Fresh from a couple of weeks mixing business with pleasure in Australia, Dyer and Butler KTM’s Jamie Law will be heading to Culham Park in a week’s time eyeing up a career-first Red Bull Pro Nationals podium finish.
The 26-year-old from Cockermouth on the Cumbrian coast lies fifth in the MX1 standings and is considered a threat every time he lines up behind a startgate. But amazingly he’s yet to get on the box at a Red Bull Pro National.
“I know, I know, I need to do something about that,” says Jamie. “I’m feeling good on the bike and with Dyer and Butler KTM I have a great team behind me which takes the pressure off. It means I don’t have to worry about spannering so I can concentrate on riding. We keep taking steps in the right direction and there’s no reason why I can’t be on the podium – it’s down to me now.”
Jamie was in Oz for a holiday and to race the legendary Manjimup 15,000 motocross where he finished third behind the Aussie factory KTMs of Todd Waters and Kurt Gibbs.
He’s still to complete a full Red Bull Pro Nationals season having abandoned his 2011 campaign to take up a ride in the Aussie Nationals and then jumping ship halfway through last year’s championship after getting a GP fill-in ride with STR KTM. But this year he means business and is aiming to go the distance.
“I really enjoy the Red Bull Pro Nationals – they have a great feel. It’s relaxed and you get lots of track time and the races are slightly longer which I enjoy. Culham’s good – I’ve been there with other series and not really enjoyed it but I was there for the final round in 2011 and it was like a different circuit. You look after the tracks well for the Red Bull Pro Nationals and always get the best out of them.”
