Day of Frustration for CDR Yamaha

1 Jul 2014

Round six of the MX Nationals at Swann Hill will be one that the CDR Yamaha team would like to put behind them as fast as possible as both riders didn’t post the results they are capable of on a frustrating day for the factory Yamaha team.

Billy Mackenzie rounded out the day in sixth place with two sixth place results, while Jay Marmont came home in 12th.

The day promised so much for Mackenzie and after qualifying fourth fastest in the GoPro Superpole, he was feeling confident of a good performance. In race one he was well placed off the start and inside the top three when he fell from his bike and dropped down the field. He charged back to sixth place but the result could have been so much better.

Race two and Mackenzie hit the front as the field exited turn one. He led them around until he stalled the bike in the early stages and again dropped several spots. Again he battled hard to move through the field before again finishing sixth.

With six rounds in the books, Mackenzie sits in fifth place in the MX1 championship.

Jay Marmont also endured a tough day finishing well down the field in race one after a first turn crash before bouncing back to a respectable eighth place finish in race two. He finished the day in 12th place and sits ninth overall in the championship.

“It wasn’t one of our best days,” states team owner, Craig Dack. “Billy got himself into good positions in both races only to make costly mistakes and waste what could have been. He has been around long enough to know those mistakes cost you championships and he really has some work to do now if he wants to get back into the battle.”

“Jay did pretty well in race two but a first turn crash in race one ruined his day.

“I’m not real happy about today’s results as this team and these riders are better than that but we will keep fighting and be back stronger for the next round,” Dack concludes.
