Alan placed 2nd at Rye House in round 1. A good start to the season on a track that historically hasn’t been his strong point. He had two 1st’s and a 3rd in his heat races giving him 1st choice on the grid for the final. In the final there was issues with riders creeping and the start not being held, Alan missed the jump off the line. He charged hard and pulled in the gap to the leader Aidan Collins but couldn't move into the lead. Round 2 is at MCN Festival Peterborough on May 12th.
