Albert's dirty weekend!

Post by Albert »

No, no, no, you mucky minded lot! Not THAT sort of dirty weekend! ;)

It was like this --

The weekend was setting itself up to be quiet, the forecast wasn't too bad so Mrs Albert, myself, our daughter and her other half decided to venture deep into darkest Shropshire to watch some MotoX at Hawkstone Park.
We feel privileged to have witnessed the prodigious talent of the 15 year old German rider, Ken Roczen on his MX2 Suzuki.
Having already won two races in his own class he was looking good to win the Super Final where the MX1 and MX2 bikes race together, the smaller bikes getting a 4 second start. At one point he was leading Tanel Leok on his MX1 Honda by around 10 seconds but eventually (partly because of the incident pictured below) the bigger bike of Leok overhauled him with 2 laps to go and took the win by 8 seconds!

Hawkstone's hill is a killer for the smaller engined bikes!

I believe I'm growing sceptical of cynicism!
