06 Mar BSB Round 6 – Double Podium for 6D Riders
6D Riders Billy McConnell and Alex Olsen both raced to a double podium at the Brands Hatch Circuit in Kent.
Billy bounced back from the disappointment of crashing out of Saturday’s race to take yet another fabulous race victory.
Alex Olsen had one of the strongest race weekends for a while, securing two great podium finishes for Astro Van Centre BMW. Alex is going from strength to strength is is hoping to push for a race win at the next round at Thruxton.
Billy McConnell, “The crash in race one was a weird one. Honestly it felt a little like I hit something because I tucked the front in a place I’d not had any problems or movement before, even when on a really fast lap, so it was a weird one. I felt I had the pace that race and today’s, but after crashing at Knockhill I rode a little more conservative. Today I tried to make a break before the final lap as I knew it was going to be a last lap battle as the group was strong. It didn’t turn out to be a huge break but it gave us enough. I’m looking forward to Suzuka now. I’ve always wanted to do it so it’s a great opportunity with a great team, and I’ll definitely be bike fit when we get to Thruxton.”
