It was another day of close battle for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing’s Michael Mosiman, who came away with a solid runner-up finish at the Denver SX.
Today’s track conditions were tricky as many riders experienced, and our guys were no exception! Mosiman got off to a strong start in his heat race, placing his MC 250F into the top-three early on. Three laps in, Mosiman made his way into second and he immediately made a charge for the lead.
Unfortunately, the slick track got the best of him and he went down. Re-mounting in fourth, he clawed his way back up to a second-place finish. In the Main, Mosiman got off to a fourth-place start and he immediately went to battle for a podium position. Blitzing through the whoops to overtake third, the NorCal native set charge for the lead battle between championship contenders Hunter Lawrence and Christian Craig. Capitalizing on a mistake by Craig, Mosiman slid into second early on and he maintained a strong ride for the rest of the race to secure his second runner-up finish of the season.
“It’s so good to be racing here in Denver, and the fans are awesome! I got off to a pretty good start. Those guys were battling, I was battling, and it was a little bit of chaos out there. I was trying to watch out for the booby traps, but it was fun though! I’m just trying to focus on myself, taking what I’ve learned here and apply it next weekend. I’m looking forward to it.”
