GL12 KTM's Mike Kras has definitely had a good couple of weeks as far as racing goes! 

He went into the second round of the EMX300 championship at Red Sands, Spain looking to win motos and get his hands on the red plate championship lead....and that's only what he went and done! An immaclate 1-1 moto performance leaving the others in his wake earned him a four point lead after two rounds of the seven round series. 

Riding on a high he then came to a very different type of circuit in Culham MX Park for the opening round of the Maxxis British 2 stroke championship and repeated his performace in Spain.The result may have been the same but the circuit definitely wasn't! After much deliberation the decision was made to run the event and the track formed with deep ruts just about everywhere you went on track. No problem for Mike though, as it looked effortless and he didn't even seem to paddle through the ruts once with those lanky legs firmly rooted on the pegs. No doubt about it, he's brimming with conifrnce right now. 

It's been an indifferent start to the season for his teammate James Dunn however, who's struggled to find the form he finished 2017 with. He started off his EMX300 campaign with a solid 4-4 in the bitter cold of Valkenswaard but at Red Sands it started to de-rail. A freak engine failure just before the start meant he didn't even make the start line and then he struggled with finding the groove on his practice bike in the second moto coming in 15th. That seemed to carry on into Culham where he just didn't look himself at all in the first moto coming in a lowly 18th place and not really sure why. He seemed to find himself again halfway through the second moto though and suddenly showed race winning pace to push up to fourth by the flag. Next up for Dunny is the Michelin MX Nationals at Lyng where he'll be in the mix with four stroke 450's and 250's, where he'll be fighting for two stroke honour.
