Also new to the team was Wyatt Fogarty. Wyatt‰Ûªs migration from motocross was flawless as he powered his Husqvarna FC250 to the top step of the podium and blew away the competition in the quarter liter class finishing a very impressive 18th outright. Not only proving his own speed but also the reliability of the bike having the bike screaming for 4 hours in an unfair advantage to the bigger 450‰Ûªs and 500 power plants. ‰ÛÏI only jumped on this bike a month ago, and felt at home straight away, I can‰Ûªt thank Rochey and Joel (Stafford) enough for the opportunity to get this ride"
More podiums were still to come Sunday in the form of Kyle Simpson in the up to 250 2/S class. Hot off his impressive Finke result, the young gun proved he has the speed and his Finke result was no fluke on his Husqvarna TE250. Still only fresh out of juniors with plenty of growing still to come Kyle is well on his way to establishing himself as a future desert champion.
Not to be outdone, Anthony Venn also made his way to the last step on the podium in the 251 & Over 2/S on his Husqvarna TE300. ‰ÛÏI had a couple of issues with the bike at the half way mark, but we managed to overcome that and get the job done. I can‰Ûªt thank the pit crew enough‰Û
