The Gopher Dunes track is one of the toughest on the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals circuit and it definitely took a bite out of all three team riders. Paul and Bobby Kiniry both got top five starts but had multiple problems and crashes. Kiniry rode to a solid sixth place despite his problems and Paul Carpenter rode to an eleventh after three hard crashes. Jack Carpenter crashed in the first turn and rode to a 21st position after multiple crashes as well.
The second moto started much better after Paul secured a top five start and quickly moved into second position. After following the leader for a short time, he capitalized on a mistake by the leader to make a pass and won the moto by sixteen seconds. Jack Carpenter rode to an eleventh place finish despite a poor start and finished in eighteenth overall. Kiniry struggled with consistency in the second moto and finished in ninth position for eighth overall on the day.
Heidi Cooke won both motos in the Women’s class by a wide margin to continue her win streak. Cooke has won all six motos of the Women’s class and continues to show her dominance in her quest for the championship.
The Monster Energy Cernic’s Kawasaki Racing Team will travel to Ste-Thecle, Quebec on July 25-26, 2009 for round six of the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals.
