Payson, UT (June 22,2021) – The Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS team returned to racing after a week off for round three of the 2021 Pro Motocross Championship at the historic High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, PA. It was solid day for the team as Joey Savatgy earned a 9th overall with Justin Bogle right behind in 14th overall.
Joey Savatgy launched out of the gate in Moto 1 and completed the first lap inside the top 10. Joey rode with aggression as he found himself battling for position in the top 10 for most of the race. After opening up a gap and securing his position, the ImageSource Inc. supported rider crossed the finish line in 8th place at the checkered flag. In the second moto, Joey started outside of the top 10 and worked his way up to 10th place by the halfway point. He hit his marks and the Alpinestars supported rider finished 9th, earning 9th overall for the day.
“I felt good today. While my starts weren’t there, I charged through both motos for solid finish. It’s the best I have rode all year. We will continue to build momentum into Red Bud in two weeks..”– Joey Savatgy
Justin Bogle did not get a good start in his first moto and slotted himself just outside of the top 10. He had the pace and was starting to move closer to the top-10 spot when he went down. After making a stop in the mechanic’s area, Justin worked his way back up to 16th place at the end. Justin was on the gas off the gate in the second moto and rounded the first corner in the top 5. The Jstar Auto Group supported rider kept the pace, and rode to 13th place at the checkered flag to earn 14th overall for the day.
“Today was a challenge. After going down in the first moto and a pit stop for new goggles, I rode hard to fight back to 16th. It was my downfall, however as I ran out of steam in the second moto. We are getting better, my riding is better and moving forward. I’ll take this week off to work on a few things and am looking forward to Red Bud!-Justin Bogle
The team takes a week off before celebrating the 4th of July weekend at Red Bud MX in Buchanan, MI for round 4 of the 2021 Pro Motocross Championship.
