La Crosse, WI (6/8/2017) - Root River Racing’s amateur racer Alex Gillette competed in the fifth round of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship. Racing was held at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, TN where Gillette took seventh in 450 A, and sixth in College 16-24.

Gillette started off the weekend with some bad luck on the gate picks, but this was no match for his RRR/Hoosier/Motowoz Honda. “On Saturday I actually got horrible gate positions with 16th in College and 20th in 450A,” explained Gillette. Despite the challenging gate picks, Gillette persevered and came out to finish ninth in 450 A, and sixth in College.

The great finishes on Saturday set Gillette up with some better gate picks for Sunday’s second motos. “I got the gates I wanted and I was near the front of the pack in both classes,” said Gillette. Gillette improved on his first moto finishes with a seventh in 450 A, and a fourth in College.

Gillette has had a consistent and strong season and is now sitting in the top five in the points championship in the College 16-24 class. “It is good but I always want better, so I continue to train and try to improve. I would like to do better and hopefully move up in the second half of the season,” explained Gillette.

Gillette’s continued training will be put to good use at the sixth round of the season when the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship heads to Sunset Ridge MX in Walnut, IL June 17-18.
