Muc-Off Honda Racing team’s Oldenburg tests the waters in the 450 class

Round eight of the FIM World Supercross Championship proved a busy night for the Muc-Off Honda Racing team.

The team's 250 East Coast rider, Mitchell Oldenburg took on the 450 class as he stepped in for an injured Justin Brayton. Oldenburg looked confident early, setting lap times inside the top 20. Unfortunately, his starts let him down and he didn‰Ûªt make the final.

‰ÛÏWe were fast enough to be in the final, but I didn‰Ûªt capitalise on my speed. My start in the Heat race wasn‰Ûªt where it needed to be and I battled for 11th. In the LCQ (Last Chance Qualifier) I came together with another rider on the first turn and had to make my way back from 15th. It was super sketchy and I could only manage a 6th. In all though it was a great experience and I hope to do it again at some point.‰Û

Mitchell Harrison‰Ûªs debut for the team on the CRF250R resulted in a missed opportunity for a strong finish. After a crash whilst battling for 6th, the young rider ultimately finished 14th.

‰ÛÏThis is on me; I was impatient and I crashed trying to make a pass. My times in the final were okay but I struggled in some areas of the track. I am glad we have two weeks until Daytona and I am thankful I didn‰Ûªt hurt myself in the crash.‰Û
