Doug DeHaan Set for a Showdown this Weekend for German SX Championship

Hello Internet Visitors,

 

I would first like to say thanks for visiting the web site, as I finally was able to drop a race recap in from Germany. Things are shaping up nicely.

 

I just finished a good weekend in Dortmund. On Friday night I won both my qualifiers. In the main event I started out fifth and moved up to third and finished close to the leaders at the end. Saturday, the main began poorly. I got caught up on a rider and a hay bale in the first turn, then later in the race had a mid air collision with Shane Metcalf the Aussie rider, I didn't go down but my hand was smashed pretty bad by his handlebars. I finished up in sixth which was good enough to take the points lead into Sunday's race.

 

The last main of the weekend Casey Johnson and I came out one-two and it stayed close the whole main. I was a little faster in the whoops but couldn't make the pass into the next corner... so with that completed race there is a one-point gap with two main events to go.

 

The next race is in Keil, I have won there before (in 99) and will have to win again....should be a fun weekend...!!!
