The rough and sandy track in Southwick, Massachusets, is always a challenge for both man and machine, which makes it perfect for the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team.
The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing hit the hallway point of the Pro Motocross season at the toughest track of the year
Caden Braswell showed continued improvement his best pro finishes to date
Good news! The team is expecting Pierce Brown to be back in action next week
Caden Braswell and his MC 250F Factory Edition came into Southwick looking to continue the upward trajectory of his rookie season. When the gate dropped for moto one, he was in 16th position at the end of lap one, and he steadily worked his way steadily, finishing ninth by moto’s end. He backed that up with a 12th in moto two, giving him a solid tenth overall for the day, the first time he’d cracked the top ten overall.
Caden Braswell: “Out here at Southwick it was a fun one. I got to do some sand surfing and had a blast with the team. We got our best result of the season so far. I'm happy to be putting the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS machine in the top ten, but I'm hungry for more and super-grateful for the opportunity."
