Things weren’t easy for team Dyer and Butler at this weekend’s Red Bull Pro Nationals. The heavens opened and Fat cats became a giant puddle rather than a moto park. But we are British, it’s the jubilee and no amount of rain can put us off, especially when there is racing to be done.
“The weather made it hard work” says Alan Keet “and I didn’t make it easy on myself in the first race. I had a terrible start which put me at a great disadvantage”
But even after both riders came off they still managed to come in 12th for Keet in the mx2 class and 8th for Waterman in mx1.
Race 2 was survival of the fittest and only the worthy need apply.
“The track was really cut up and sloppy in the last Race” says Josh Waterman “and I aggravated an old back injury the previous day, but I was determined to gain as many points as possible”
The discomfort didn’t seem to trouble him and Josh Waterman gained a solid 10th, producing his best results of the season with a 7th overall in the mx1 class.
After his second bad start of the day Alan ploughed on through the relentless rain, coming in a reasonable 9th giving him 8th overall.
