Rouse Leads Triumph Triple Challenge After Thruxton Win... News From Chrissy Rouse

CHRISSY Rouse now leads the Triumph Triple Challenge after winning Sunday’s race at Thruxton.

The 17-year-old Geordie led from Lap two of the 12-lap race to take the win ahead of Phil Atkinson, with Daniel Fuller third.

Rouse had qualified third on Saturday on his Stratstone Triumph Racing machine, but was disappointed after heavy rain in the afternoon forced race chiefs to postpone the first race to a later date, leaving him with just one race this weekend.

At the green light he had a tentative start and dropped a handful of places to sixth, but quickly picked up his pace and had made two places back before the pack crossed the line at the end of the first lap.

Moments later he made a move on Fuller for third, before searing past Freddy Pett who was lying second and Atkinson in one move to take the lead.

He quickly put a gap between himself and Atkinson, but by Lap Five Pett had moved into second and closed in behind him. But as they reached the chicane at the end of the lap, Pett touched Rouse’s rear wheel and crashed out.

From here, Rouse maintained his lead, coming under a little bit of pressure from Atkinson, but his rival never got close enough to make a serious move, and the teenager kept the lead all of the way to the chequered flag.

He took the win and 25 points to move to the top of the championship.

"I’m so happy to get this win, especially after such a long weekend," he said. "I was a bit disappointed when yesterday’s race was postponed because I wanted a wet race, but obviously safety has to come first and the decision to cancel it was the right one.

"I had another slow start but I was quick to recover from it. Once I’d passed Fuller I knew I could get into the front, so I made the move and took Freddy and Phil in one go.

"A few laps later I felt something on the rear wheel when Freddy hit me, but I didn’t know who it was or even how many were behind me so I just put my head down and concentrated on keeping in front.

"It was quite a hard race but I knew on the last lap that if I could just keep it pinned I could win it. It’s a great feeling to win the third race, and take my third podium of the year.

"The field is very strong this year, so I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but I’m so happy and relieved to end the weekend with the win.

"Now I am looking forward to Oulton Park in a few weeks’ time. Thruxton has never been my strongest of tracks so to get a result here is fantastic, and now I will be looking to build on this lead in the championship."
