Victorian 2012 Senior Title

December 1 was the date for the Senior Victorian Title which was held at Undera Speedway.  A pretty good field was assembled to contest the title and my first heat was a good one in which I took the 3 points.   I followed up with three seconds but then had a fall in my final heat which saw me excluded.

I had still managed enough points to get me into the B final with a chance to progress to the A final if I won.  Everyone was after that last spot in the final 4 but I missed the start so was under the pump from the beginning. I managed to get past the two riders in front of me putting me in second place before the guys behind tangled and both came down.  The race was stopped with both riders excluded.

This left just me and Cameron Woodward trying to get that last spot in the final 4.  Cameron got an excellent start and even though I was on his wheel throughout the four laps, he gave me no opportunity to pass so my night was over after the semi final and I finished the night in 5th position in the Victorian Senior title.

With the quality of the field assembled, I was glad to make the semi final and I’m really enjoying the opportunity to ride against some of the country’s best international riders.
