Win and new European ET record!

Jonnie ended the season giving us a monster burn out, and didn't stop rolling until the 1000 feet mark.

Unfortunately Gareth got some problems after the burn out and had to shut of and roll back, giving Jonnie a solo run.

—Now when we have the championship, we don't just go for consistency any more. We're going for faster consistency! Jonnie says with a confident smile.

Jonnies opponent in the final is rookie Gareth Ellis, who pulled of a 6.57 pass in his solo semi final.

But now we got a race to win!

_DSC0273

Jonnie had a solo in this first round. He chose to go out first and took the opportunity to win a new track record. 5.51!

 

_DSC0295

In the round after, we saw Johan and Rob. Johan away first, but then once again hitting a massive shake. He pedaled and drifted towards the center line, pedaled more and couldn't keep up with Rob.

Rob Turner is through to the semis. Up against Jonnie.

The guy that finished of Leif and secured the Championship win for us, Gareth Ellis will go against...
