The 4th round of the MDRA 7 series proved to be rather muddy one at the Doublin Gap MX Park in Shippensburg, PA last weekend. Only one set of motos ran at Doublin Gap because of the rains and also, the Yentzer’s took into account of the rider’s bikes and being able to race the next weekend. But out of the mud, a number of riders proved that they can handle the slippery and sloppy conditions. Check them out below!
Elizabethville, PA’s Jeremy Cook is always a dominant rider at Pennsylvanian tracks and at Doublin, his smooth style and consistency earned him 2 overall wins in +25 A and Open A as well as a 6th in 250 A.
Dover, PA’s Arie Reachard was pinning his 125 all over the slippery Doublin Gap track to take a dominant win in the Schoolboy 2 Stroke class. Arie looks very, very comfortable and fast on the big bikes!
Kameron Page made his first visit to Doublin Gap in some time as he was always a regular there in the mini bike days. Kameron put his hard pack skills to work with a win in the 250 A class before the rains came in aboard his new Honda ride. (250 A was the first moto of the day.)
Casey Clark seemed to be the shadow behind Jeremy Cook all day long as he drew up a pair of 2nd place finishes in Open A and +25 A. But that doesn’t mean he wasn’t hauling. Casey is making a bid for the Junior 25 Plus class at Loretta Lynn’s and plans to attempt to qualify for the last few outdoor national rounds (which he has done a bunch of times before).
The 85 9-11 B class provided some fence-clinching action between 3 riders (Shane Desell, Logan Leitzel, and Taner Triggs). Triggs lead most of the muddy moto before a fall in a turn let Desell and Leitzel by. Desell won the moto with a sizeable lead but it didn’t come easy as Triggs definitely seemed like he had the moto.
West Virginia native Thomas Coluzzi dominated the 250 B and Open B classes both before and after the rains came in. His KTM got him through it all and looked very good at Doublin Gap.
After a crazy start to the Open C moto in the rain (a future Crash video on the way of that soon!), Tyrone, PA’s Kaleb Chronister took the win and left the mayhem behind. Chronister also finished 2nd overall in 250 C, which was the only class to run 2 motos on the day due to qualifiers.
