Well done to Mitch Lewis on taking on the Apico 2 Stroke Festival this weekend and smashing it on his new Yamaha YZ:
"After 4 months of no riding we decided to go down and race at the Apico 2 Stroke Festival and make a weekend of it. We arrived ate Friday night to an amazing sunset and a freshly made track.
On Saturday I qualified 2nd which gave me good gates all weekend long which I was really pleased with. I good a good start in race 1 but unfortunately came together with another rider and wrote off my front wheel!
I was really frustrated but we managed to source a new front wheel in time for race 2. I got another good start in the second race and worked my way to the front. It was about 4 laps and I had a small 'get off' but when I picked the bike up I found the front brake had locked on. After pulling over to the side of the track I removed a stone from the front brake cylinder but I then had a lot of work to do and managed to pull back to 7th.
Sunday was a much better day! We had had rain overnight but woke up to sunshine and the track was in perfect condition.
Race 1 I managed to get the holeshot and from then on I lead from start to finish, it felt good to get the race win again!
Race 2 I had a top 3 start but I pulled some moves out the bag and got myself to the front of the pack. I had some heat from behind mid race but I managed to keep it on 2 wheels this time and bring home the win!
Overall Saturday was not a day to remember by any means but Sunday was much more fun!"
