PRESS RELEASE (Vaughan, ON – October 3, 2012)
Kiniry grabs second overall podium in Montreal Supercross The 35th annual Montreal Supercross, which was run under the lights at Olympic Stadium in Montreal this past Saturday, proved to be mainly an American affair with Matt Goerke, Bobby Kiniry, and Teddy Maier taking the top three spots in the action. The enthusiastic crowd that attended Canada’s oldest supercross were treated to a new formula, which saw an MX1 Main and a Super Finale Main determine the overall winner in the premier class. For Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’ Bobby Kiniry, the final big race of the Canadian motocross season ended well with an impressive second overall. In the MX1 main, Kiniry got off to a lightening start, finding himself in the top-five after one lap. While Maier took an early lead, a bobble resigned him to fifth place, with Goerke taking over the lead, Tyler Bowers moving into second, and Kiniry into third. Not long after, Bowers slid out in a corner while challenging Goerke for the lead, a mistake that allowed Kiniry to take over second place. While Goerke distanced himself up front from the chase group, Bowers rechallenged Kiniry for second place. The arenacross champ not only managed to get by Kiniry, Maier, who was also on the gas, stuck a pass on Kiniry as well.
But Kiniry wasn’t just going to take satisfaction with fourth place. With half a lap to go, he made a last ditch challenge on his potent YZ450F and successfully whipped past Maier to take the checkered flag in third place. In the Super Finale, the up-front action was again dominated by Goerke, Kiniry, and Maier. Bowers, who thanks to his second place in the MX1 main was looking good for an overall top-three podium on the night, saw any chance of that happening end, when he managed no better than a 13th place finish in the Super Finale. As he had in the Canadian Motocross Nationals, Goerke proved again that he is the fastest dirt rider of the moment, taking a solid win ahead of Kiniry and Maier. Kiniry, staying cool and calm, rode a hard and steady race to ensure overall runner-up position for the night. “The racing was tight tonight and we had some good battles out there. I felt good and comfortable on the YZ450F and it more than performed up to expectations. We came to Montreal looking for a podium finish and we accomplished our mission. It’s a great way to end the season,” Kiniry said. For Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’s Richard Grey, the Montreal Supercross turned out to be a disappointing outing. He hurt his wrist during practice in the MX2 class and was forced to watch the races from the sidelines. “This was my first opportunity to race Montreal and I was looking forward to it, but then unfortunately I go and hurt my wrist. Not exactly the weekend I had expected,” Grey said.
