Harrison Malin: I need to ride 100% each race

Wonderkid Harrison Malin is placed joint top in the P1 AquaX UK Sprint Series (Elite), with a couple of podiums under his belt.

He heads into Round 4 down Cardiff Bay, looking to edge out close rival Cameron Green.

“To beat Cameron I need to ride 100% each race and go flat out from the beginning, I need a good start and I need to keep cool and hopefully he will be looking at the name and the number on the back of my vest,” Harrison said.

“It also helps having a new ski which ive been very comfortable on and has meant i have been able to keep up with the best riders in my class.”

Thousands are expected to make their way down to Cardiff for the bank holiday weekend of racing, but those in attendance shouldn’t be deceived by the smooth surface of the bay.

Harrison explained: “When you’re racing in a bay it looks lovely and flat before the race but as soon as you get out there and a few laps in, all changes – it’s like a different location, it becomes very choppy but it’s a different chop to racing in the sea.

“With the sea you can read the waves and judge how the next few waves will be but in this type of environment it is very difficult it’s almost like a washing machine and there are waves from all over the place, its chaos!”

Harrison is supported by Line One, Avos Watersports Den, Jetpilot, RNR, Blueprint Eyewear, Aerosphere Clothing, Aysha Rensink, Jettrim, Kev-Racing and his dad.

Harrison Malin is in action on Aug 28-29 at #P1Wales. Make sure you check him out!
