Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki's Josh Demuth and Troy Adams Ride to Top Five Finishes in MonctonWednesday, August 4, 2010 | 9:45 AM
Huntington, TX - Riverglade MX Park in Moncton, NB hosted round seven of the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals where both Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki riders finished in the top five. Troy Adams finished in fourth and Josh Demuth took home fifth overall on the day.
Troy Adams rode to a fourth place finish in the first MX1 Pro moto after rounding the first turn in eighth place. He eventually worked his way up to fourth for a pretty uneventful race. His second moto was filled with much more excitement. After another top ten start he worked his way into fourth position again. This time he had time to catch the third place rider, Bobby Kiniry. The two American motocross riders had an intense battle for the last half of the race. In fact, the two exchanged spots multiple times on the last lap of the race. Adams came out on top to take the last spot on the podium.
"I felt pretty good today and had a great battle with Bobby," said Adams after the race. "I had a lot of fun and I want to keep this momentum going into the last two rounds. Unfortunately, my first four rounds weren't up to par but things seem to be working good for me now."
Josh Demuth came into Moncton hoping to improve on his fourth place overall standing in the series. Despite getting the holeshot in both motos he struggled to find his pace and scored a sixth in moto one and fifth in moto two.
"I finally got those starts that I've been struggling with," explained Demuth. "Getting the holeshot is great but today was a tough for me. For some reason, I couldn't get the bike setup correctly and had problems getting in a groove. I'm disappointed with how I rode but I'll come back even stronger next week to try to move up in the championship points."
Josh Demuth continues to hold onto fourth in championship points with only three points separating him from third. Troy Adams' fourth overall helped him move into ninth position in the championship.
The Monster Energy Cernic's Kawasaki Racing Team will travel to San Del Lee in Ashton, ON on August 8, 2010 for round eight of the CMRC Monster Energy Motocross Nationals.
