It was Eddie Jay Wade’s first meeting onboard the KTM 125cc for the Hitachi KTM Fuelled by Milwaukee, which was the opening round of the EMX125 Championship at Matterley Basin.
We caught up with Eddie following the opening round at Matterley to see how the day went for him.
“Started the weekend good going first in free practice, but then in qualifying couldn’t get a clear lap but managed to get 9th. I got a good start for the first race coming out about 6th in the first corner, managed to get to 3rd in the first lap then the front wheel got full off mud and fell off while I trying to make a pass for 2nd.
Lost about 2 minutes trying to get going again, worked my way up to 16 and had to stop for googles, then worked my way up to 10th. I was very happy with my riding just got to limit the mistakes, will take the positives and get ready for tomorrow.”
