Shane Watts GNCC ReportFriday, May 18, 2007 | 5:59 AM
Fun Mart Cycles/Maxxis/cyclehutt.com team rider Shane Watts endured a tough day at Rd. 6 of the 2007 GNCC series held in dry and dusty conditions at Millfield, Ohio over the past weekend.
Entering the race with a severe bout of the flu, Watts was reduced to having to make his best attempt at trying to salvage some Championship points on a day where he was far below being able to perform at his best. Following a decent start Watts was relegated to the rear of the field when another rider collided with the rear of his YZ250 whilst he was stopped in the bottleneck that formed in the second corner. Once mobile again Watts struggled with being able to push anywhere near his normal pace due to a head full of congestion that not only affected his breathing but also more importantly his balance, and perception of the upcoming trail.
