Post Race Report St. Louis: Fist pumps and foot pegs
This past weekend's race took place at Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. Like all races, each venue has a different track layout. The most interesting obstacle for this location was the split rhythm section, creating a challenge both physically and mentally for the riders.
Ronnie Stewart, #69, challenged current point leader and factory rider Ryan Dungey out of the gate in the heat race, going bar to bar as they competed for the hole shot. Ronnie finished 10th that race, but managed to make the main in the semi race with the 4th place transfer position. As always, Ronnie crossed the finish line with a fist pump for the fans.
During the first timed qualifying practice, Robert Lind, #869, went down in the whoops section after getting tangled up with another rider. As the rider went down, his foot peg went into Robert's chest just below his left arm. According to Robert's Facebook, he was transferred to a local hospital where he had surgery to clean out the deep cut. Luckily nothing was broken, but unfortunately, Robert's 2015 supercross season has come to an end. He is hoping to get back to riding soon to prepare for the outdoor nationals.
Throughout the day fans were able to come and meet the riders in the pro pits. During one autograph session Ronnie went through nearly 500 posters, signing them for the fans as they stopped by. Fans also received a PRBC.com bag with a dirt candy sticker, Pirelli tire guide and a Robert Lind poster.
At our pit area, PRBC clients enjoyed a VIP experience, which includes water, pit area tour, personal meet and greet, a picture on a bike and behind-the-scenes entertainment.
This coming weekend the riders have off for the Easter holiday. However, Ronnie will be in Oklahoma training for the next race in Houston, Texas to be held April 11th.
