We are now heading into the final half of the 2019 season. How has the season gone so far for you? Has there been any highlight moments?

At the last round you had a strong weekend at Fatcats for the third stop of the Official British Youth Motocross Championship. How was it for you? Can you talk us through the weekend for you?
