CREO SX Debrief: Plenty Of Positives To Be Extracted From The Team’s First SX Of The Season

Off track:

I want to give props to Marek and Sean for professionally working over the motorcycles so I could tend to the pit, manage hospitality, engage with fans, and perform the custodial busy work – if a broom is in my hand that means the plan is working perfectly.

Jorgen and Tyler delegated social jobs off to myself and their mechanics to get all the good content, which we strategised to keep them focused on riding.

We had a couple moto influencers and micro celebs set up shop with us thanks to The Collective Experience, and it brought more folks into the Bolt pit for photos and fun.

I cannot overstate how RIGHT the vibe was in our pit. Special thanks to Luc and Tarvo for providing food for the team, which kept spirits high.

On track:

Holy cannoli was I impressed. The track was absolutely cannibalised by the time 250 group C took to it, and the guys persevered through the gigantic ruts in practice and Q1. Dirt Wurx prepped the course up before the 250 groups went out, and though it wasn’t perfect when we started circulating, the track was fast and solid.

Jorgen set a burner for P22, and Tyler iced it for P34 – putting both men in the show. I was doing cartwheels the whole way back to the trailer and we had a big celebration when we all got back. They did everything just right.

I was so jubilant when I saw it before us, my long play bearing fruit! Bringing these guys into the states in October, the adversity they overcame in AX, the team building and bonding, learning American style race craft, all of it. I took a chance and bet on myself to be able to develop these guys into being SX weapons.

In the night show Jorgen and Tyler were both in the same heat, and JMT had a great pick and a phenomenal drive going into the first corner but got pinballed off the track. Tyler got pinched out of the gate and the both of them took the opportunity to get more laps in on the treacherous track. The LCQ went about the same, but I think we all felt that the goal of making the night show was achieved and we needed to walk before we run.

I believe both these riders are main event capable. This is a first for the team.
