BRECHIN biker Ryan Watson remains third in his class despite a disappointing weekend at Oulton Park.

AS part of Team Appleyard Macadam Racing Ryan competes in the Motostar 125 class.

Hopes were high that he would be able to match his second place finish at Oulton Park earlier in the year or even go one better.

As it turned out he had a below par weekend.

Unfortunately for Watson, the rain on Friday left him going into Saturday and qualifying with limited setup and he paid the price, ending up 11th on the grid.

Sunday saw bad go to worse as he bogged the bike on the line leaving him right at the back of the field by the end of the first lap.

He then showed his true potential battling his way through to cross the line in fifteenth place, which still leaves him third in the championship.

Ryan will return to action at Brands Hatch this weekend.
