Marcus has had a dream 2014 so far, but luck had to run out at some stage and it happened at round 2 of the RHL British national champs.
Marcus qualified 2nd, which was promising, but electrical problems in heat 1 put him in 17th. In heat 2 he was disqualified for entering the signal zone the wrong way.
Marcus then decided to ride his practice bike on day 2 which was a tough affair on the muddy track. he managed 5th, 4th and 10th, for 13th overall. This has now dropped Marcus to 8th in the series. There are still 21 heats left, so he does have time to make it up, but the pressure is on.
