Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Rider Joey Savatgy Wins East/West Final

May 9, 2016

Las Vegas played host to the final race of the 2016 Monster Energy® AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship season. Monster Energy Kawasaki riders Eli Tomac and Josh Grant prepared to leave it all out on the track in the rain soaked Sam Boyd Stadium. In 450 Heat 1 Grant earned a transfer to the Main Event with a fourth place finish while Tomac crossed the line third in 450 heat 2. After the final gate drop of the 2016 season, Tomac rounded Turn 1 in fifth with Grant in eighth. Before the end of the first lap Tomac had raced up into third, then went down and dropped back to ninth, but immediately put his head down and started working towards the front. In no time at all Tomac had cut through the group of riders in front of him and put his KX™450F back in a podium position. With two laps to go, while running in seventh, Grant was involved in an incident relegating him back to 11th place where he would remain until the checkers. Tomac continued to take time out of the leader until...

Ninja ZX-10R - Both KRT Riders On The Imola WorldSBK Podium Again

May 2, 2016

Jonathan Rea and his KRT team-mate Tom Sykes stood on the podium for the second time in two days at Imola, with Rea once more second and Sykes again a close third on their all-new Ninja ZX-10Rs. Jonathan now has a championship lead of 35 points while Tom is third, 32 points from overall second place. Rea and Sykes rode in tandem at times in the second race of the Imola weekend, which was finally held in dry conditions after heavy overnight rain. Neither KRT rider could get into contention with double race winner Chaz Davies today, despite each making changes for the second race that indicated a positive direction in overall set-up. Like the first race of the weekend, held on Saturday 30 April, Sykes was just too far back at the end to make a challenge on Rea. Jonathan had to overcome an issue with his electronics cutting out and also almost falling as he ran wide when exiting the slow final chicane in his early pursuit of Davies. For Rea his two runner-up places keep him in...
