World Supercross – Race Recap – Cardiff, Wales


World Supercross made its debut this past weekend in Cardiff, Wales. Pipes Motorsports Group is one of ten select teams from across the globe bringing Supercross to the world stage. The series got underway in excellent fashion with a huge crowd and an exciting new race format.

PMG rider Derek Kelly had a standout performance in the SX2 class with 7th overall. He had great starts and put himself in a prime position every race. Freddie Noren had an impressive ride in the WSX class with 11th overall. His best race came in the second finale with 9th place. Dillan Schwartz, one of the field’s youngest riders, had a commendable ride with 18th place in the SX2 class. Justin Starling had an unfortunate get-off in the opening race; he was forced to double a triple and a rider a few paces back tripled the jump landing on Justin in the process. Fortunately, Justin only sustained a ligament tear in his thumb. He showed his grit and determination, suiting up for the following two races to score points for the team.

Awesome day in Cardiff, I had some really good starts, I had the 13th gate pick for each race, I rode very consistent. I'm happy with it overall. I'm looking forward to going back home and getting some more intense riding in to prepare for Australia.

Solid round; I ended up P7 on the night. Definitely a different experience with 3 main events and no break in between. It’s something we want to see grow. Defiantly a great thing to add to the sport. I am excited for the next one. The track was super tight and racey it promoted passing. I am excited to see how Australia will be.

Pipes Motorsports Group heads back to California for a short break. The team will utilize its time between rounds to keep improving going into the next Championship. The team will be Down Under, in Melbourne Australia, October 21st-22nd. Australian motocross fans along with fans from across the globe will be flocking to Marvel Stadium. This World Supercross Championship will feature the Australian supercross series round that same weekend.

As it stands, P.M.G. currently stands 7th in team points and is looking to climb that ladder in the finale World Championship for 2022.   

See you in Australia!
