MotoConcepts Unadilla Wrap-Up
Tommy showed up in Unadilla injured. He popped his shoulder out twice the week prior to the race. Tommy did good in practice despite the incovenience of an injured shoulder on a demanding track like Unadilla, he was 8th and 7th fastest in the 2 practice sessions. After a bad start in moto 1, Tommy was only 22nd after the first lap and 16th on lap 2 when he dislocated his shoulder again landing in a braking bump. Tommy will need to get surgery to fix this problem he’s having since several years and we might not see him race again this motocross season…
Jake showed up in New York determined to improve his results. His practice times showed it. Jake was 11th fastest in qualifying, his best so far this season. Bad start for him in Moto 1 too by finishing the first lap in 30th position. Jake rode a strong moto and caught up to 11th. Top 10 was a realistic goal but when he got in Kyle Regal’s wheel he was missing a little “juice” after his big charge to catch up. In moto 2, the start wasn’t much better being 22nd on the first lap. Jake caught up to 14th and finished the race at the same spot. His moto scores of 11-14 gave him a 10th overall! JC592 can still do better and we’ll use the weekend off to be even more ready for the last 3 races.
Ben was 17th fastest in practice and couldn’t get a top 30 start in both motos. Are you serious Ben? He crashed a couple times and finished the first moto in 21st. His second moto was way better. He was far back at the beginning but charged all the way to the finish line to get 15th. Same as for Jake, Ben will have 2 weeks to improve his speed/technique/fitness to finish the last 3 races of the season strong!
