Josh Green bought his YZ450F home in second place in the premier E2 (450cc) division after the championship wrapped up.
Green came into the final rounds with an ankle injury sustained at the recent A4DE and was obviously below his best but soldiered on all weekend determined to hang onto a podium position in both class and outright honours. Unfortunately, he just slipped off the podium in the outright finish but managed to hold his second place in the E2 class.
‰ÛÏI knew this weekend was going to be tough as my ankle isn‰Ûªt 100% but I tried to do the best I could with what I had. I‰Ûªm not too disappointed as a felt I did as well as I could over the weekend, although it would have been nice to finish in the top three Outright, as I had been in contention all season.
Stefan Granquist matched the results of Green, also taking second place, but in the E3 (over 450cc) division. Granquist was looking good on Saturday and heading the E3 field before he had a big fall and damaged his bike. Sunday also wasn‰Ûªt kind to Granquist but he was able to maintain his WR in second place for the E3 championship.
