Vampires Rock at the Red Bull Pro National first round
With Scooter Webster still out with a broken hand and no 50cc class it was down to David Keet on the BW 85 and Ozzie Murray and Jack Grayshon in the Junior 65 class to fly the flag for team Vampires Rock KTM.
After a good first race David Keet was riding well and battled his way from a bad start up into the top 10 in moto one. In moto two things were looking good as Keet moved up into 4th spot with the top three in his sights, then disaster! Keet took a fall breaking his leg. After an overnight hospital stay Keet is feeling good but very disappointed as you can imagine. David says I’m so gutted that I have let the team down and the sponsors but I will be back. We all know this happens in motocross but still only 15 years old David has a great future ahead of him. The decision has been made to concentrate on the 125 class when David comes back to the team after his recovery period.
Ozzie Murray and Jack Grayshon both rode superbly all weekend in the 65 class. It was the youngsters first Red Bull and very daunting for the 8 year olds but they did great.
We had no great expectations for the two boys, only to do their best and try as hard as they could against a much older and experienced field of riders.
42 riders took to the gate Jack came home in the top 20 in four of his races with a 15th place in the third moto. A DNF in the last moto of day two put Jack in 21st overall. Ozzie the youngest rider of the team managed to score points in all five moto’s, finishing in the top 30 and now lying 32nd overall but his sites are now set on the top 20.
The weekend will see the team back at the GT Cup for the 3rd round of the National.
Thanks for all the support and we hope to bring you some podium finishes at the next championship
