SCOTT Athletes Weekend RecapTuesday, March 26, 2013 | 10:40 AM
The Supercross series headed to Canada last weekend. The Rogers Center was host to the 12th round of the series and offered a larger-than-usual layout for the track builders to work with. As a result, the racing action was exciting and as action packed as it gets.
250SX East Class
Levi Kilbarger was the top SCOTT 250SX athlete, earning a solid 14th overall finish in the main event.
Next up was SCOTT athlete Zack Freeberg, who finished just behind Levi in 15th.
Pro Circuit Rookie and SCOTT athlete Justin Hill had a rough night. Hill crashed hard in the 250SX main event and was unable to finish the race. SCOTT Motosports would like to wish Hill a speedy recovery and hopes to see him back on the line soon!
SCOTT goggle athlete Andrew Short was the top 450SX class finisher, scoring a hard-earned 9th in the main event.
Next up was Phillip Nicoletti, who continues to improve week after week. Nicoletti finished the 450SX main event in 12th place.
Another rider who continues to do well was SCOTT athlete Justin Sipes, who finished the main event in 17th.
The next round of SX heads to Houston, Texas on April 6th.
Bobbitt Podiums in Texas
Husaberg Factory rider Russell Bobbitt was able to salvage a respectable 2nd overall in this week’s third round of the National Enduro Series in Texas. Bobbitt, who is known for his consistent riding style, had a few small crashes in the third test that cost him the overall. He finished just 6 seconds shy of the win. Factory FMF / KTM rider Charlie Mullins was able to hold on to his points lead, despite a small mechanical issue. Charlie showed his usual speed all day, and looks to regain some points when the series heads to round 4 in April.
Caselli wins and Kamo takes points lead
SCOTT athlete Kurt Caselli took his first win of the season at the Rabbit Creek 100 Hare & Hound race in Murphy, Idaho, last weekend. Caselli came from behind and methodically picked off multiple riders during the first loop and eventually made the pass for the lead during the second loop to take the win. SCOTT athlete David Kamo finished in 3rd place and overtook the points lead with his podium. The next H&H takes place April 13th in California.
