I am Back From Another Successful Round on Anglesey

IMG 24021 e1376901807805 225x300 I am Back From Another Successful Round on AngleseyIt’s strange, I am not comfortable around Anglesey’s track, yet I seem to always get my best results there. No trophies this year but I did score another first. I got points in the rather competitive Open 600 class for the first time ever. Not only that, but it was in the wet too. This one was not by default with people falling off or breaking down. This was a full on qualifying 12th and finishing 13th out of 22 finishers. I was very happy about that. I am currently crunching the videos, starting off with the Sunday’s Street Stock and Pre Injection final as it was the best actual race between me and my seemingly ever present green shadow Graham Kealey on the No 51 Kawasaki. The days couldn’t have been more different, the Saturday being very wet and windy and the Sunday being really dry and sunny, yet still windy.

On a not so good note. My Ohlins shock, which I have just spent the best part of £200 on to service is leaking. I took it to Colin at 100% Suspension and he has diagnosed a crack in the milling of the  casting near the compression adjuster. I am, as you can imagine not greatly happy in 2 things. 1 that it has happened and 2 that is wasn’t seen by Kais when they did the service. There are 2 things to say on the plus side here. 1 is that it is a known issue on this shock and it may be, just maybe covered under warranty and that I could still race due to swapping my shock with Tom Vear’s (#22) one as he wasn’t racing. I owe him big style for his generosity. I shall have to see what the Ohlins warranty is like. The bike after all has not been crashed (yet) or mistreated so I am kind of hopeful that I can get the £300+ casing replaced for free.
