McCoy continued.
"I tested a lot over Christmas before heading overseas aboard the TM and have a great base to come home to. We will finalise some set up with the bike over the next couple of weeks and come out with what will be a very competitive bike to run up front this season with."
