A bit early to tell, but Troy is already looking to be on one at Fort William. After taking the win here last year despite the legendary track being notoriously known for catering to the big dogs, Brosnan is looking to back up his win again. Manon Carpenter, who recently signed with Monster rolled in fastest for the ladies. More to come.

Ratboy ended the day with an unfortunate collision with a tree.  He's ok but apparently a bit sore.  Heal up Ratty!
