Tristan Purdon Rides to Victory at SAMXN RD1

Feb 192018

This weekend Rover MX in Port Elizabeth saw the first stop of the SA MX Nationals go down and our boys Tristan Purdon and David Goosen were there kicking off the season in full force. Competing amongst a stacked field of riders, all hungry to gain all those points with a win. Tristan however, being no stranger to a challenge, fought his way through the pack into a 1st place spot in MX1. Setting him up right where he wants to be going into the second round in Pietermaritzburg.

“I was just on a roll and made those last three passes into the top spot in one lap!”

 

"Rover was a tough one but we made it happen. I had a really bad start in the second Moto and ended up in the 8th spot, from there I just put my head down and managed to climb up to fourth. By that stage, I was just on a roll and made those last three passes into the top spot in one lap! I'm super happy." Tristan Purdon

David Goosen battled Rovers notoriously sandy track but just couldn't get the flow he was looking for. Finishing the day in 5th in both MX1 and MX2. Mentioning he'll be back for round 2 in Pietermaritzburg, ready to gain some points.
