Hitachi KTM’s Adam Sterry is sore after a big crash at the Lyng MXGB round on Sunday but says he is still very much in the championship hunt.
Sterry had a solid showing in the MX1 class, qualifying fourth in the morning and securing that same position in the first moto but did so in an impressive fashion after starting outside of the top five.
The second race looked even more promising for him – he started in fourth and was strong in the early stages – but a vicious fall derailed his progress. However, he remounted quickly and pushed on to claim sixth at the chequered flag.
That left Sterry in fourth in the overall classification and helped him jump to third in the championship standings – 11 points separate him from the series leader Tommy Searle.
“I had a solid day going, with fourth in qualifying and fourth in the first race. That was good for the championship,” said Sterry.
“A stone snapped my roll-offs in the first moto, so I could not really see properly after the third lap. I had a good start in moto two, in fourth, but I made a small mistake before a drop off and it resulted in a very big crash.
“I am pretty sore, but happy to walk away from that one. We are still right there in the championship hunt, so we will keep on working to be better at the next round.”
