Raceline Pirelli Suzukis’ Marmont Shines At Home

Posted:

For Raceline Pirelli Suzuki, round two of the Monster Energy MX Nationals will be one to remember with team rider Ryan Marmont wowing his home crowd at Appin with a stellar performance.

With teammate Geran Stapleton out with a fractured sternum, it was up to the veteran Marmont to lead the charge in the MX2 class for the Suzuki backed team.

Marmont, who works six days a week, proved that hard work, dedication and consistency is what is going to put him in the best position in the Motul MX2 championship hunt in 2014.

Timed qualifying provided Marmont with a seventh position gate pick for moto one, a gate choice that would launch the Suzuki rider to his first race podium of 2014.

In moto one, the veteran of the class battled through the pack to take a third place finish ahead of his younger opponents. Unfortunately in moto two, exhaustion became an issue which forced Marmont to settle for ninth place, leaving him just short of an overall podium, ending the day with a fourth overall at round two.

Marmont, who had his family and friends behind him, felt refreshed after coming away with the result he was looking for and is excited about what the next eight rounds of the MX Nationals has in store.

"Compared to last week I'm a lot happier with my result." Marmont stated. "We made quite a few changes in the last couple of weeks and I think we've taken a step the right direction, so all in all I've had a really good weekend.

"I definitely have gotten a taste for it again, my position is where I feel it should be now at least. I'm just going to keep striving forward and keep working on things.

"In the last moto I just got to a point where I was in my own race and I felt I had a comfortable pace going, a few guys put a little bit of heat on me and I'm no young spring chicken anymore.

"It gets to that point in your life where if I'm feeling a bit tired I just tend to take it that little bit easier rather than just hanging it all out there like I once would have. I would have definitely preferred three 20-minute motos today, I just got a bit exhausted in the last moto but it was still a great day and I had a lot of fun.

The Raceline Pirelli Suzuki Team will head to Wonthaggi on the 27th of April for Round 3 of the Monster Energy MX Nationals.
