JDR KTM Supercross: Coming to America 4

KTM Supercross

Here’s JDR / J-Star / KTM’s fourth video "Coming to America," a series which displays the Australian AMA Supercross teams efforts in the 2011 AMA Supercross series.

Episode four is a video tutorial showing the team at Round 2 of the SX schedule at Phoenix. In the main Supercross event, JDR / J-Star / KTM rider Ryan Marmont struggled after a crash and eventually finished in 17th overall.

The Australian Supercross rider, known for his good starts, didn’t disappoint in his Lites heat. Marmont nearly pulled the holeshot in his heat race before rounding the first turn in second place.

Marmont eventually finished the race in 3rd place after holding off a large pack of riders for his qualifying position.

The second rider for the JDR/J-Star/KTM Supercross Team, Tye Simmonds, improved upon his performance this weekend but came up a few spots short of the main event gate.
