Myles Had to say after, It wasnt my best weekend But thunderX is a different game to motox and you need to know the track can change so much between races. with my chain coming off i think im going to take the rear bash plate off and run a chain guide to help with that. well done to Josh he rode really well this weekend.
With blackwater being the final round of the ch series for 2010 numbers where down on previous rounds. Blackwater track is a hard pack track with a great set of whoops and a rythm section. With 13 competitors and people vying for overalls in the series. Dillon was out of contention with missing early rounds due to injury.
Race 1 saw Dillon with a holeshot to lead half of the first lap before stalling it in a corner, after getting started was sitting 5th before making some smooth passing through the rythm section and making it into 2nd before the end of the lap made it in to 1st and pulled a good lead and ride smooth.
Race 2 was another holeshot for Dillon and never looked back from then on with Matty Marshall behind in 2nd
Race 3 was not the best of starts 3rd out of the first corner then in the whoops made 2 great passes to move into first and with the track getting very rough made for great racing, with one lap to go a broken chain ended race 3 for Dillon.
Myles said after the race," Im very dissapointed with the last race but thats racing i spose, bike was awsome today through the whoops and rough sections my fitness is improving all the time and looking forward to some thunder x races coming up.
