February 25, 2019

This weekend the team took the long trek through France, for the Lacapelle Marival international. Harri was competing in the competitive MX1 class with a host of GP regulars.

Timed practice saw Harri post the 7th fastest time, after being 5th for most of the session, until Max Anstie and Ivo Monticelli put in flying last laps.
Race one and Harri gated well in 9th place and held the position til late on, when former World MX2 Champions, Jordi Tixier, edged past to push Harri into a great 10th place.
Harri had an incredible start in race two as the Cab Screens Deos Group machine powered into a holeshot in front of the factory and GP machines, only to run wide and end lap one in 4th place.

Factory Kawasaki rider, Clement Desalle, came past Harri a few laps later and Harri held a fantastic 5th place for most of the race, until Desalle went missing towards the end and Harri reclaimed 4th place til the flag.

10th and 4th place gave Harri 7th overall. A brilliant result for Harri and the team against such stiff competition.

The last race of the day was the combined MX1 and MX2 Super Final, where Harri finished a strong 12th.

Dan Thornhill was making his racing comeback as this weekend as he took to the venue of this weekend MX Nationals. He scored 1-3-3 finishes against a host of British Chmapionship contenders to finished 3rd overall.

The team, Harri and Dan are raring to go as the UK national season kicks of this weekend at Sherwood, with MX Nationals Round One.
