James climbs up the standings

Motocross rider James Dodd moved up to 12th position in the Red Bull Pro National Pro MX1 class.

THE TwoNineTwo Honda motocross team headed north to Whitby in North Yorkshire for round four of the Red Bull Pro Nationals, with James Dodd competing in the Pro MX1 class.

In the opening race, James came out of the first bend in second position, but got hit from behind in the next, rejoining the race in 20th place, eventually claiming a 10th place finish.

Race two saw James outside the top 20 from the start, but he again started passing his rivals and steady progress saw him up into 11th on the final lap and one big final push gained him another place at the death to take another 10th place.

In the third and final race of the day, James was again outside the top 20 from the start and with work to do, he could only get into 12th by the time the finish flag was raised.
