The Heat was turned up at Budds Creek this past weekend and Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM’s Shane McElrath turned it up even more by earning his first overall victory of the season with an impressive 1-1 sweep at Round 11. McElrath elevated his performance on Saturday to dominate the competition. It was the clean starts and smooth riding that ultimately gave McElrath the confidence to pull away from his competition in both Moto’s.
“Today was kind of Surreal, pretty crazy day all together actually and definitely something I was not expecting that’s for sure! My Goal this season has been to work towards the podium and I wanted to be on the podium by the end of the year- This was kind of a dream ride for myself today here at Budds Creek” – Shane McElrath #12
