Crash Robs In Form Jay Marmont At Mt Gambier Supercross
After showing good pace and form during practice at the 3rd round of the 2013 Terex Australian Supercross Championship at Mt Gambier, SA, Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Jay Marmont had to settle for an 8th place finish after crashing on the slick track that took many riders down.

Marmont was hoping to capitalise on his podium finish from the series opening in Darwin and was on track to do so with good form and speed in SA however it wasn‰Ûªt to be his day.

A tough start left Marmont back in 8th place at the start however he rode valiantly to claw his way as far forward as 4th with the 3rd placed rider firmly in his sights when he crashed on the greasy track. With the wind knocked from him, Marmont was unable to do any better than 8th place once he‰Ûªd remounted.

Jay Marmont‰Ûªs 8th place finish at Mt Gambier leaves him in 6th place in the championship with another 3 rounds left to race.

‰ÛÏOverall I‰Ûªm pretty disappointed." Marmont stated. "After putting in so much effort and training, it was hard to come away with the result that I did but it was pretty slick out there and a lot of riders were crashing.

"I cross rutted and came unstuck and got winded pretty good. It was a stupid crash and frustrating because I haven‰Ûªt crashed in ages. After I remounted I just couldn‰Ûªt close the gap.

"There are still 3 more rounds to go though so I just have to focus on those, stay positive and come away with the best results I can.‰Û
