Round 2 - Thad DuVall
|| Round 2 of the Rekluse AMA National Enduro Series was held in Sally, SC
(Sandlapper Enduro). Team Shenandoah Honda/USWE-sports.com rider Thad DuVall has been spending most
of this recent time in Florida preparing for the GNCC opener next week at River Ranch. Practicing
tight woods and getting in shape paid of this weekend with a well earned third place Overall.
With some cold temperature on Saturday, Sunday turned out to be a perfect day for racing. Test one gave
DuVall a fifth place, 13 seconds slower then winner Mullins. DuVall: “I had a hard time getting going
in the first test, I couldn’t get into a groove”. The following tests were better with a 2nd and a 4th
place, keeping him in contention for a podium.
Test 4 and 5 were solid with a 3rd and a 5th, making the the last and final test very important
to finish on the podium with just 5 seconds separating him from Bobbitt in 4th. The last test was 13
miles long and DuVall was able to win it and secure third place.
|DuVall: “I had fun today. The bike (Honda 250) worked really good and I had no issues
at all today. I like the longer sections and I felt good racing the last 13 miles. To win one of
these, I have to be more aggressive from the start and be consistent.”
DuVall will now travel back to Florida, where he will get ready for round 1 of the GNCC on Tuesday
