How hard is Harri Kullas? After breaking his shoulder blade in a mountain bike crash at the end of last month, the Cab Screens Deos Group Racing Honda rider rolled up at Canada Heights to defend his MX Nationals lead – and he came away with an even bigger advantage!

Riding through the pain barrier, the Estonian went 9-10 for eighth overall and now leads the MX1 championship by 42 points.

“I believe we had great weekend considering my condition,” he said. “I did all I could after breaking my shoulder blade and it was enough to hold on for two races and get valuable points. Goal was to get any points we can and to get 23 points was like a win. I think we are in a good spot for the last two rounds.”

Team boss Lee Webber praised his rider. “To have come away from Canada Heights and extend our championship lead is quite remarkable and something we didn’t see coming,” he said. “What a phenomenal effort from Harri – that just shows his commitment and what it means to him to win this championship.”
