Points Lead and Podium for CDR Rockstar Energy Drink Yamaha

31 May 2010

The CDR Rockstar Energy Drink Yamaha Team of Jay Marmont and Cheyne Boyd continued their run of podium finishes with Boyd taking third place in the Pro Open division of the Rockstar MX Nationals held at Raymond Terrace over the weekend.

Despite not having his greatest day, Jay Marmont remains rock solid and increased his points lead in the overall championship standings.

With each passing round Cheyne Boyd has been saying he has felt better on the bike and improving his race speed. That again proved true when he produced his best finish to date in 2010 with a third place overall on the back of some excellent riding. Boyd has had a solid start to 2010, but things went up a gear at Raymond Terrace and the likeable Victorian was on a mission to get to the front.

“I just believed that my efforts during the week would reward me on the weekends. And while it has been some time coming, it feels good to get up on the podium and back up to speed again.”

“Today was a good result but I still think there is more left in me for the remaining rounds. I also want to thank the CDR Rockstar Yamaha team for their patience and energy in getting this result,” Boyd states.

Jay Marmont recovered from a sluggish start in the morning to charge home with a second in the final moto. His combined scores of 7-6-2 were enough to snare fifth on the day but the big picture is far more pleasing as Marmont has stretched his lead to 13 points over Tye Simmonds in the overall standings with three rounds remaining.

“I just need to get on my game earlier in the day. The past couple of rounds have not seen me at my best early and then I am able to pick it up later in the day. I just have to work on some race intensity in practice to fire myself up as soon as I hit the track.”

“But congratulations to my teammate Boydy for making the podium and the entire CDR Rockstar Yamaha team for their continued support,” Marmont said.

Despite not dominating like 2009, CDR principle Craig Dack still sees the positives from the Raymond Terrace performance.

“It was great to see Boydy up there this weekend. I know how hard he works and getting on the podium for the first time will give him plenty of confidence. For Jay, it was a tough day for him yet he still increased his lead in the championship. It shows he is a fighter and if we can just get him up and running for those early motos, I think we are looking great for another strong championship finish,” Dack explains.

The Rockstar MX Nationals now move to Albury-Wodonga in three weeks time for round six of the eight round series. It’s down to the business end of the championship and both CDR Rockstar Yamaha riders are well placed for a big run home.
