Motocross rider James Dodd endured a disappointing weekend at the latest British Motorcross Championship round.

WINSCOMBE’S James Dodd and the TwoNineTwo Honda team headed east to Lyng, near Norwich, for round three of the British Motocross Championship, hoping to pick up some more points in his 3 MX1 class races.

It was to be a disappointing weekend though. James battled hard in the opening race after being held up behind a crash just after the start.

He showed good fitness to pick up places in the latter half of the race, but despite his best efforts a 28th was the best he could manage and was outside of the top 20 scoring positions.

In race two, James was just outside of the top 20 early on in the race, but a couple of small mistakes saw him lose a few places, which he was unable to reclaim as he crossed the finish at the back of a small train of riders in 27th.

Race three was to turn out to be a nightmare race for James as he got hit by another rider from behind on the opening lap and remounted in last place. He tried to ride on and catch up to the rest of the field, but there was some damage to his 450cc Honda machine and it was proving to be an impossible task, eventually pulling out of the race just after halfway.

It was a hard and long weekend for the team, but they will move on as the head to round three of the Premier MX championship’s this coming weekend.
