The Atlanta Motor Stadium hosted the fifteenth round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross on Saturday night, with Garrett Marchbanks cleaning out Cameron Mcadoo in the 250SX main event.
The Club MX Yamaha rider has since received a bunch of abuse via social media, Including death threats after the take down in the Georgia stadium.
“I know a lot of people have been waiting to hear about what I have to say after the incident that took place on Saturday night in Atlanta.” Explained Marchbanks.
“Now I’m not going to sit here and lie to everyone and say that I didn’t mean to make an aggressive move on Cameron, I did, and it’s obvious that I did. I fully intended on making an aggressive move solely because I was cross jumped multiple times, I let my emotions get the best of me because of the red flags, and I honestly felt like he was a hazard at the time.”
“This has nothing to do with Cameron being on a Pro Circuit Kawasaki bike, Only how I felt about him as a racer during these last couple of rounds at the time. I don’t wish injuries upon any racers and what I did could have easily done exactly that.”
“As I stated before I’m not asking for sympathy but I do ask if the death threats towards myself and the people in my life could end. They can’t control what I do on the track only I can. So right now I’m going to take a break from social media to gather my thoughts and learn from this mistake before the last round of the Supercross.”
