Thomas Larwood wanted to get back to his best form this weekend but had a very rough weekend. Getting bad starts in the first two 125 races, Thomas pushed to climb back to 5th place in both motos. A different strategy for moto three saw seen him start wide to try a sweep around the first turn, instead he got knocked and had a huge first turn crash which would see a foot peg gash his bicep which would later need stitches. He climbed back on his YZ125 and charged to 8th position which was a very gutsy effort. As the 250F race is Sunday on seniors‰Ûª day, Thomas's arm proved too sore to compete.
"I am not very happy with how my weekend turned out. It was just one thing after another and I just couldn't get a break. My arm was to sore for Sunday, I rode practice and had trouble hanging on so unfortunately I had to pull out of the days racing," said Thomas.
SAYJR Team Manager Shane Metcalfe was once again very happy with the boys‰Ûª efforts on the track.
‰ÛÏBoth Alex and Taj showed that all the hard work they have done is coming to life. Thomas had bad luck this weekend, I'm hoping he goes home and works really hard and comes out at Murray Bridge in a few weeks‰Ûª time and proves what he can do," commented Metcalfe.
