Salt Lake City, UT- With the conditions outside being more like the North Pole than a normal supercross, the BTOSports.com/BBMX/Palmetto Suzuki Supercross team that is based out of Florida was just a tad bit out of its element this past weekend.
As usual, our privateer hero Jason Thomas dominated the 450 LCQ to secure his spot in the 450 main event. By our count, this makes it about 392 LCQ wins on the season for Thomas and we wish he’d make it easier on us by making it though the heat but that seems to be his lot in life.
In the main JT fought through the muck, rain and snow to finish a solid sixteenth. A mid-race stop for goggles definitely didn’t help things.
Troy Adams made the jump up to the 450 class last weekend and was doing pretty well until he decided to clear the triple without his bike. The resulting crash left him bruised and battered but he was out there again this weekend on a big bike.
Troy had a steadier main event than Thomas and would place in twelfth on the night. Adams is going to forgo the 250 East/West Shootout this weekend to stay in the 450 class and hopefully, unlike last year, his pants stay on.
Bobby Kiniry is our New York rider and we thought he’d be right at home in the conditions but Kiniry had to make it through the LCQ (like his hero Thomas) and therefore was assured a crappy start. He worked through the pack as best he could and when the flag flew, he was thirteenth and he ended the west series in fourteenth.
