Aaron Yates Speaks… 6th place in race 1 & 3rd place in race 2
"That was a long, cold, wet race," said Yates. "We had a small chassis issue during the race thahung with me the whole time. We set the motorcycle up a little stiff, hoping the track would dry out, but it didn’t work out that way. That made it challenging to ride in the full wet, as the bike was overly stiff.
