In just a few weeks, the World Cup hits Fort William, so the boys were keen to get some solid practice runs in. Oh and a solid few quarry sessions on the moped and TTR. Check out all the action below!
Phil Atwill was ecstatic that he could fit his moped in the back of his car and bring it up to Fort William. Many wheelie sessions and quarry evenings were had in between the dusty, yes dusty, riding of the infamous track.
The boys got there a day early so were able to spread between 15 and 20 runs over the three days. Phil put down a solid run on race day and stuck within the top three for a good while, then ending up 12th which against what was pretty much a World Cup field. Check out what he had to say about the weekend below-
“I’m happy, I’m still in 3rd currently and I had a really good run. I did all my little warm ups and breathing exercises at the top and I’m now happy with my pre-race routine. Dug deep and got to the finish, and I’m ready for the World Cup! And we rode the sh*t out of the TTRs, but my moped is broke because I tried to make her go faster and now it’s not having any of it.”
