The Australian Trophy team was down to 5 riders after day one so when Jarrod Bewley’s stator fried early on day 3 their hopes of a podium finish were dashed. To make matters worse, they lost another Trophy team member when Josh Green’s Yamaha expired later in the day.
Taylor Robert was making a push towards the overall lead at the ISDE on Day 3 when disaster struck–he sucked dirt into his KTM and was given 9-minutes of trail time penalty for being late to a check after taking time to get it back running.
Kailub Russell’s 3rd day saw him finish as the 3rd fastest E2 rider and more importantly he kept his KTM 350 alive and the American Trophy team’s hopes along with it.
Thad DuVall is quietly putting in a very solid ISDE sitting 10th overall.
Aussie Josh Strang had his best day of the ISDE finishing 2nd in E2 and 3rd on the day.
Gary Sutherlin was one of the few bright spots in the Club division for the USA as a lot of riders dropped out due to mechanical issues. Sutherlin now leads the Club overall by 3-minutes over Andrew DeLong.
French Trophy Rider Pela Renet leads the overall by over a minute and the French trophy team–with all 6 riders still intact–has a 16-minute lead over the American Trophy Team.
Grant Baylor finishes up during his work period at the end of Day 3. The younger Baylor currently sits 38th overall and the American Junior team has a 26-second lead over Australia in the team rankings.
