4X Pro Tour Fort William
I've been coming to Fort William for many years and for me it is one
of my favorite places to go to. The organization is good, Scotland is breathtaking and the crowd is
the biggest and loudest of them all!
Saturday afternoon the crowd rolled in and in the beginning of the evening the
4X hill side was packed with people. I qualified fastest and had a lot of fun riding this track.
I struggled a bit out of the gate in my semi-final and was bouncing bars with Katy Curd.
Unfortunately Katy crashed and I was able to stay up right and advance through to the final.
In the final I knew I had to get a good gate, Melissa Buhl from the USA was right next to me
but I got a good gate and was able to take the lead.
I had the finish line in my sight when all of a sudden I hit a rock and blew up my rear tire!!!
I tried to continue, but the tire came off the wheel and I had to walk down to the finish area.
Bit dissapointed ending up in 4th, but I know it's a part of the game.
1 Melissa Buhl - USA
2 Celine Gros - FRA
3 Suzanne Lacey- GBR
4 Anneke Beerten - NED
5 Katy Curd - GBR
