What a weekend it was in Ernée, France!
30TH MAY 2017

What a weekend it was in Ernée, France for the EMX 125. Let me just say it's probably one of the most difficult tracks I've ridden.
Free Practice and qualifying was at 7:45 am and when I got on the track it was like nothing I've ridden before. There was only 1 or 2 ruts or think mud to choose from so it made putting in a fast qualifying lap difficult. I was 14th until the last few minutes, then I got pushed back to 20th. I then had LCQ (Last chance Qualifying) and the top 10 from that get the last qualifying spots and 11th and 12th get to be reserve riders.
I had a terrible start and came from 27th on the start to about 10th in 2 laps and I stayed there but got passed and got back into 13th and on the last lap passed the guy ahead of me for 12th. That made me 2nd reserve and I had to wait to see if anyone crashed so that I could ride but everyone came to the gate for both moto's so no reserves were put in.
I learnt a lot this weekend and it's going to help me in the future, I just need to go back home and train harder and keep pushing to achieve.
I couldn't be here doing what I'm doing with out my dad and Rob and robbert vd Veerdonk and all my sponsors back home Thor, TRP Distributors, Venture Sport, Reef Tankers, Sj Logistics, KTM South Africa, Alfie Cox Racing, TruRay's, Joey's Spray Painters and Fuchs Lubricants South Africa

My second ONK (International Dutch Championship)!
14TH MARCH 2017

So this weekend was my second ONK (International Dutch Championship) and I got some solid results.
I had 10 minutes to get used to the track and had to set a time to qualify for A group before 20 minutes. I managed to qualify in 14th and had 27th gate choice.
First moto I got a bad start and pick my way into the top 20 by the end of the first lap. By lap 4 I was 15th and stayed there the whole moto but my laptimes started fading big time towards the end.
The second moto I had the same sort of start and fought my way into 13th. Again I started getting tired and got passed which put me in 15th. On the last lap I made a silly mistake and washed the front end going over a stopper jump and got up as fast as possible but it put me back into 16th. So a solid 15th - 16th for a 15th overall.
A huge thanks to my Dad for giving me this opportunity and the Veerdonk for letting me stay with them and always making me feel at home and all my sponsors @thormxofficial , @trp_distributors , Venture Sport, Reef Tankers, Sj Logistics, @ktmsouthafrica , @alfiecoxracing , TruRay's, Joey's Spray Painters , @fuchslubessa @fuchs_titan_silkolene and GPR Promo Team.
