Under partially cloudy skies and a high that reached 21°C (70°F) Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’s Matt Goerke battled tooth-and-nail with the Frenchman, Christophe Pourcel, for the MX1 overall win on Sunday.

 

The rivals proved to be a cut above the rest of the contenders as they basically put on a two-pony show, cranking out a blistering pace that saw them put plenty of real estate between themselves and the rest of the field in both motos. Goerke deftly claimed moto 1 in the closing stages, while Pourcel turned the tables to claim moto two, also in the closing stages.

 

The start of the first moto saw Pourcel grab the holeshot and lead the freight train around the spectacular Blackwater MX Track – which lies on the side of a large hill – presenting plenty of viewing lines for the huge crowd in attendance. Although trailing Pourcel in second place by up to five seconds for more than half the moto, Goerke proved to be the only rider to more or less stick with the former 250 World Motocross Champion and two-time AMA 250 Supercross East Champion.

 

 

By lap 14 of 19, Goerke had reduced the gap between himself and Pourcel to less than a second; he stuck a definitive pass on him the next lap and crossed the finish line with Pourcel in his rear wheel. Dillan Epstein, the third rider to greet the checkered flag, ended the moto 30 seconds behind Pourcel.

 

The start of the second moto had Goerke trailing Mike Alessi into turn one, with Pourcel in third, Tim Tremblay in fourth and Colton Facciotti in fifth. Three laps later Goerke had control of the lead, soon to be hunted down by Pourcel, who took over second place from Alessi on lap five.

 

As they had done in moto one, Goerke and Pourcel poured on the gas, with Goerke managing to enforce a lead over Pourcel that ranged between one and two seconds for the next 13 laps. The chase group, meanwhile, found themselves receding more than 10 seconds by the halfway mark – and counting – behind the lead duo.

 

In a repeat of the first moto, however, the winner wouldn’t be decided until the end and a relentless Pourcel, who hounded Goerke as if there would be no tomorrow the entire moto, stuck a pass on the Florida native in the last corner, getting a really good run around the outside and managing to edge out Goerke by less than a bike length at the finish line.

 

Although the overall win eluded Goerke in Prince George, the two-time MX1 champ served notice to Pourcel and the rest of the contenders that he has no intentions on resting of his laurels. Look for Goerke to race the wheels off his explosive YZ450F at each and every round in an attempt to garner his third title this season. If nothing else, expect a battle of the titans between now and Round 10 to decide who will be the 2017 MX Champion.

 

Goerke’s teammate Tim Tremblay, meanwhile, produced a 12th place start in the first moto. The Quebecer briefly dropped back to 13th place, then recovered to 12th to move into 11th place, where he resided for the rest of the moto. Tremblay’s fourth place start in moto two evaporated to 11th, after washing out his front end trying to pass Pourcell on the first lap. He regrouped to then claw his way into eighth place, which he held fast to the checkered flag and salvage a respectable eighth overall on the day.

“It was a fresh breath when we finally got to Prince George to see the new track, as we had heard so many mixed reviews about the Blackwater MX Track. When we laid eyes on it all the track worries were put to rest. Everyone involved in the Prince George race should be proud of their very first national. The track provided amazing racing all day in all classes,” said team manager Steve Simms. “For the team, it was also a great weekend, going two and eight, with both riders, and moving forward from Round 1. We would like to give some extra thanks this week to Motul, Cycra, FMF and Factory connection for their continued support.” 

 

The Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals resume Sunday, June 18th at Wild Rose MX Park in Calgary, AB.

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/rockstar-energy-husqvarna-factory-racings-christophe-pourcel-back-on-top <![CDATA[ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S CHRISTOPHE POURCEL BACK ON TOP!]]> 2017-06-27T11:14:33-07:00 The Rockstar Energy Canadian Motocross Nationals wrapped up round four in Regina, Saskatchewan this past weekend, and marks the start of a well-deserved short break in the Canadian series.  Since arriving in Canada one month ago, the Rockstar Energy athlete made a statement after winning his first two races in Canada, only faltering slightly with a 5th place finish in Calgary 2 weeks ago.  Pourcel came out on top once again taking the overall win again in Regina Saskatchewan this past weekend, and now plans to prepare for the sandy tracks of Eastern Canada.   

 

Pourcel: “I had a good start in the first moto; I was in the top 5 and made my way up to take the lead for a while before getting passed.  I stayed in 2nd place and had a good ride, I tried to get by, but the pace was quick so I was happy to ride safe and take 2nd.  My goal was to regroup and try to win second moto.  I got a good start again and rode in 3rd place for a while with Alessi and Goerke in front of me.  I was happy to see someone new up front.  I chased Alessi and Goerke, we had a good battle, Goerke threw his chain and I got by and took the lead.  Overall the day was really good, and now I’m focusing on preparing for the Gopher dune track which I’ve heard is quite sandy, it should be lots of fun!

 

Christophe Pourcel is now tied for first place overall in the Canadian series with 212 points.  Eastern Canadian fans will most certainly by treated to some world class riding when the season resumes in 2 weeks, July 9th in Ontario at the infamous Gopher Dunes track.

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/bittersweet-podium-for-goerke-in-regina <![CDATA[Bittersweet podium for Goerke in Regina]]> 2017-06-27T10:43:42-07:00  

What should have been a first overall for Matt Goerke at Round 4 of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals on Sunday in Regina, SK, turned into a third overall when a rock derailed his chain, effectively dropping him from first place to sixth at the end of moto two.

 

The team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha ace had already won the first MX1 moto and was what appeared to be well on his way to winning the second. Two corners before the finish line, however, a small rock totally changed the outcome of the race.

 

Fortunately, Goerke managed to get the chain back on the sprockets and continue the short distance to the finish line. But not before five riders flew past him, including archrival in the points Christophe Pourcel, Mike Alessi, Dillan Epstein, Tyler Medaglia and Kyle Chisholm.

 

The start of moto one saw Goerke in second place, following leader of the pack Pourcel closely till the end of lap one, when he stuck a rapid-fire pass on the former World Champion. From that point on, Pourcel was the only rider able to stick with Goerke as the Florida native flew over the rough and gnarly Moto Valley Raceway track as if on a rocket.

 

Although Pourcel tried to mount several attacks on Goerke, he was never able to muster the speed for a pass, finishing less than two seconds behind Goerke when the checkered flag flew. Third place Mike Alessi finished some 30 seconds behind Pourcel, an indication how fast the two frontrunners were cranking out laps, running their own private race.

 

Alessi snared the holeshot of moto two, with Goerke in second, Cade Clason in third, Pourcel fourth and Kyle Chisholm rounding out the top five. Although Alessi would build up as much as a five-second lead, Goerke kept him well within his crosshairs. After a raging battle that lasted some three laps, Goerke whipped past Alessi to grab the lead on lap nine.      

 

Goerke was soon joined by Pourcel on lap eleven, as the Frenchman had also managed to make a pass on Alessi. With some four laps left in the moto, Goerke twisted the throttle of his potent YZ450F to keep Pourcel at least two seconds behind him. Then, on the final lap, with the finish line two corners away, Goerke was betrayed by the rock. It was a disappointing ending to a great day of racing. When all was said and done, Goerke, who had a seven-point lead going into Moto Valley Raceway, left Regina tied for first place with Pourcel.

 

“I thought I rode good today, my bike worked awesome, and it looked like it was going to be two perfect motos. Then I get a rock derail my chain and it was all she wrote. Well, it could have been worse than finishing sixth, I could have been last,” Goerke said. “Third overall on the podium is okay, but a bit bittersweet considering I missed out on a clean sweep. We’ll come back in two weeks at Gopher and see if I can pick up the thread there and get some redemption”

 


 

Goerke’s teammate Tim Tremblay moved up one notch in the points from tenth to ninth after another consistent ride that saw the Quebecer wrap up the day with ninth overall, thanks to 9-9 moto results.

 

At the start of the first moto, Tremblay found himself going into turn one in fifth place. With the likes of Alessi in his rear wheel, Tremblay slipped to sixth place before the end of the first lap. Over the course of the race, he seesawed between that position and eighth, only to be relegated to ninth on the last lap. In the second moto, Tremblay was in seventh place as the freight train dove into turn one. Five laps later he was holding down ninth, a position he would defend till the end to ensure his top ten finish status for the day. 

 

“This weekend was a tough one to swallow but we are very happy with the progress we made on the bikes over the off season. We have made great advancements with our bikes on the harder pack tracks, which we have struggled on in the past. We had a very unfortunate incident this weekend with Matt, after winning the first moto and holding off a charging Pourcel he looked to have moto two wrapped up,” team manager Steve Simms said. “He rode two flawless motos with great speed. Tim put in two solid motos, despite the fact that he jammed his wrist early in moto one. But he dug deep both motos and finished the west strong. Both riders and the team are looking forward to the east swing.”

 

With blue skies and a breezy high of 21°C (70°F), Mother Nature, as she had done at the previous three western rounds, again arranged for great racing weather. 

 

The Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals take a two-week break before kicking off the eastern leg of the points chase on Sunday, July 9th at Gopher Dunes in Courtland, ON.

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/top-5-finish-for-matt-goerke-at-mx1-ntls-season-opener-in-kamloops <![CDATA[Top 5 finish for Matt Goerke at MX1 Ntls season opener in Kamloops]]> 2017-06-20T07:19:59-07:00 With mostly sunny skies and a high of 24°C, ideal racing and spectating conditions greeted one and all at the opening round of the Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals in Kamloops, BC on Sunday. A sizeable crowd flocked to Whispering Pines Raceway for the start of the season to see an international field of riders bang handlebars, including former World Champion Christophe Pourcel from France, who made his debut in the Canadian MX1 Nationals with an overall win based on 3-1 motos.

 

For Team Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha, the first round of 2017 CMRC MX1 points chase got underway with a third place podium finish for Matt Goerke in moto 2. Coupled with a fourth in moto 1, the Florida native brought home a respectable fourth place overall finish on the day. His new teammate, Tim Tremblay, didn’t quite fare as well, ending the day with 18th overall; and this due to a DNF in the second moto.

 Neither Goerke nor Tremblay’s results quite reflected their level of racing, which, like that produced by the rest of the top contenders, proved to be full-throttle on the rough, tough, and demanding Whispering Pines track. 

 

The start of the first MX1 moto saw Tremblay shoot into turn one in fifth place; Goerke was not far behind him in eighth. While Goerke clawed his way into the top five – which he accomplished by lap six – Tremblay moved briefly into fourth to then slip back to eighth place, where he ran for nine of the 15-lap race. A small error in the closing laps saw him drop one more position, crossing the finish line in ninth.

 Once Goerke had installed himself in fourth place on lap 10, he poured on the gas to reel in third place running Pourcel. With three laps remaining, Goerke managed to stick a pass on the Frenchman, but lost it right back, having to take satisfaction with fourth place at the finish line.

 

Although Kaven Benoit held court up front for more than half the moto, after getting the holeshot, a crash saw that position taken over by California’s Dillan Epstein, another newcomer to the series. Benoit would finish sixth while Epstein, who no one had heard of before, suddenly became a household name by keeping the lead intact to the checkered flag.

 The start of the second moto saw both Goerke and Tremblay put their potent YZ450Fs into the mix with a third and fifth place respectively as the freight train barreled into turn one. Although Facciotti briefly led the throng, Pourcel took over before the end of the first lap, after a get-off by Facciotti.

 

An on fire Goerke, who had quickly maneuvered into second place, after Facciotti’s error, hounded Pourcel till the halfway point of the moto, at which time he replaced him as the new leader. Pourcel, however, stayed close enough to No.2 ranked Goerke to mount a passing challenge of his own, which he did a few laps later,  reclaiming the lead and securing the moto win.  

 

Facciotti, who managed to regroup after his first lap crash, soon came knocking on Goerke’s rear fender as well. With just three laps to go, the multi-time champ managed to displace Goerke, who tried everything to hold Facciotti at bay, from second place. At that point Goerke’s chances of ending the day with an overall podium finish went down the drain.

 

 “When you think you got things under control only to discover you’re not quite there it’s a bitter pill to swallow. I’m not exactly sure where, when or how I dropped the ball, but I know I rode hard and I wanted that second moto win real bad. Good news is that this was the first race of the season and not the last,” Goerke said.

 

Tremblay, meanwhile, was unable to hold on to or improve on his fifth place start. Before the midway mark of the moto he found himself dealing with an unidentified mechanical gremlin. He was unable to reach the mechanics’ area to have it checked out and had to retire from the race.  

 

“I had a blast this weekend at Kamloops for my first national with my new team. Unfortunately I got a bit tight in my arms in the first moto and had to settle the pace to end up ninth. We’re still not sure what happened in moto two,” Tremblay said. “My YZ450F was running amazing and next thing I know my race was over. Overall, though, I’m really happy with my bike and the team. It was a good learning curve. Everybody worked really hard. Can’t wait for next round.” 

 

While the opening round was not a bad round for Goerke – he was where he was expected to be, racing with the frontrunners and collecting points – for Tremblay it was not quite the start he had hoped for. But with a long hot summer and nine rounds left on the schedule, the possibilities are endless for both riders. 

 

“Overall, for our first race of the year, things went well. I felt the bikes worked good. We had a very unfortunate DNF with Tim, but that’s part of racing and we will move forward. After a long off-season, the first round is about seeing what’s up with everybody else,” team manager Steve Simms said. 

  

 “It’s kind of about measuring yourself up against the competition, see where they stand, see where you stand. I think we did just fine. We know where we stand. We know where we need a bit of extra attention,” said team manager Steve Simms.

 The Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals resume Sunday, June 11th at Blackwater MX Track in Prince George, British Columbia.

http://rockstarenergy.com/company/news/rockstar-energy-husqvarna-factory-racings-christophe-pourcel-finishes-5th-overall-in-calgary <![CDATA[ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S CHRISTOPHE POURCEL FINISHES 5TH OVERALL IN CALGARY]]> 2017-06-20T07:19:56-07:00 The Rockstar Energy Canadian Motocross National Series made its third stop of the season yesterday in Calgary Alberta.  Blue skies and a beautifully groomed track greeted riders and fans.  Christophe Pourcel had plans to continue his winning streak from the past two rounds where he finished 1st overall, but this would not be the case in Calgary. 

 

Pourcel: “I felt okay in the first moto, I really wanted to catch up to the guys out front but I couldn’t quite manage to make my way up to 1st place. I had to settle for 3rd place but I was really looking forward to doing better in the second moto.” 

 

In the second moto Pourcel chose a starting gate closer towards the middle hoping to get out front at the start and distance himself from the traffic. 

 

Pourcel: “I had a good jump off the start but the line was so tight, riders were being pushed together.  Some riders who were pushed together crashed and then fell into me knocking me over in the second turn.  It was a hard crash but I managed to get up and work my way up to 8th place.  It wasn’t the finish I had envisioned but the most important thing is to keep a positive attitude because this is just how racing goes sometimes.  We salvaged as many points as we could and we hope to feel better going into next week’s race.”

 

Pourcel and his wife Samantha have been enjoying travelling in BC and Alberta for the past week between rounds, something the busy couple wouldn’t normally be able to do due to their demanding schedule.  The drive through Banff was something the couple stated was a highlight of their trip so far.  Canada has been treating the team well, and the Pourcels plan to fly into the next round in Regina Saskatchewan where the team will be ready to tackle round 4 of the Canadian MX Nationals.

His teammate Tim Tremblay took home a noteworthy top ten overall finish, recording eighth on the strength of 8-7 results.

 

Another weekend of perfect racing conditions—both track and weather—assured top-flight action that saw the title contenders put themselves and their bikes through the paces as the western leg of the championship starts winding down. Blue skies and a high that reached a comfortable 21°C (70°F) furthermore attracted a record crowd to the spectacular supercross style inner city track.

 

With his first overall and second moto win of the season, Goerke effectively took over the points lead from Christophe Pourcel while Tremblay migrated from 12th on the scoreboard to tenth. Going into Calgary Goerke was in second place, down seven points; leaving Calgary he turned the tables on Pourcel to now hold a seven-point lead over the Frenchman.

 

 

Goerke started the day off on solid footing when he nailed a second place start behind Dillan Epstein in moto one. Action up front was fast and furious, with the top six riders that included Mike Alessi, Tyler Medaglia, Colton Facciotti and Pourcel, never separated by more than a few seconds. Goerke lost one position on lap two—due to a bobble—but quickly regrouped to latch on to second place again. He then set out to chase down Epstein, who had close to a five second lead by this time.

 

Although Goerke, heavy on the throttle of his potent YZ450F, came to within a split second of Epstein in the closing laps of the moto, he was unable to set up a successful pass on the Thousand Oaks, CA resident. Pourcel followed Goerke across the finish line in third, with Facciotti in fourth and Alessi in fifth.

 

Tremblay also got a favourable start that had him rocket around the track in sixth place on lap one. The Quebecer was relegated to seventh for a few laps before losing one more position. Once there he held down eighth place till the finish line.

 

 

The start of moto two had Goerke in fourth place, going into the first turn, with Tremblay two positions behind him. A strong start by Epstein, which saw him pin the holeshot, put him at the head of the pack where he held court for the next ten of 16 laps.

 

As in moto one the racing sizzled as the top five banged handlebars for position, with Goerke in the mix clawing his way into second place around the halfway point. He only resided there for a few laps, though, before quickly reeling in Epstein on lap ten and laying on the pressure. A bobble by Epstein on the same lap, that dropped him back to fourth place, paved the way for Goerke take over the lead.

 

Facciotti, who had also been on the move, after a seventh place start, came to within half a second of Goerke on lap 11. Despite setting up a number of attacks to overtake Goerke, Facciotti was unable to complete the task and would take satisfaction with second place. Medaglia, who along with Facciotti also cashed in on Epstein’s error, completed the podium in third. Epstein and Alessi sealed the top five with fourth and fifth respectively.

 

“It was great to be on the podium this weekend with the overall win. Everything came together nicely. I felt great on my YZ450F, which ran amazing. Thanks to everybody on the team and sponsors for their contribution to putting me in the winner’s circle,” Goerke said.  

 

 

For Tremblay, the second moto was nearly a rerun of the first. He dropped back two positions to eighth—after his sixth place start—to then quickly move ahead one spot into seventh place, where he ran a lonely race all the way to the finish line.

 

“I had a good, consistent two motos in Calgary and feeling better and better every weekend with the progress I’m making. I can’t thank the team enough for their great effort and thanks also to all our sponsors for their support. Our bikes are working great. A shout out to my teammate who killed it this weekend with his first place overall,” Tremblay noted. For Steve Simms, the weekend was extra sweet, getting his first overall win with Matt Goerke as Rockstar Energy OTSFF Yamaha’s new team manager, and seeing Tim Tremblay ride the wheels of his bike to race in the top ten where he belongs. 

“The team has been working hard and today showed the hard work everyone has put in. Tim had a great day and his best so far with eighth overall and then Matt battled hard in both motos to come away with first overall,” Simms said. “We would like thank everyone on the team, Chris, Andre, Renee, Monique, Scott, Todd, Steve, Jim, Keith, Tim and Matt and give an extra thanks to these sponsors, Factory Connection, Motion Pro, and Fly.”
