CONROE, Texas – Phoenix Racing’s Jayden Londerville captured seventh in the Pro Sport class at the second round of the ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship. With opening round jitters now out of the way, Londerville was able to secure a top 10 finish in Pro Sport. He also secured top five finishes in two other classes, taking fourth in Production A and second in 450A.
The event was hosted April 2-3 at Three Palms Action Sports Park in Conroe, Texas, where the weather was in the 80s with the sun beating down. Even with good track maintenance, the sand still made for a rough ride.
Londerville took sixth in Pro Sport Heat 2, setting himself up well for Moto 1. He had a good start in the first moto, passing several riders to end up sixth. In the second moto, he had an outside gate pick and got pushed wide off of the start. Sitting near the back of the field, he made several passes within the first lap to move into seventh. He held the spot to the finish line. He walked away from the weekend with seventh overall, a vast improvement over the first round of the season.
In Production A, Londerville showed impressive speed, going 4-5 for fourth overall. In the first moto, he was closing in on the leader when his bike overheated. Londerville struggled to get it started again, but eventually rejoined the race in seventh. He pushed hard to regain positions and finished in fourth. The team regrouped after the moto and was able to fix the mechanical issue before the start of the next Production A moto. After a tough Moto 2 start, he came through Lap 1 in 10th. He gained two positions by the next lap and repeated it again for Lap 3. He gained yet another spot to take fifth at the line.
Londerville had his best performance of the weekend in the 450A class, where he went 4-1 for second overall. After getting pinched off in the first corner of Moto 1, he powered his Yamaha YFZ 450R back to second. Nearing the end of the race, he encountered another mechanical issue, causing his bike to shut off again. He lost a few positions but was able to work his way back up to fourth. In the second moto, his leg got caught between the nerf bar and front tire off of the starting line. After sorting that situation out, he was towards the back of the pack. He set his eyes on getting to the front and was able to work his way into the fourth, where he settled in for majority of the race, before moving into the lead on the last lap to take the moto win.
“I felt really good all weekend,” said Jayden Londerville. “I had really fast lap times, but bike problems and bad starts it made it difficult to get any good finishes. I am going to continue to ride and get more comfortable on the bike. Next round, I’m focusing on better starts and results.”
Londerville’s solid start to the season positions him seventh in Pro Sport headed into round three. He also holds fourth in Production A and second in 450A.
The 10-round series continues on April 16-17 at Aonia Pass MX in Washington, Ga.
