MDK KTM Factory Rider Nick Wey Finishes 7th in the Mud at San Francisco

1/29/2008

 

 

San Francisco, CA – The weather forecast called for rain, and rain came. As the riders gathered their protective gear and tried to shield themselves from the showers, so did the fans at the nearly sold out San Francisco venue.
 
The crowd stood on their feet and pumped their fists in the air as the anthem was sung and the fireworks exploded marking the start of the fourth round of the highly anticipated Supercross Series. 

 

MDK KTM Factory rider Nick Wey lined up for Supercross Heat #2. Wey had a 10th placed start off the gate and managed to move quickly into a qualifying position. He rode consistent and smooth and stayed in a qualifying position throughout the heat moving his KTM on to the roster for the main event. 

 

The rain seemed to be waiting for the Supercross main. Just as the riders took off from the gate, the rain picked up and began to pour on the already soaked crowd and track. Wey had a mid-pack start coming around 11th on the first lap. He quickly moved into the top ten and began to close in on the pack ahead. Riders were crashing everywhere and Wey was cautiously avoiding them as he continued to pick up speed. It seemed the more the rain fell, the faster Wey got! Throughout the shortened 15 lap main, Wey battled with Grant Langston, Eric Sorby, Heath Voss, Tim Ferry and Ivan Tedesco. It was Tedesco that would give him the greatest battle of all. On the last lap Wey had caught Tedesco who was currently running in 6th and began to inch closer trying to get a wheel on him in every turn. On the second to last corner Wey was half a bike length away. It was here, that Wey picked it up a notch and came side by side with Tedesco down the straight. With one turn to go before the checkers Wey came up on Tedesco but came just inches short of making the pass as they crossed the finish line. Although Wey finished 7th for the night, he showed his aggression is back and he will be “Ready to Race” with the leaders as the team heads back to Anaheim for Round 3.
