Evennou on the podium at Morden
Another weekend, another race in the books, another podium for the team. This weekend was looking pretty ugly at first with all the rain that happened on Saturday but the track ended up being pretty good on Sunday.
Teddy has definitely established himself as the favorite to win the title, that first moto he was on it and he really made a statement to his competition. Unfortunately, his motor locked up in the second moto, which is a harsh reality in this class. 250F's tend to do that sometimes and the team learned from it and it won't happen again. Luckily he had a pretty solid lead over Nye going into the moto so he only ends up being down 2 points. He can gain that back with one moto win so there's plenty of time left to take care of business.
Nick has been a clutch guy this year. When Teddy dnf'd, Nick kept the teams podium streak alive with a 3rd in the moto and 3rd overall. I know he's not happy with that though, he wants to win one of these soon. Good thing he loves sand, maybe he'll finally pull it off at Gopher Dunes.
I'm sure Brock was hoping for a mud race. The BC native is no stranger to mud and has had some of his best finishes when the going gets slimey. He proved that by cutting the fastest lap in practice when the track was still a soupey mess. Still, in the first moto he finished a solid 6th so he's been getting it done rain or dry this season.
