‰ÛÏConditions like we had on the weekend are not easy for the MXD guys as many of the races like that they experience in juniors are often shortened or cancelled as the smaller capacity bikes can‰Ûªt get around. So, for us, we emphasized the importance of looking after the bike during the race and ensuring that we finish each race and gain points- the smartest rider is the winner here today, not always the fastest.
‰ÛÏWith that in mind, moto one went pretty well for us with Cooper finishing second and just being smart. He had a huge cap on third so he just needed to keep circulating and stay safe. Unfortunately for Cody, he went down in the first turn so he had a lot of work to do but clawed his way back to sixth by the end of the moto.
Race two and Cody just dominated. He got to the lead early and raced out to a 15 second lead and maintained that gap so it was a good rebounding ride from him and kept his championship lead on track.
Cooper is also looking good and inside the top five but when he tried to get past a lapped rider, he went off the dry racing line and into the mud and crashed. Again, it took some time for him to get going and he lost several positions. Coop is frustrated with his consistency but he has been battling some injury. He is working hard and I‰Ûªm sure the wheel is about to turn for him.
‰ÛÏIt was also a tough weekend for the guys in the team. Mike, Cory and Rob all worked tirelessly again on the weekend and their hard work is the reason for our success.‰Û
