Josh Demuth moves into a third-place tie in the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals
HUNTINGTON, TX – June 23, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The unique location at Wild Rose MX Park in the heart of Calgary presented riders and fans with a spectacular view of the city skyscrapers. Monster Energy Cernic’s Kawasaki rider Josh Demuth rode to a third place overall in the CMRC Monster Energy Canadian Motocross Nationals and Troy Adams finished sixteenth after a hard fall in the first moto.
In the first MX1 Moto, Adams came around the first turn in fifth while Demuth was stuck around tenth position. Once again, Demuth impressed everyone in attendance with his charge through the pack eventually finding himself in fourth with Adams following right behind in fifth. However, towards the middle of the moto Adams took a fall in a high speed corner and could not immediately remount his bike. Just after Adams’ fall, the leader of the race, Colton Facciotti went down in another high speed area of the track causing officials to red flag the moto. Since the moto was past the half-way mark, race officials called an end to the race. Demuth was officially scored in third with Adams unable to mount a comeback in the shortened race to finish thirty-seventh.
Demuth started the second moto inside the top ten and made several passes to move into third position. In a similar fashion to last week’s second moto, the leaders were too far ahead by the time he secured third spot so he settled into a comfortable pace to the finish. Adams had a good start in the top five but his wrist was still bothering him from his first moto crash. Despite the pain, he rode to a twelfth place finish to salvage important championship points.
“The track was definitely tough today because of all the ruts that formed,” explained Demuth. “I am feeling more comfortable on the bike and we’re improving the setup with each moto. I should be up with the leaders but my starts are holding me back so I need to go back and work on that. Hopefully, I can get some starts so I can start pushing towards the championship in the second half of the season.”
Demuth’s finish in Calgary moved him into a third place tie in series points entering round four at Morden’s Shadow Valley Raceway on June 27.
