The open indoor pit area for the race fans was a great success and our set-up went down a storm. The Monster Energy Crew had the pit rocking and the buzz was on for the evening show.
It was great to have so many of our valued team Partners joining us during the day and evening and we appreciated their involvement.
With some developments made with Carl’s bike during the week, CN23 was looking forward to getting in the mix for Quali to the Main. Carl was on fire on the awesome KTM350SX throughout the evening from the gate and with his amazing ability to start he was in the mix and the firing line for some tough moves.
A strong sixth in great company in heat one set Carl up nicely for a safe ride in the second heat. Another great start and tough opening laps saw CN running fourth before a blocking move into a right hander from another rider saw Carl hit the deck. A holeshot in the LCQ wasn’t enough as he was taken out in turn one after a fully committed start once again. In Carl’s words… “Let’s get to Liverpool!”
Cyrille once again showed his skills while out on the fairly basic track. With some technical developments going on at team HQ in the preceding week on the beautiful Suzuki UK RMZ450, CC5 was immediately in the groove and playing with lines.
Cyrille has the speed to win as shown at times in Belfast and again at the LG. Two safe third place finishes saw Cyrille through to the main where the start didn’t quite go to plan. As it seems only the CC5 can do, he carved his way from the very back in just a few laps of the 12 lap Main Event to push for the podium. Although CC has made more passes than any other rider this series he decided to opt for a safe fourth after pushing for the podium from his ride from the back.
As a unit the riders are functioning well and we look forward to the continued battles in the fantastic Garmin Arenacross Tour.
Once again our Team would like to thank all our Partners, sponsors and race day assistants for their continued and valued support.
