Budds Creek, MD - The DNA Energy Drink/BTO Sports.com/BBMX team has been tackling the outdoors with only two, sometimes three, riders but this weekend at round ten of the AMA Motocross the team finally had a full stable. Missing riders Kyle “The missing” Keylon and Shaun “Mr” Skinner both came back to join our rookie sensation, Lucas “George” Crespi and veteran Jason “Doubting” Thomas.
Skinner did real well all things considered when he came from a first turn crash all the way to fifteenth in the first race. The second moto, in the gooey mud, Skinner was running tenth before suffering a front flat. Thomas had some mechanical gremlins strike (we poured water on it but the gremlin got all bumpy and mad) in the first moto but when everything got real crappy, that was when JT shone through. His sixteenth in the second moto was a true testament to his ability to persevere.
But just when we think everything’s going our way, Crespi crashed in practice and broke some bones in his foot and Kyle saw a reoccurrence of his medical mystery problem. “We think things are going to turn around for us this weekend because our mechanic, Dan Truman, found $250 on the floor at a restaurant and ended up giving it to the unsuspecting lady that dropped it” remarked team manager Forrest Butler “So hopefully, the karma gods will be with us in the sand this weekend.”
This weekend the race is in Southwick, Massachusetts, and if you’re at the race, swing by the semi for a DNA Energy drink or an autograph.
