Britain’s Max Anstie secured another points finish at the third Atlanta Monster Energy Supercross outing over the weekend and believes he is making steps forward.

Anstie, who is in his rookie year, again impressed with his quick adaptation to the 450 Supercross class. After a 15th place start in heat two, Anstie put on a charge to pass seven riders and earn a direct transfer to the main event.

A mid-pack start in the main hampered the fast racer’s progression up the results board, but a strong ride gave Anstie better footing in the premier Supercross class with two more rounds remaining in the season.

“The track was definitely tough, but we’re learning. We’re learning each time we’re out there. The team and I are definitely making steps forward,” said the Twisted Tea Suzuki rider.

“I would have liked to have been further up, obviously, but we pushed as hard as we could. We’ve just got to go back to the drawing board and get ready go again for the Salt Lake races.”
