Results from Gopher Dunes round 6
The famous Gopher Dunes track didn’t disappoint last weekend, putting the riders to the test in some of the toughest conditions possible. The warm and humid weather, mixed with the sandiest track on the circuit were not enough to stop the ClubMX Redemption racing team from claiming yet another podium and keeping both Josh Osby and Joey Crown in the run for the 2018 Jetwerx MX Tour 250 championship. After the rider’s meeting, I shared a devotion about how we are what we think and the power of our thoughts and what they can turn into for our lives. You can listen to the full devotion here:
Josh Osby displayed great sand skills this past weekend and finished 4-2 for 2ndoverall. It was Josh’s best performance to date and these great results put him right back in the fight for the championship lead. In moto 1, Josh didn’t get the best start but still made his way up to 3rdby mid-moto. After a multiple lap battle, Osby crossed the finish line just one position shy of the podium, in fourth place. After the moto was complete, the team quickly realized that the #18 machine needed important attention. We worked until the last seconds to bring Osby to the line in time for 2ndmoto. Josh made it all worth it when he started in front of the pack and pushed really hard for 17 laps to finally get the checkered flag in a well-deserved 2ndplace.
Joey Crown was having a really great first moto, sitting in 2ndplace and looking really comfortable in the super sandy conditions when around halfway, he made a mistake and ended up on the ground. After getting back up on his bike, Crown was able to finish in 5thand headed back to the pits to regroup. The 2ndmoto was a mix of ups and downs for the #335. Joey got a good start but experienced multiple crashed that set him back every time he was making ground on the top 3. After finishing 5thin both races, Joey ended up with 6thoverall on the day, leaving him only 10 points away from the championship lead.
Eric Jeffery was really consistent this past weekend, going 17-17 for 17thoverall. Eric had some great battles in the first moto, gaining and losing positions almost every lap, to finally cross the finish line in 17th. The 2ndmoto was a lot more positive even though the results were pretty similar. The #39 got a bad start that placed him in 26thon lap 1, but fought his way up one position at a time and gained 9 spots to get the checkered flag in 17thplace again. After missing 1 round, Eric now stands in 14thplace in the Jetwerx Mx Tour 450 championship
