In Round 1 Vinny had taken it easy and placed 17'th overall after stopping to help a rider that was stuck under his bike and allowing the others to start before he took off.
This round we had agreed that he would try to get inside top-ten in all three rides. He was also to learn how to start from the new steel grills that were now fitted to the start gates.
Again there was MX1 and MX2 riders in the mix who used the MX3 ride as an additional chance to get a ride in. Most of them were faster than the MX3 riders, so there would be only limited interference between them. And as they would not get any points in the races the MX3 riders would be left to have their own battles.
In Race 1 Vinny settled in to a good rythm and was enjoying the ride. We had done some changes to the bike and they seemed to work well. A group of four riders developed that Vinny would ride with for all three rides. He finished in 7'th in his class and we were happy with that!
In Race 2 We wanted to see if Vinny could push a little harder. He did just that and managed to keep the three other riders, that he had been fighting with in Race 1, behind him.. We were both surprised with his 3'rd placing!
Race 3 was more of the same. He tussled with the same riders, but his good result in Race 2 had given him confidence and he finished in a respectable 5'th place.
To our surprise 7'th, 3'rd and 5'th was enough to give Vinny 4'th overall on the day. We came looking for a 10'th or better but had not expected this! As an additional bonus Vinny had climbed to 3'rd overall after two rounds! Not bad from the first day of serious racing for Vinny. We are looking forward to Round 3 on 9'th of August!
