Harry has shown us that he is a constant qualifier for the finals at the World Cups and that he is able to get close to the best riders in the World. Today in Windham, Harry did not do his perfect run and managed to get to 50th position. He is still on a solid 47th overall position in the World Cup. This is what Harry had to say after the race: "I knew I had to go flat out strait out of the gate, but it took me half of my run to get up to speed, that cost a lot of time on such a short track. I will be good to go home for three weeks, for some good preparations and turn up to La Bresse with fresh mind. "
