Nathan Ramsey Survives the Mud and Takes the Win in San FranciscoMonday, January 30, 2006 | 1:42 PM
San Francisco, CA – January 28, 2006 – Nathan Ramsey showed the
range of his competitive talents by riding through the heavy mud and
rain en route to his second win of the 2006 Amp’d Mobile Supercross
The weather proved to be the deciding factor in stop number four of the 2006 Amp’d Mobile Supercross Series with the track getting doused during qualifying, setting the stage for a muddy final. While the mud proved to be too much for many of the other top riders to overcome, it was no match for Ramsey’s prowess as he rode his way to victory before a crowd of 37,557. The victory gave Ramsey his second Supercross Lites win of the season and cemented his lead in the overall point’s race. Ramsey now has a five point lead over second place and an eight point lead over third place.
“It was such a fun race, it was one of those dog paddlers," said Ramsey afterwards, describing the legs-off-the-bike riding style he used in the muddy conditions. "We had a bad go of it in the first (heat) race, so winning this really makes everything okay." The win gives him a total of sixteen career victories, just shy of the all-time record. An energized Ramsey already has his sights set on next weekend, where the series makes its final stop in Anaheim.
Nate would like to thank his sponsors: KTM, Red Bull, MSR, Oxtar, Utopia, HJC, and Red Button Seven.
