From Czech Republic, we headed to Leibstadt in Switzerland for Round 6 of the 2014 4X ProTour. A Bikepark track located in northern Switzerland, this track is liked by Scott and he had been looking forward to racing here. The whole event was run on just one day here so it was important to be fired up and ready for a day of practice, qualifying and racing. Scott got it all dialled quickly. He looked fast and heading into qualifying was one of the favourites. The gate dropped on his qualifying lap and Scott was on the gas. His run was good enough for 2nd position, just 0.1 behind the fastest time.
Winning his first rounds, quarter final and semi final, Scott was in the final. Taking gate 2, the scene was set. The gate dropped and Scott had the holeshot, but into turn 1 a bang of handlebars and Scott found himself wide on the turn and in 4th position. Chasing after the other riders, Scott made up some ground but just could not bridge the gap fully. 4th in the end and again some vital points towards the overall.
So that was the end of a wild 2 weeks on the road.
The next event for Yeti Racing UK team will be this weekend when Scott and Dave will be racing at the Schwalbe 4X National Championships in Falmouth, Cornwall here in the UK. Scott will be defending his National Championship title and Dave will be looking to improve on his 4th position last year.
