Herfoss takes double podium at US Supermoto

Posted:

Another round, another podium result for Husqvarna‰Ûªs Troy Herfoss at the fifth round of the AMA Supermoto Championships held in Nashville over the weekend. Competing in both the premier Supermoto Class and the Unlimited Class events, Herfoss had a hectic race schedule however this did not stop him from taking pole position in the Unlimited class before backing up to take the Supermoto Superpole win, almost one second ahead of Championship leader Jeff Ward. As the natural light faded and the track lights powered up, the stage was set for Herfoss to record his finest Supermoto result. The first race of the Supermoto class saw Herfoss bolt to an early lead with KTM's Jurgen Kunzel in toe. Herfoss led for the first 12 laps before coming into lapped traffic. Kunzel made his move and took the lead before Herfoss came off second best after a collision with Kunzel‰Ûªs lapped teammate put an end to hopes of taking his first AMA premier class victory. Not letting the events of the previous race upset his nerve, all the while nursing an injury from the crash, Herfoss backed up for the Unlimited class final. Sitting third in the Championship, Herfoss was looking for a consistent ride to keep him in Championship contention. After leading for six of the twenty lap final, Herfoss was passed by Baffeleuf and eventually settled for third position. The result was enough to keep him in Championship contention, with only a six point gap between Herfoss and championship leader David Atkins. Minutes after returning from the Unlimited Class podium presentation, Herfoss was back in the saddle of his Husqvarna SM450R for the premier class final. Herfoss again showed why he is the talk of the paddock, the 18 year old Australian lighting up the composite track in the pursuit of race leader Jeff Ward. Ward would eventually take the win with Herfoss following him every step of the way to take his second premier class podium. "Competing in two classes at this level is very demanding, physically and mentally. I‰Ûªm a little drained but to come away with two podiums and two poles (positions) is great. I still want to win one of these (Supermoto Class) though." A weary Herfoss reported late in the evening. Main Photo: Troy and crew on the podium
