KTM RED BULL THOR FACTORY RACER JESS PETTIS EARNS A SOLID SET OF POINTS AT A2

Written by  KTM Factory Racing on Monday, 21 January 2019 12:55

Chambly, QC – KTM Red Bull THOR Factory Racer Jess Pettis leaves Anaheim 2 with 11th overall in the Triple Crown main event standings and looks forward to improving his position in the upcoming race in Oakland, CA on January 26th.

With the technical Anaheim track causing problems for many riders out there, Pettis finished just outside the top-ten overall with 11-13-10 Main Event scores. In the first Triple Crown formatted event of the season, Pettis remained consistent throughout the night to earn valuable points in the overall championship.

Jess Pettis – KTM RED BULL THOR Factory MX2 Racer: “A2 was another good and consistent night of racing for me. It was difficult with the triple crown layout and being low on energy due to having the flu late in the week. But I was happy to get 11-13-10 moto scores for 11th overall and had a lot of fun out there battling with everyone.

Jean-Sebastien Roy – KTM Red Bull THOR Factory Racing Team Manager: “What a difficult track here tonight. Probably the most technical I’ve seen in a long time. It was a 3 main events format which made it even more challenging. Jess was riding very well, and we’re improving the set-up of the bike each time. His goal is to finish inside the top 8 and I believe he will achieve that in the next race or two.”
