Fellow E2 rider and team mate, Michael Driscoll, wasn‰Ûªt his usually speedy self on the weekend and had to settle for fourth in class and just outside the top 10 outright, in eleventh. Although extremely consistent all day, Driscoll was slightly off the pace of the front runners in the E1 division.
He finished the opening lap in fourth place and remained there for the rest of the day. His best lap came on lap two and then he mounted a late charge for the podium but ultimately came up six minutes short of the third placed rider.
‰ÛÏI just didn‰Ûªt have the speed or the confidence to ride at the same pace as the guys up the front and was just the fourth place rider today. I tried a few different things, but nothing really made a difference. The reality is, I need to be better in conditions like this so it‰Ûªs something I will have to work on so I‰Ûªm far more competitive in the future.
‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs a big effort to come all the way out here for a one day event, so thank you to the team and our sponsors for making all this happen.‰Û
