Fullnoise: You had a fair bit of competition on the weekend, there were quite a few of the riders you will line up against in the MX2 class at the nationals out there and also Adam Monea who will be a front runner in the MX1 class.
From all accounts you had a good battle in the first race with Joel Milesevic and also Monea in the later races. How was it to mix it up with some quality riders before the Nationals get underway?
Makeham: The competition was good actually, in the first race myself and Joel had an awesome battle, pretty much for 25 minutes. I think we swapped the lead about fifteen times during the race! That was a really cool race to come back to and gave me a good test. It was so much fun probably one of the most fun races I have ever had.
The second race went well, I got a good start and checked out in that one. In the last one I got around Joel for second and tried to make a charge at Adam, but I was going to have to ride over my head to catch him so I played it safe took the round win for the day and left with a fair bit of knowledge.
Fullnoise: It was your first race back, the big question is how did you body pull up and most importantly how is your shoulder?
Makeham:The body was sore hey! I was definitely was feeling it Monday (Laughs). I spent most of Monday recovering, stretching and in the bath just trying to get myself to be able to walk again!
Other than that just normal wear and tear, the body is feeling good, I have put a lot of effort into my shoulder, it had always been a weakness my shoulders, and it has taken a while to get my strength back. After the weekend though I have no complaints there, it was 110% and the body come up good.
