Ivan Tedesco has been doing everything he can during the week and on the weekends to improve and be a consistent top ten guy. After getting his best result of the season with a 10th at A3, he worked really hard midweek prior to San Diego. Sometimes that can be a bad thing however. An athletes body always needs time to recover when running at such a high level all the time. Sometimes training, testing and practicing can just be overdone. That was the case for Tedesco this past weekend. He seemed to be run down and off all day. You need to be at the top of your game in Supercross, even more so on such a tough track.
While Ivan struggled in practice, he did improve in the heat and semi which has been a consistent occurrence thus far this year. Nearly qualifying in the heat and qualifying easily in the semi, Ivan was able to avoid the LCQ. He just couldn't quite stay on his rhythm in the main however. He made his way as high as 10th, poised for his second consecutive top ten. After a few mistakes however, he settled into a pace to avoid going down and stay healthy going into Dallas.
Ivan Tedesco: "Weird track this weekend. I kind of fought it all day. Didn't ride good in practice. I was a little better in the races, but in the main event I just couldn't really get into a flow. I knocked it back a notch and ended up 13th. It's not where I wanna be but it's another week down. We're gonna work on it and try to be better next week."
