Big "AL" Returns to the Super Series

8/8/2021

 

 

Round 9 of the Super Series brought out the infamous Big Al (aka Troll, aka Alex Martin) to launch his YZ450 to victory in three classes as he tries to race himself back into shape after his broken arm put a major hitch in his season.   He was certainly ultra-competitive at the local level as he romped to six moto wins.   Shockingly enough, he is old enough for the 30+ class!  Where have the years gone?!!  

 

The Spring Creek track was in good shape with a lesser number of ruts as the lack of recent rain left a drier base, but the crew kept up watering throughout the day to minimize dust and all was well.   Rider entries totaled a bit over 450 so there was good competition throughout the day.  The track was routed to go up a bit of Mount Martin so that was a bit of an extra for the day.

 

Jaden Rolbiecki roosted down the start straight to lead the 250 C class around the first turn as moto 1 was launched.   Zaine Randall was in pursuit and took control in short order to lead the way.  Rolbiecki lost ground gradually as Randall pounded out the laps.  Byron Setzepfandt Alex Rasmussen were in a battle over third and closed in on Rolbeicki in the late stages and while Randall crossed the line with a good sized lead, second through fifth were fairly close at the flag with Rolbeicki, Setzepfandt and Rasmussen leading Jaydon Nyeggen as they finished off the moto with a last shot over the Holy Schmit jump.

 

Nyeggen surged to the front as moto 2 started but Randall was close by and swept by for the lead.  Nyeggen held onto second with Rasmussen and Rolbeicki  in pursuit a couple of seconds back until the halfway mark when Rasmussen nabbed second place.   Unfortunately he took a digger right at the start of the last lap and dropped back a few spots while Rolbeicki, Nyeggen and Setzepfandt cruised on by.  Randall went on to win quite handily while Rolbeicki maintained his way for second and Setzepfandt dropped Nyeggen back to fourth later in the lap for third, then Rasmussen got by to drop him back to fifth before the flag waved.

 

Bentlee Walker charged out front in moto one of the 85cc 9-12 class and found that Caleb Wagner was eager to replace him as the leader.   Lap after lap they circulated out front but Walker remained in control for the duration and collected the checkered flag first.  James Schaffer stayed close enough to keep them in sight with Blake Gyldenvan and Cooper Couette rounding out the top five.

 

Gyldenvan mastered the art of the holeshot for moto two only to see Walker blitz on by shortly into the race.   Walker got just a bit of a lead while Schaffer and Wagner set up a dispute over second which would run about the whole length of the moto.   When finally the action ended Walker secured the win with Schaffer and Wagner remaining 2-3 while Gyldenvan and Couette reprised their 4-5 performance from moto one.

 

Speaking of the art of the holeshot, Dalton Hein has been on a run lately and pulled the holey in moto one of the 250B class.   Wyatt McGrath was running a KX250 for this race, for the first time possibly, and soon took over out front.   While he took off, Hein found Garret Becker and Dylan Payer pressuring him and the game was on.   Becker demoted Hein just as they started into lap three and then Payer made a charge into third somewhere in the vicinity of the sandwash.   Order at the finish was then McGrath with a good lead over the still battling duo of Becker and Payer with Hein just a bit back and Gabe Gerhardt snapping up fifth.

 

Hein couldn’t hold back and holeshotted moto two.  McGrath was close though and swooped into the lead in a hurry.  Payer and Becker were quickly by too and dropped Hein back to fourth.   McGrath set a good pace out front and built a margin over Payer who in turn pulled a gap over the fighting trio of Becker, Gerhardt and Hein.    That is the order in which they finished out the day some laps later.
