Consistency keeps Sam Martin in PIrelli MXD Championship contention


Posted: Tuesday, 17th April, 2012 : 11:34 AM - - 5,531 Reads




Another consistent days racing by GYTR Yamaha teamster, Sam Martin, at Conabarabran has left him well placed after two rounds in the Pirelli MXD class at the Monster Energy MX Nationals.

Still gaining strength and fitness after his pre season shoulder injury, the young Victorian competed well on the weekend on his way to 4-5-5 results and sixth place for the round.

The MXD class was tightly contested with the top six riders qualifying within a second of one another before that carried over into racing with again the top six finishing within nine points.

Martin showed great speed and barnstormed his way home in each of the three legs but was hampered by bad starts which left him mid pack in the opening laps.

"My starts were terrible today and it let down what was a pretty good day on the track. I felt strong out there and my speed was good but I can't afford to give the other guys a head start like I did today."

"We have two weeks until the next round and I will be practicing plenty of starts and being a little more aggressive in the opening laps," Martin said.

After a third in round one and a sixth in round two, Martin now sits in fourth place, just seven points out of second and 25 from the lead with a lot of motos to come.
