Another Win for Crevier at AMP
Steve Crevier qualified "Motopotamus", his MotoSport Plus sponsored XR1200X in second position and took another hard fought win at Atlantic Motorsport Park this past weekend. Steve was shut out of pole position by Deeley's Darren James, who posted a qualifying time of 1:12.804 , just under Crevier's time of 1:13.005.
The MotoSport Plus crew spent Saturday evening working to improve the performance of their XR1200X with further adjustments to the K-Tech suspension, knowing that the other teams would be working hard for improvements as well. A spring and chassis geometry change paid immediate dividends in the Sunday morning practice session, but it was clear that other teams had not been resting, with young rider Cody Matechuk topping the timing charts for the morning.
The race was held in near perfect conditions on the 2.5 km long track just north of Halifax. Up-and-coming young rider Cody Matechuk and Crevier spent the first half of the race in an intense battle for the lead, until a mechanical problem forced Matechuk out. James, still healing from injuries suffered at St. Eustache, put in another gritty ride to second, while Chris Harmon continued his progress to the front of the pack to finish third, after a mid-season switch to K-Tech suspension. Crevier's teammate Dan Thomson finished 11th, capping off a weekend of progress on his XR, nicknamed "Dynosaurus".
