Anderson Goes From LCQ To Podium
Hard as nails Anderson recovers from a crash mid-air after stalling the bike on the gate drop. Climbing up to 12th on lap one he encountered another setback when a rider landed on him mid-air and caused them both to go down hard and he ultimately missed the Main Event transfer by one spot. Lining up in the LCQ, he wasted no time getting out front where he charged his way to a 30-second victory.
In the Main Event, Anderson proved to be a man on a mission as he swiftly climbed from an eighth-place start up to fourth early on, positioning himself to overtake a podium spot halfway through the race. With a hard-fought effort, he locked in third to secure his second podium finish of the season.
“Today was pretty stressful,” Anderson said. “It started out amazing and I felt like everything was going smooth, and then I stalled it on the gate for the start but I was able to come back and ride good. I was lacking a little bit of energy at the end but I feel like my speed is good and my riding is really well so I’m excited.”
