Lakewood, Colorado - The hills of Colorado and elevation of 6100 feet greeted the DNA Energy Drink/BTO Sports.com/BBMX race team when they showed up to do battle at the latest round of the Lucas Oil AMA Motocross Championship. Team riders Jason “Solar Radar” Thomas and Kyle “Tall glass of water” Keylon were both amped and ready to try their best.
Keylon in particular has been having so much bad luck that we sent him to a doctor to see if he had any black cat DNA in (or on) him as no matter what he tries to do, he’s been at the back and certainly the first moto it seemed that it was more of the same when he ended up 35th. The second moto, however, was a thing of beauty as Kyle ripped a massive start on his WMI-tuned CRF 450 and ran in the top five for a little while before finishing 12th. It’s Kyle’s first points of the season and we hope it’s a sign that his talent, luck and speed are all coming together. “I felt great out there and now I know how fast those guys go and what I need to do to get up there more often. The starts help a lot and my WMI motor ripped me up the hill like a pack of wild silverbacks” said Keylon after the race.
The teams other rider, Jason Thomas got tangled with some other riders in the first moto and finished just out of the points coming from the back. Second moto he did what he always does, just rode a steady pace and picked off rider after rider late in the race to get a 16th. We rewarded his hard work with a DNA Energy Drink after the race in hopes that it will get him pumped up for the start next week. He’s like a little puppy, when he does good he gets a treat!
This weekend in honor of our countries birthday, stop by and get a free DNA Energy Drink and maybe, just maybe you can talk to one of our riders.
