So I know some of you are curious how the their first time on the bike has gone and from what I've been informed is that it went well. It took everyone a little while to get used to the Aprilia's since they ride a bit different than the bikes that everyone is used to but after some laps Gage, Monte and Johnny were all getting used to the bikes and picking up pace. As I get more info I will be sure to share it!
I'm sure some of you are wondering how exactly the team was made and luckily I can answer that. Very similar to how they chose the guys to go over to Mettet, the first place winners of both the FIMNASM (Johnny Lewis) and AMANational (Gage Mcallister) and a wild card (Monte Frank) who competed in both series, were the ones chosen to go. The second place finishers in both AMA and FIMNASM were chosen to go as backups to the main three.
I will continue to try and find a way to watch this live for everyone so I will keep you all updated once I find it! Until then enjoy some pics from yesterdays practice! These came from Xinside Magazine and you can head there to see the full gallery!
