Motocross rider James Dodd sits in 10th place in the British Masters MX competition.

AFTER a week off from racing, James Dodd and the TwoNineTwo Honda team made the relatively short trip from Winscombe to Foxhill, near Swindon, for round two of the British Masters MX.

Race one saw James get an excellent start as he rounded the opening corners in a top five position, but as the race went on and quicker riders came through from the back and James began to slip down the order, eventually going on to take 15th.

Race two saw James get a good start and he was sitting comfortably just outside of the top 10 until just past the midway stage when a rider came into a corner out of control and used James to stop.

Lucky to escape injury, James remounted his bike, which had some minor damage from the incident, recomposed himself and got back going again. He managed to make a few passes and get himself up into 16th by the time the finish flag was raised.
