JM-PI-2013-3

Jay Marmont say’s, “I got myself into good positions thanks to better starts and some good form but I didn’t capitalize.  Stalling the bike on Saturday cost me and then on Sunday things didn’t go my way either. I’m happy that my starts are back where they should be and my form is good, now I just need to get my confidence back to where it should be and a bit of luck my way should help with that.”
