Press Conference Quotes from St. Louis

 

Ernesto Fonseca

 

“It’s been tough. It has been a while since I’ve been up on the podium. I think the tracks on the east coast are tough. Hopefully, I’ll gain a little bit of momentum and start doing a little bit better.”



”It helps your confidence. Things just start getting a little bit easier and I’ve started riding better as well. I think it’s mainly the confidence that has helped me.”

 

“I’m trying to improve on my weaknesses.”

 

“I’m looking at the way I’m riding and how I can go faster. I also watch the guys who are ahead of me and seeing where they are making up time.”

 

“I got a pretty good start. Then Ricky passed me. When he crashed in the whoops, I was surprised. “

 

“I was just consistent. I capitalized on someone else’s mistake and that’s pretty much how I won the heat race.”

 

“The first lap, I over jumped the tunnel jump by a mile. In the air I was thinking I probably was going to crash but I rode it out. Chad passed me there and then I passed him back. “

 

“James and Ivan had a pretty good pace going. So, I was just trying to stay close to them. I then started inching away slowing and I just tried to stay consistent after that.

 

“I saw that there was a big gap between me and the fourth place rider. So, I tried to stay cool and not make any big mistakes. “

 

 

Ivan Tedesco

 

“I felt really good the first half of the race. I rode really well for the first eight laps. Then, I started riding a little tight and once you start getting tight mistakes start to happen and you get even tighter.”

 

“I rode good the first half of the race and that’s the only way you learn by leading a race. I’m happy about it and hopefully I can keep getting good starts and ride up front even longer.”

 

“I just started thinking instead of riding.”

 

“He (Chad Reed) had a good pace going and I started making some mistakes and he got away from me.”

 

“I’ve been getting better and better every weekend. I’ve been learning. These guys have a good pace going and their good every weekend no matter what the track is like. I’m just learning from every weekend and my goal is to win one of the races this year.”

 

“I’m just going to keep doing what I’m doing and not change anything. I’ll just learn from my mistakes and go on from there.”

 

“When I was in the lead, I had no idea what was going on behind me. I was just riding my race. I had no idea who was in first, second, third or fourth.”

 

“I didn’t realize until lap fifteen when Chad went by me and I heard the crowd go crazy. I figured someone went down and then my pit told me I had a big lead on third.”

 

“You have to have realistic goals. Then once you achieve those goals, you set a higher goal. My goal is to win one of the races sometime during the year. That’s my goal and we’ll see if I can achieve it”

 

“I thought it was a good race track tonight. It kept everyone on their toes. It definitely was easy to make mistakes with the ruts.”

 

“I was bummed at the beginning of the season because I felt I wasn’t living up to my potential. Things have definitely turned around for me the last couple of races. I feel I’m riding like myself again. I’m becoming more aggressive and not just riding around.”

 

 Chad Reed

 

“The night was not bad. The day was tough. I had an unbelievable week at home. I felt I improved a lot on things I had been lacking.”

 

“I got to the first turn during the first practice and had some bike trouble. I was so mad, that it affected me the whole night till the main event.”

 

“I’m just so happy to have done the rhythm section. Everyone was asking me what I was doing and I was like I don’t know what I’m doing. So, it was a nice feeling to get out there and to start putting some laps together.”

 

“I knew I could do it. I never gave up. That was all I had; belief in myself because my on track performance wasn’t showing a whole lot. So, I just went into the main event knowing that I could do it and I had to do it.”

 

“I’m happy that I got it done tonight. It was a tough track. Some of the sections were really good dirt and then in other sections were really rutty. So, you had to be on your toes.”

 

“I knew I could do it. I just wasn’t doing it. There was just some mental block that wasn’t allowing me to do it. So, I went for it and found it was easy. I was so mad when I did it because I was thinking to myself why it took so long to actually do it.

 

“I enjoyed the dirt, the change was nice. I had a good time. I never felt the pressure from anybody coming up. I didn’t know where anybody else was. I knew when I got into second, James was there but that was it. I just looked forward and rode my race.”

 

“The championship is far from over and I know Ricky and James are going to fight back. I’m just going to fight with them and have a good time.”

 

“This was my most important win of my career. I had so much pressure on myself and I felt three hundred pounds lighter after I saw the checkered flag.

 

“When you know you can win and everybody around you knows you can win. It’s tough to go home during the week and go why do I feel so good here and then be so pathetic on the weekends.”

 

“It’s nice, I’m extremely proud of the team for sticking by me.”
