Here’s what Dirt’s Ralph Jones had to say:
I had a good finish to my NPS season having had some bad luck in the first three of races.
The event was one of the best NPS’s ive been to and they changed the transport using lorries and busses which ran well all weekend hardly having to queue at all. The track was really good best one i have ridden at Innerleithen, really flat out through the tight trees and some cool jumps and flat drifty turns to finish. Practice went well and got all my lines sorted and up to speed. In the final i just tried to be smooth at the top in the woods and carry speed then pedal hard at the bottom, and let it hang out on the sections that i new i could. I ended in 6th place which was awesome and to follow my 4th at Caersws.
