As we suspected Gareth Swanepoel did a lot better this weekend at the 2nd round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series in Phoenix. Gareth took the transfer position in his qualifying race by coming 6th and in the final to 17th.
Other South African contender Tyla Rattray has had a phenomenal start to the season by taking 2nd overall in last week’s opening round and now a 3rd in this weekend race putting him in the championship lead over Cole Seely in 2nd and Dean Wilson in 3rd.
We can’t wait to see how Gareth improves through the season and if Tyla’s consistency will earn him the number 1 plate. We wish both riders the best of luck and just know that SA is behind you!
