On the last stage of the Merzouga Rally I had made a half decent race and got lost a few times along the way which is pretty normal in rally racing! The last part was super tricky and the notes were hard to understand but starting 4th and making the finish line first and I moved up from 5th overall into 2nd overall. Because around 12 people got lost in this section and people complained about the roadbook they have now cut the stage from waypoint #90. So just had a meeting with them and the exact same thing happened to me and lots others on day one because the roadbook was not correct and hard to understand (which they just sat there and said this straight to my face that day one had a incorrect note where many got lost) but my time and others where not given back. Not sure how this was fair, we all had the same roadbook, nobody was at an advantage or disadvantage just like we all had on day 1, plus in rally racing it’s impossible to make a roadbook 100% accurate so I’m not sure why can stuff like this can get changed because a few getting lost. Racing will now have protests everyday cause there is always one wrong note in a roadbook! I feel like if makes me look like a clown posting that I got to 2nd and now I’m back to 6th overall. Sorry everyone, I thought I had made a good day but it’s a room of 8 people that can change the result at a snap of their fingers. The organisation will see this and not be happy that I posted this but I’ve gotta explain the situation and the results because I’m sure the results won’t be changed back to the correct way because of this post, but that’s how and why the results changed in 8hrs time.
Day 1 loosing some time, one note got me messed up and lost around 12minutes trying to find the way! That’s rally for you! Onto the next day, full gas ✊🏻

I couldn’t wait to start the rally here in Morocco so @kinmarcinphoto and myself went out at 10pm last night for a little more practice in the dunes! Always wanted one of these shots 📸
Joe and myself are lining up for another run in the desert here in Morocco at the Merzouga rally! Testing some new parts on the bike and changing up the suspension.
Almost time to moto again! Looking forward to trying to tame this beast 👌🏼
Floating on the roughest ground with ease! TSCO Racing and SDG shock setup have this truck dialled and on point, so lucky I get to drive this truck thanks to Jesse Jones!
Abu Dhabi one week, Mexico the next!
Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge is done and dusted! Ended up with 7th overall which is not the best result and not what I should be doing. Day two with the crash and fuel pump killed me, but It’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes! Next race up is Merzouga Rally, time to get on the podium! Big thanks to the team and supporters for following along, I’ll make the next one better!
One more day to go! It’s been good riding but a rough run with a crash that resulted in breaking a fuel pump! ⛽️
This shows you the terrain that we are in and the drop-offs that are catching loads of riders out! My back is still killing me but we keep trying to push and get some good result and today we come across in 2nd for the stage! I’m happy but bummed this is the way I’ve started the World Championship, but we will keep fighting!
