The Pro Stage started high in the open moor above the Tweed Valley and heading down into the tight, steep and dark woods. With the trees so close and wet roots lining the track there was little room for error. A heavy storm passed through as the riders dropped in for the race, making visibility a challenge but actually improving grip on the track by washing some of the sticky mud.
Morgane had a clean run in the rain, riding the river down the track to find the grip she finished in a great 3rd place, less than 2 seconds off the race lead.
Matt and Bernard both had great runs, pushing hard through the horrible conditions Matt finished 10th. Bernard attacked the stage as he would a downhill run, fully committed he posted a brilliant time for 14th on the stage and well and truly at the business end for Sunday's full day of racing.
