Having had no practice on the superstock bike, Daley wasn't sure how the race would pan out. The team made an educated guess at setting up the bike and headed to the grid. Daley was low down the starting order due to lack of qualifying. Conditions around the mountain course were less than ideal, with high winds affecting many of the fast sections of the course. Daley headed off for lap 1 and quickly realised, that he was going to have to compromise due to the set-up not being perfect. It was to be a long and hard fought race, battling the winds and soft set-up. However, he still managed to work his way through traffic on the road, gaining valuable time in pitatop and then crossing the line on the last lap, in 23rd place with a bronze replica to add to the collection.Return to news
