Jordon Smith on his DNQ at Detroit and Atlanta podium
Jordon Smith admitted his emotions got the best of him in Detroit after the heat race battle bleed into more crashes and ultimately not qualifying for the main event despite having podium speed.
We asked an honest Jordon what happened from his side with those mistakes and why his night in Atlanta that saw him land on the podium in second, went so much bettter.
“In that heat I was just not thinking clearly, made some mistakes after I went down. I was just trying to get back up front and was pretty fired up. The LCQ, I went into it with a clear head, stalled it on the first lap and couldn’t get my bike started. I was so far back, I gave it everything I had to get in there.
“I didn’t really ride much inbetween but how I rode tonight is how I’ve been riding for the most part all season, it’s just been little mistakes. We made some slight bike changes today, I felt like that really helped me get that extra comfort on the track and a little bit more under control. It was good to put in a ride like that, it was definitely a confidence building ride putting in one like that on a track like that today.”
