Team Monster Miss Out On Pairs Gold

Jun 052016

Team Monster Energy fell short in their pursuit of the Best Pairs title by the smallest of margins – a tyre puncture! Heading into the final round in Ostrow, Poland our team of Greg Hancock, Chris Holder and Tai Woffinden lead the overall standings but knew that a win in the event itself was the only guarantee of lifting the championship trophy, and they were only denied by a slice of bad luck. After the 21 qualifying races Team Monster were tied on points with Team ePort 2000 and Team Nice and the only way of splitting them was to check on who had the most bonus points - and with a retirement for Greg Hancock in his second race, due to a puncture, it was the boys in green and black who were the unlucky ones and were then denied the chance to race for the overall title.
