Lakewood, CO (June 8, 2014) – The BTO Sports-KTM-WPS race team headed to Thunder Valley MX Park for the third round of the 2014 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Lakewood, CO.  With Matt Goerke returning to action for the team and Andrew Short returning to his hometown track, the team was fired up for Saturday’s race.

 

Andrew Short  was on the gas during practice, as he found the fast line around Thunder Valley to post the 8th fastest time of the day.  With his hometown fans cheering him on, Short blasted out of the gate in Moto 1 and used the traction from his Pirelli Scorpion MX tires to round the first turn in 6th. From there he started quickly to the front, moving in to the 3rd by the end of lap one. He would battle fiercely at the front of the pack and would hold on to take the checkered flag in 6th place.

 

In Moto 2, Short would have his work cut out for him as a mid-pack start had him working his way through the field. He would ride strong all moto, battling from outside the top ten to racing his way to 9th place by the end of the moto. His 6-9 score would give him 8th overall at the end of the day

 

Matt Goerke didn’t waste any time as he took to the track for the first time during the Outdoor season, posting the 11th fastest time in practice. In Moto 1, Matt utilized the power from his FMF Racing 4.1 RCT exhaust system to get a good start, rounding the first lap in 13th. From there he would race solid all moto, finishing 14th.

 

Moto 2 Matt would get another great jump out of the gate and by the end of the first lap would be in 10th place. He would hold strong all moto, only sliding back to 16th by the checkered flag. His 14-16 score would give him 15th overall.

 

“My weekend was good”, Andrew Short said of his race. “I was happy with the first moto, but second moto didn’t go as planned. Things are progressing and I am looking forward to High Point.”
