Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Hill Earns MXGP Points At USA Round in Florida2017-09-04 11:42
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Justin Hill earned points during his first MXGP outing at WW Motocross Park in Northern Florida. The hot and humid day mixed with deep sandy ruts proved challenging for all the riders, and Hill eventually tallied an 18-28 moto score for 22nd. Teammate Adam Cianciarulo started the weekend with high hopes of closing out the year strong, but an injury at the start of the weekend kept him from racing on Sunday.
With the vastly different schedule from the Pro Motocross weekend, Hill had to adjust to a new format of racing that included an additional qualifying race on Saturday. He qualified 22nd in that 20 minute plus two lap qualifying race. On Sunday, He overcame a start outside the top 20 to break into the points to finish Moto 1 in 18th. When the heat and humidity was at its worse, Hill was riding strong in Moto 2 well inside the top 20, but was pushed down the results after being told he cut the track. Hill still was able to score 22nd overall even with the difficulties he faced.
“The different format is a lot more riding and racing, which is an adjustment,” said Hill. “It was unfortunate to be docked in Moto 2 because I felt at my best all weekend, but it is what it is. I had a lot of fun representing all our sponsors in front of the world.”
