Jay Marmont rode well at Toowoomba to secure his 2nd podium finish of the 6 round SX series. After a mid pack start, Marmont rocketed to the lead group on the first lap. After jostling with Jake Moss throughout the race Marmont eventually wrapped up 3rd place for the moto.
Jay Marmont’s points haul from the round left him in 4th place overall for the series.
Jay Marmont say’s, “It was a great way to finish off the year. I felt good all day. I didn’t get the best start but I really trusted my Dunlop tyres into the first turn and was able to charge and came out in 4th or 5th. From there I rode well to finish in 3rd place. It was really good to finish on the podium again. I’d really like to thank Monster Energy Kawasaki, my sponsors and fans for their support throughout 2013. I’m looking forward to 2014.”
Current Canadian MX champion, Brett Metcalfe was unlucky in Toowoomba with crashes relegating him to 10th. Entering the championship mid way through the series, Metcalfe finished in 13th overall.
Monster Energy Kawasaki team manager, Troy Carroll say’s, “It was great to see Jay back on the podium where he deserves to be. It was a good finish to the year. I’d like to give a big thanks to all of Monster Energy Kawasaki’s sponsors and Kawasaki staff for their support throughout 2013. There’s no way we could’ve done it without them. We’re looking forward to bigger and better things in 2014. See you next year.”
