In what essentially turned out to be an indoor mud race at Round 1 of the Rockstar Energy Triple Crown Series in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Team Rockstar Energy/OTSFF/Yamaha’s Matt Goerke and Dillan Epstein battled hard for podium finishes on Saturday night. Unfortunately, their six/seven results in the final did not reflect the efforts they put into the task aboard their potent Yamaha YZ450Fs.

 

Due to track building scheduling, numerous truckloads of dirt – compromised by rain and snow – weren’t dumped inside the Abbotsford...

El Hombre Starts Strong  /  Jan.8.2018

“This was a rather smooth day,” said Anderson. “I was able to get a good start in the heat race and then got the win there. Then I was able to make some good moves in the main and work my way up to second. I think it was a good opening round and it puts me in a good position for the rest of the season.”

“This has been my best GP for the season and I’m really happy about it. I’ve left it for a bit late maybe, but I made some changes coming into the weekend. I always knew the speed was there but I always felt like something was missing during the season. Now I found it and this is where I need to be. I liked the tests here in Germany and I was well-prepared for the GP. I got faster and faster as the weekend went on and that was really positive. I’m really happy I got the win on Saturday. On Sunday I had two crashes early in the morning so I knew it would be a struggle to catch back...

Max Anstie: “The weekend started really well for me. I had a good qualifying moto and managed to get the win. It might have just been a qualifying moto win but it was my first race victory in the 450cc class. On Sunday we had a lot of rain and that made things harder for everyone. I did the best I could in the opening moto. Conditions were tricky and it was vital to avoid mistakes. I was happy with fourth and thought I could do even better in moto two. My start was great in the second race and I managed to lead the for much of the race. I had a good battle with Herlings down to the...

“All in all it was a good day,” said Osborne. “It definitely could have been a little bit better, but I’m happy to come away with a podium. That second moto was high stakes, and I’m happy I got a top-five and come away with another podium. I’ve only missed one podium the entire season, so I’m just trying to keep that trend going. I hope to carry some momentum in Budds Creek—it’s a track I really enjoy and I look forward to it."

“Unadilla is an awesome track,” said Davalos. “Everyone was watching the weather coming. They didn’t disc the track really deep like they normally do here because of the weather. I think it was a good call because it down poured during our first moto. It started around the third lap and there was a lot of lightning. I did my best, but the struggle with the goggles was difficult with the amount of rain we were getting. We lounged around for awhile before the second moto because we didn’t know what time we were going to go. I got a decent start and just put my head down. I stayed...

Gautier Paulin: “I’m really happy to be back on the podium. We had a big fight for the overall win here in Switzerland and eventually I ended up sharing the same number of points with Jeffrey Herlings. It feels good to be back up to speed and I can’t thank my team enough for all their hard work and dedication. The pace was high in both motos. I got two good starts and that was positive. It also felt great to be leading the second moto for some laps. Overall, this GP has been a big step in the right direction and I will keep pushing to take this momentum into the coming...
