Day 5 Loop, Haute-Loire / Le Puy-en-Velay / Emblavez
USA World Trophy Team
With his team eying the first place position, Josep Garcia continues to set the fastest pace in hopes to get Spain in good position to pass Great Britain tomorrow in the final day of racing. But while Garcia may be the fastest, the UK stays most consistent and remains up top lead by Nathan Watson. Kailub Russell finished as the fastest American recording Top 10 times throughout the day and keeps the USA (who is the last remaining full team of riders) in the Top 5 in the overall standings. With one last day remaining being the motocross track the Americans will need a miracle to pass 4th place France, let alone Italy as the final podium spot.
USA Junior World Trophy Team
Despite a third place overall finish on Day 5, Italy remains at the top of Junior World Trophy standings ahead of Finland and Australia. Mateo Oliveira actually recorded 3 positions higher than his older brother Dante as he chases an individual gold medal
USA Womens World Trophy Team
After yesterday's devastating news about Brandy Richards crash, the USA is out of any running for a World Trophy in the Women's category. But that won't stop teammates Korie Steede and Rachel Gutish from putting up consistent and fast times. With a nearly 15 minute lead over 2nd place France, the ladies of the UK head into the final day of competition with high hopes of winning their first ever World Trophy in the women's category.
Anson Maloney (GTBN Team)
23rd O/A Club, 7th in C2, 3rd US Club Rider
Finishing fastest on the day for the GTBN Club Team, Anson is in a good flow and ready to close out the final day of ISDE competition on a high note. As a team they sit just 3 minutes behind the 5th place Ligue AURA Team, and you can be sure they are going out gunning for a top 5 finish come tomorrow afternoon!
Anthony Ferrante (Mojo Team)
24th O/A Club, 13th in C1, 5th US Club Rider
Lone wolf Anthony Ferrante is riding consistent times very close to fellow Mojo rider Anson. In a stacked C1 class he is also eager to end with a bang and is very excited to take on tomorrows motocross track. After seeing him pull the holeshot in last years moto race we are confident he is gunning for it again this year!
Dunlop GeoMax Challenge
Classification after Day 5 shows Anson Maloney moving back down to the 3rd position of the Dunlop Geomax Challenge, with Charlie Chater having a really good day and managing to just barely get ahead of Anson, currently leading him by only 4 seconds total. Anthony Ferrante stays in the 4th place spot and certainly wouldn't mind getting a pass over his old mentor and riding buddy in tomorrow's motocross test!
ISDE France is almost at an end, and it has been a rather rough ride for the Americans, not only for our Mojo riders but some of the World Trophy riders as well. But with the final day comes a fast and fun motocross track, so we are very excited to see our boys throw down one final time for the US of A!
