Tyler Evans maintains his points lead in THQ World Supercross GP Series
Tyler Evans continues to reign as THQ World Supercross GP points leader.
After the unexpected departure of Tyler's mechanic, Suzuki stepped up by providing the services of the highly regarded Tony Berluti. They also moved Tyler into the Suzuki parking line-up. Although there has been a lot of talk of Tyler riding a factory Suzuki, he is still on board his ECC Pro-Circuit built Suzuki.
The buzz this weekend was the introduction of Tyler's potential title sponsor - Tommy Hilfiger. By highlighting the visibility of Supercross, and exposing the Tommy brand to the influential action sport demographic. A deal is being negotiated for the remainder of the season.
The night got off to a good start when Tyler worked his way from a mid pack start to 3rd place in his heat race. His performance was setting the stage for a great night.
Tyler got off to a fair start in the main event, immediately working his way into 7th, and challenging Nick Wey for 6th. On Lap 4, an unfortunate fall in the whoops put him back near 19th place. After Tyler recovered he had a hard time regaining his momentum and finished in a disappointing 16th place. Tyler said, "When I fell, I lost my focus and concentration. And was unable to get up to speed. I wish the next race was tomorrow so I can redeem myself."
Tyler would like to thank Roger DeCoster at Suzuki for providing Tony Berluti's services this weekend, and weeks to come. A special thanks to Tony for a great job.
Tyler, entering a new phase in his career has signed with Crown Athlete Management Group, Inc. and is competing as a privateer aboard an ECC backed Suzuki. Tyler's supporters and sponsors include Monster Energy, No Fear, Spy Optic, HJC Helmets, ECC, DVS Shoes, TAG and Dunlop Tires.
