Husaberg FE501-mounted E3 representative Jarrod Bewley would be quick to agree that he struggled to find the perfect setup for Penola‰Ûªs unique combination of whoops, sand and pine forest racing, and only managing eighth Outright, though he would have to be satisfied with another pair of seconds in the big-bore class behind tearaway leader Glenn Kearney.
‰ÛÏSaturday started off pretty slow and I just struggled with my setup for the track a little bit." Bewley commented. "It took me the whole day to feel comfortable on it.
"I tried a little bit of a different setup but it wasn‰Ûªt great. I finished eighth outright and second in class, the same as today, but today I felt a lot stronger. I found a better setup and stuck with it all day.
"I felt a little bit more comfortable, but eighth is definitely not where I want to be ‰ÛÒ I‰Ûªd rather be further up front. Close racing is always hard racing and you‰Ûªve got to be on your game, you can‰Ûªt be going there with questions in your mind about your setup.
"That‰Ûªs where I struggled this weekend, and it showed. Now I‰Ûªm looking forward to Hattah and the next AORC round where I can try to get back up there," he concluded.
