| Liam Jordan McGermott: BDS RD2 Fort William
After months of excitement the bagpipes were calling Trg racing to the Scottish highlands for the second round of the Saracen British downhill series at the great al mighty fortwilliam.
Blake Senior-Whites: BDS round 2 Fort William.
After the mammoth drive taking 6 hours i woke up saturday morning to find the weather was on no ones side. Before i knew it i was going up to the top looking over the Scottish highlands from the gondala. After trying to memorise the track from last year i had a massive over the bars resulting in a cracked helmet peak with a bit of evostick put right.
After a few more runs getting to grips with the track seeding runs had been brought forward due to the bad weather forecast for sunday. Seeding was steady giving me 25th position which i wasn’t too pleased with but i knew there was more to give on sunday.
All the team then went for tea at a pub in Fort William which was a good laugh. After a beer in the van we retired for the day ready for sunday.
Sunday morning there were no ques for the uplift so two runs were easy to get in before race runs. Micheal Coupe then came to Liams and Dannys rescue by becoming team mechanic after a crash in saturday practice. Race runs then came around, which were running on time. I set off from the top feeling confident and strong. Its was all going to plab until i entered the woods and slippes on a roots resulting in me hitting a tree. I got got myself back together and finished in 28th out of 67.
Welldone to Liam getting 19th in juniors, Jamie 28th in experts, Danny 49th in senior, Mick hill 11th, Mick Waud 13th and Rich Molloy 15th all in vets.
